Streator explosion survivor murdered in Texas

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2015

A former Streator man who survived a house explosion in Streator last fall was murdered last week while working in a Texas prison.

47-year-old Timothy Davison was beaten to death July 15th while escorting an inmate back to his cell in New Boston, Texas. Davison had been a correctional officer at the prison since December.

The inmate accused of the murder is 37-year-old Billy Tracy, who is serving a life sentence for aggravated assault and battery.

Davison moved to Texas after surviving a house explosion in the 300 block of Court Street in Streator last September. The explosion killed his 82-year-old mother.

Davison had two daughters who live with their mom in the Chicago suburbs.
