On 10-16-1981, security officer George Davie (56-years-old) was shot and killed while standing post at the Port Royal Plantation Security Gate at approximately 1:00am. The unknown suspects then took Davie’s handgun and fled the scene, presumably in a vehicle.
No suspects were ever identified. By all accounts, Davie’s was vigilant in his duties and it is believed he may have confronted suspects bringing illegal narcotics into Port Royal Plantation. This theory has not been proven. Davie’s handgun has yet to be recovered.
