10/5 Just passing through

Who: Stony Davis — yes, it’s on his ID — and his friend Tyler Smith from Wheatland, Wyo.

Where they’re going: Davis said they were trekking to Fort Worth where some relatives of his promised them a job. He also said this was their first lengthy trip in the car they were driving, which had a dented hood and was giving them trouble.

Thoughts on Tucumcari: Davis said the gas station was also giving them trouble since they were down to their last check, fully out of cigarettes and nearly out of gas and the station wouldn’t accept an out-of-state check. “At least there’s friendly people,” Davis said
