This afternoon the Texas Department of Public Safety released internal records about the demotion of former Texas Ranger Brent Davis of Tyler, and the records don’t paint a pretty picture.
According to an August 11, 2017 affidavit from Mr. Davis, he began having an affair with Faezeh Horaney, widow of murder victim Ron Horaney, after he was assigned to investigate Mr. Horaney’s murder. The affidavit states that the affair came to light only because Mrs. Horaney’s children discovered her explicit text messages with the ranger:
I do not remember when, Faezeh contacted me and said her children had found text messages between the two of us, confronted her and were mad because I was investigating their father’s death. I told Faezeh that if the children said anything that I would get into a lot of trouble. I told her that I did not need to get into any trouble and attempted to stop communications with her.
Faezah told me that she needed my friendship, my support and relied on me to help her with difficult decisions. Faezeh had a disagreement with her mother-in-law and had learned a long-time friend was not truthful with her. Faezeh felt like everyone was trying to get money from her since she received the life insurance payment from her husband’s death.
I did not stop communication with her at that time. She was someone easy to talk to about my problems and she relied on my communication to help her with her situation…
There was one intimate encounter after the children confronted her about the text messages between the two of us…
In other words, even after the kids found out about the affair and objected, Mr. Davis and Mrs. Horaney kept doing their thing. Classy.
Somebody in the Horaney family apparently got fed up, however, because Major Grover Huff wrote in an August 8, 2017 memo that a family member reported the affair directly to him. You can read the entire investigative file by clicking here. The Office of Inspector General recorded its interview of Mr. Davis, and I’ve uploaded that file to YouTube.
What a horrible situation for Ron Horaney’s kids and his mom. According to a July 27, 2017 email from Major Huff, they were all present at Ron and Faezah’s home on Memorial Day when he was gunned down. And now, as if that wasn’t bad enough, they have to deal with Mr. Davis’s exploitation of the tragedy.
Shortly after I broke the story about Mr. Davis’s demotion, a high school friend (and fellow ex-cop) sent me a link to a letter to the editor of Polk County Today. According to the author, Brian Lathan, a Texas Ranger began having an affair with Mr. Lathan’s wife while he was supposed to be investigating the murder of the couple’s son. Mr. Lathan’s marriage was destroyed and his family further traumatized, but as best I can tell the ranger suffered no adverse consequences.
Ex Ranger Brent Davis is mentioned in my earlier article about the Federal Lawsuit I have filed against DPS recently in Travis County. Here is a link in case you missed it. http://texaspubliccorruption.com/corruption-and-cover-ups-at-the-texas-department-of-public-safety/
Meanwhile, according to Mr. Davis’s LinkedIn page, he’s playing full-time Rambo on the border, so maybe he’s found himself some female illegal immigrants to chase. Rangers Division Chief Randall Prince noted in a November 14, 2017 letter that Mr. Davis could have been fired for his misconduct. He should have been.
