Some Union Parish residents are still trying to absorb the shock of the tragic death of Vergie Page. The 76-year-old Farmerville native was allegedly shot in the chest by her companion, Carl Eldred Davis, 74, of 611 Vernon Street in Ruston, on April 17.
Davis was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He remains in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on a $475,000 bond.
The loss of Page is, according to long-time friend Tim Tettleton, a loss to the entire community.
