Two road rage incidents not connected; police still seek suspect

CHAMBERSBURG -- Two recent road rage cases are not connected. That was the word today from a multi-state task force investigating the apparent cold-blooded killing of a man on I-81 this past Saturday.

Seven hours before the I-81 homicide, a Dillsburg area man was shot out in Monaghan Township, York County. Through some analysis at the state police headquarters in Chambersburg, the task force has determined the two incidents were not related.

They again ask for the publics help in finding the killer in the I-81 incident and want to refocus their attention on the public looking for a Ford Ranger XLT Pick-up, probably dark in color.

They believe the driver of that car pursued 28-year-old Timothy Davison from the Maryland border into Pennsylvania. The driver of the Ford Ranger forced Davisons car off the road near mile marker 3 in Franklin County and then walked up to Davisons car and opened fire. During that chase, Davison made contact with 911 dispatchers in both Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow for Davison in his hometown of Poland, Maine. That is where he was headed on Saturday when he was forced off the road.

There is absolutely nothing to indicate Mr. Davison did anything to provoke this, said Cpt. Steven Junkin with Troop H of the Pennsylvania State Police.

We believe he was randomly selected and this actor had murderous intent.
We strongly believe someone in tri-state area will link the suspect vehicle to this horrible and senseless crime, he added.

The task force is putting out alerts to body shops about the Ford Ranger which is believed to have damage to the front driver side.

CBS 21 went to Phils Body Shop in Paxtang. They believe, based on the damage inflicted on Davisons SUV, there would be very visible damage to the Ford Ranger pick-up truck, along with paint transfer from the victims car.

While the task force ended speculation that a road rage case in York County is connected, they could not end the speculation that the driver responsible for the killing of Davison will do it again.

Will this person do it again? We don't want to take that chance. Law enforcement in all three states are working to ensure that doesn't happen, working tirelessly to get them off the road quickly, Junkin said.

They are urging anyone with any information to call 1-800-4-PATIPS (1-800-472-2477).Two road rage incidents not connected; police still seek suspect
