Jerry Banks, a Colorado man implicated in an international murder-for-hire plot, changed his plea to guilty for kidnapping and murdering Gregory Davis of Vermont. Davis had threatened to expose a fraudulent oil deal to the FBI. Banks’ plea comes as part of a wider investigation linking him to other co-conspirators, Serhat Gumrukcu and Berk Eratay, both yet to be tried, and Aren Lee Ethridge, who pleaded guilty in July. Davis’ death in 2018 sparked a four-year probe establishing connections among the four suspects, revealing a dark web of friendship and deceit.
