The FBI says a hit-man posed as a federal agent to kidnap and murder a Danville man four years ago

The FBI says a hit-man posed as a federal agent to kidnap and murder a Danville man four years ago.  Greg Davis, 49, was found hand-cuffed and dead from multiple gunshot wounds near 1648 Peacham Road in Barnet at about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018. Two days later all court records related to the case were sealed in Caledonia Superior Court at the request of prosecutors. But on Wednesday, a man identified in federal court documents as Colorado resident Jerry Banks was arrested at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and now stands accused of a sophisticated murder-for-hire plot. Davis lived with his family at 884 Hawkins Road in Danville. According to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court by FBI Special Agent Patrick Hanna, Davis’s wife Melissa told the Vermont State Police (VSP) that she and her husband were in their bedroom when they heard a knock on the door at about 9 p.m. on Jan. 6, 2018. “Davis went to the door to see who was there,” Davis came back to the bedroom and told his wife that a man claiming to be a U.S. Marshal came to the victim’s home to arrest him. The next day, Greg Davis’ body was found by a passer-by partially covered by snow near the base of a snowbank in a pull-off on the west side of Peacham Road. On January 10, 2018, the U.S. Marshal’s Service confirmed that Greg Davis was not arrested by their agency and that there had been no active federal warrants for Davis.
