Davis's criminal record begins in Indiana where he was first convicted of molesting children in 1992. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, he served only 28 months. As a free man, Davis worked as a youth counselor and lived in an RV beside his parents' home in Wadesville, Indiana—where he allegedly raped at least one other young victim.
Davis continued a pattern of befriending mothers with young children. Kids knew him as "the rubber band man" for his ability to make toys out of rubber bands—toys prosecutors say he used to lure his victims.
Last year, children started coming forward. Three boys claimed he had molested them, one said he had been raped repeatedly. Once Davis learned police were looking for him, he fled to Fargo, North Dakota. He shaved his head and began using an alias—his brother's name, Mark. And, like so many others, he failed to register as a sex offender. The families Davis befriended had no knowledge of his sinister past.
