A multi-jurisdictional task force has been formed to identify the I-81 road rage killer responsible for the death of Timothy Davison on January 4, 2014. Davison, 28, of Poland, Maine, was heading home after visiting family in Florida when he was shot and killed during an apparent road rage incident near Exit 3 in Antrim Township, Franklin County.

The task force will be a collaborative effort of the Pennsylvania State Police, Maryland State Police, Carroll Township Police Department and the FBI.

Pennsylvania State Police and the Carroll Township Police of York County are investigating two very similar cases which occurred within roughly eight hours of one another on January 3rd and 4th of 2014.

Police say that while there are many similarities between the two incidents they have not found enough evidence at this time to conclusively link the shootings.  Police are treating the investigations as being related, however, until conclusive evidence proves otherwise.

What happened to Davison ceased to be random after his first encounter with his killer, according to a release issued by State Police. After theinitial encounter, the acts were very deliberate, calculated, and violent.  Police say they are concerned about the potential for more incidents like this one.

Investigators believe someone in the Tri-State Area knows who is or may be responsible for Davison’s death.  If you know someone, with violent tendencies, that owns or operates a Ford Ranger style vehicle and has damage to it; you are encouraged to contact PA Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (800-472-8477).  Additionally if you were travelling on Interstate 81, near the MD and PA line on January 4th, 2014 between 0130 and 0215 you are strongly encourage to contact police if you observed anything thing which you believe is connected to this investigation.
