Tom Schilk didn’t see the tourist he had stripped naked and bound fall from the third floor of his West Philadelphia apartment building.
He was in another unit, two floors down.
“We heard a bang and we went out front and [Felix] Davila was lying on the pavement. He was really damaged,” said Schilk.
This was 1984. Schilk lured Davila to his property with the false promise of a sexual encounter, an improvised ruse to rob him. Schilk left him alone and, suddenly, the 35 year-old teacher from Baton Rouge was dead and no one knew exactly what happened.
