police release 911 call after vontae davis dies at grandmother s house

Police released former Miami Dolphins star Vontae Davis’ personal assistant’s 911 call seconds after he died in a Southwest Ranches house Monday.

Police said Davis’ assistant initially placed a call to 911, reporting that a woman at the residence had found the former Dolphins star cornerback unresponsive in the gym area of the home on Monday.

“He arrived, and he’s on the ground of the residence. He called me, and he didn’t even speak–that’s why I called,” she said.

“I know there are weapons in the house,” the assistant told the dispatcher. Still, she became overwhelmed and unable to communicate, prompting her assistant to call for help.

In a series of released 911 calls, the assistant, en route to the Southwest Ranches home, described the distressing scene via FaceTime and recounted when she last saw Davis.

The medical examiner arrived shortly after, with police announcing that foul play was not suspected in the case. Although police identified Davis as the homeowner, property records show that his grandmother, Adaline Davis, owns the home.

Davis’s last post on Instagram was made just last week, and he promoted a children’s book he had recently completed.

Davis is the brother of former San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis. After spending three seasons in Miami, Vontae Davis was traded to the Indianapolis Colts right before the start of the 2012 season.

During an episode of Hard Knocks in 2012, football fans gained an insider’s perspective into the workings of then-Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland, who orchestrated a trade to send Davis to the Colts.

An unforgettable moment occurred on the show when Ireland had to break the news of the trade to Davis. Davis immediately reacted by “Call grandma,” a gesture that reflected his deep admiration for her as his hero and the one who raised him, his four sisters, and two brothers.

Davis finished his career with 121 games played (113 starts), totaling 395 tackles, 97 passes defensed, and 22 interceptions in 10 seasons.
