A Quiet Death

The last his family heard from him, Jacob Davidson said he could never return home. A year later, he was dead. The police say it was suicide. Those who knew him think otherwise.

Many people who knew Jake have unanswered questions about what happened itching in their brains. Meanwhile, Jeremy Kendrick is buried in Garden Plains, Kansas, in a plot beside the father who died before he was born, but whose surname Kendrick nevertheless reclaimed to become a young man called Jacob Davidson. Given the year that separated the last time they'd spoken with him and the call that announced his death, Janice and Bob Kendrick never knew much about the life Jake had made for himself in the heart of Dallas' gay scene. But Mrs. Kendrick refuses to relinquish the young man she raised.

"He never liked [the name he was born with]," she recalls. "But I told him, 'You'll always be my Jeremy.'"
