David Nalley Obituary, Death – David J. Nalley, 50 years old, has been named as the victim of the deadly stabbing that occurred early on Sunday morning in Evansville, Indiana. The incident occurred following a fight between two parties. The Boonville resident Nalley passed away at Deaconess Hospital on Sunday due to “multiple sharp force trauma,” as stated by the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office. According to the police, Nalley received a stab wound early on Sunday morning after getting into a confrontation with Devin Clements, who is 35 years old. Clements was taken into custody by law enforcement on Tuesday morning, and he was taken to the prison in Vanderburgh County to be held on a preliminary count of murder.
The tragic incident took place at around 2:12 a.m. on Sunday inside an apartment located in the 1000 block of Cherry Street, as stated in the affidavit that was used to justify Clements’ arrest. Nalley was taken to the hospital after a witness to the incident contacted 911 and reported that she had been stabbed. According to the affidavit, a witness immediately after the stabbing identified Clements as the suspect. Clements had fled the area on foot at the time of the incident. According to information provided by Detective Quinton Keil of the Evansville Police Department, Clements and Nalley were at first “getting along as friends” at the apartment while they were there for a prearranged visit.Keil was informed by a witness that the two guys started fighting after roughly an hour and a half had passed. The witness indicated that the conflict started out as a verbal exchange but quickly escalated into a violent one.
According to the testimony of the witness, the stabbing took place after Nalley shoved Clements against a wall. The witnesses testified that as Nalley stepped back from the wall, she added, “He stabbed me.” The witness said that she directly saw Clements stab Nalley with a knife, and she relayed this information to Keil. According to the affidavit, a second witness saw Clements gathering his personal goods after the stabbing and saw that Clements was in possession of a pocket knife throughout this time. After Nalley was transported to the hospital, Keil conducted interviews with a number of witnesses, one of whom was Nalley’s girlfriend, who had previously arranged to pick him up from the residence. She mentioned that Nalley had arrived at 11 o’clock at night, and she added that she would pick him up around two in the morning.
