Logan Paul Voss and Ashleigh Decker decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday with a visit to the Treehouse Pub & Eatery in Davenport.

The seemingly happy couple posted a photo of their smiling faces on Voss’ Facebook page. The post read, “Happy Valentine’s Day to my one true love. Thank you for all you do and for always being there no matter what and loving me unconditionally. You are the best.”

The special occasion ended with Voss, 24, of Goose Lake, covered in blood, wandering the 900 block of State Street in Bettendorf. He asked a passerby for help, saying he had “run over his girlfriend”.

Decker was located several blocks away, near the intersection of 13th and Gilbert streets — a light industrial area framed by storage units and a view of the new Interstate 74 bridge. Bettendorf police said his body was on the ground, behind the passenger side steering wheel of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado.

Decker, 30, of Goose Lake, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Bettendorf police report details part of the evening Voss and Decker spent together. According to officers, Voss said he drank six beers and two shots of tequila in two hours at the Treehouse Pub and Eatery, 2239 Kimberly Road, before driving.

Sometime after Voss and Decker left the treehouse, Bettendorf police were dispatched to the Sara Mini Mart, 931 State St., after a man called for help because he had knocked over his girlfriend. Voss was in the parking lot of the mini-mart and told police he was having an argument with his girlfriend and knocked her over.

According to officers, Voss said he did not know where Decker was because he was not from the area. Officers said Voss was covered in blood on his clothes, boots and hands. He was crying and shaking trying to speak. Officers also said Voss had bloodshot and watery eyes; slurred speech; unstable balance; and the smell of alcohol on his breath.

He repeatedly told officers he did not know where Decker was and repeated that she was dead.

Officers located Decker’s body and Voss’ Silverado on 13th Street, just north of Gilbert Street. Her body was on the ground behind the front passenger wheel with a lot of blood around her from an apparent head wound. Investigators say no damage was observed to the body of the Silverado and tire tracks at the scene indicated that it had been crushed by the tire.

While Voss was in custody at the Bettendorf Police Department, officers said he explained that Decker was trying to get out of the passenger compartment when he braked and ran over her.
