Colorado family gets news of CIA contractor’s release

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (AP) – The wife of the CIA contractor freed in Pakistan isn’t saying much about his release.

Rebecca Davis spoke briefly at her home in suburban Denver on Wednesday. She said she had heard the news but said she was too busy getting her young son ready for a music lesson to comment further.

Children with backpacks walked or rode scooters past the house on their way to school.

Raymond Allen Davis was jailed after shooting two Pakistani men he said tried to rob him.

Pakistani officials say he was released after the United States paid $2.34 million in “blood money” to the men’s families.

It wasn’t immediately clear when Raymond Davis would arrive in the U.S. or whether he would reunite with his family in Colorado or elsewhere.
