The State v. Dennis Perry

Thirty-three years ago, in Camden County, Georgia, a man attending a bible study at his church was gunned down in the entranceway. When his wife of 43 years tried to come to his aid, she was killed too. It was a horrific murder in a part of the country where there were hardly any murders at all, and certainly not any murders like this. Solving the case became local law enforcement’s highest priority. Listen now.

The State v. Joey Watkins

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, at the place where the Coosa and Oostanaula rivers meet to form the Etowah River, and built on seven hills, is the city of Rome, Georgia. It’s a large little town, and serves as the seat of Floyd County. And while named after the Italian capital, Rome is very much an all-American southern town. It’s the kind of place where social circles and communities are tight-knit, and most people know each other. Listen now.
