"How did this happen? It's a long and complex story... but down in its essence, the story (goes) as follows: in 1985, a white man walked into a black church and killed a deacon and the deacon's wife."

A thread from @JoshuaWSharpe on the #DennisPerry case.

"I watched @AGT in prison and I would visualize myself there. I always desired to be on a stage like this, and now I'm here."

We're rooting for you, @Archieisfree–and innocence orgs like @innocence & @InnocenceProjNO who make moments like these possible! https://t.co/MlGvIrmjQ1

Butch Kennedy, former @CamdenCountyGA chief sheriff's deputy, tried for 7 years to solve the murders. He believes Dennis Perry, the man in prison for the murders, is innocent. Kennedy is haunted by guilt and believes the case wouldn't have ended such a way if he'd solved it. https://t.co/JCdDYAN2LJ

Two more Georgia prisoners died of #COVID19 over the long weekend, bringing the total number of deaths to 18, including one staff person.

"I watched 'America's Got Talent' in prison, and I would visualize myself there. I always desired to be on a stage like this, and now I'm here."

We're rooting for you, Archie Williams, and all the innocence organizations nationwide like Innocence Project & Innocence Project New Orleans making moments like these possible!

AJC reporter Joshua Sharpe first wrote about exculpatory DNA evidence uncovered by GIP and King & Spalding in the Dennis Perry case back in April.

Now, he's diving deeper than ever into the 35-year-old double murder that left a prominent Black couple dead–and keeps an innocent man locked up for over two decades.

"It's so easy to pass by here (every three or four days), but it's not easy to pass by here without thinking about it. Or waking up at night and thinking about it."

It's been 35 years since the double murder that left a prominent Black couple dead, a community changed forever, and an innocent man wrongfully convicted.

See the story unfold in this short documentary from AJC.

It's been more than 7,400 days since #DennisPerry was locked up for a crime he did not commit.

Together with co-counsel at King & Spalding, we've filed a habeas petition, we've filed an extraordinary motion for new trial, we've even uncovered exonerating DNA evidence that points to an alternate suspect.

Now, Dennis Perry's case moves to the court of public opinion in "The Imperfect Alibi," an in-depth look into the 35-year-old double murder that left a prominent Black couple dead – and keeps an innocent man behind bars. https://www.ajc.com/alibi-story/

“There's a man serving two life sentences for the South Georgia murders, but he says he's innocent, and even some of the investigators who worked the case believe him.”

This Sunday, the AJC will uncover the most dramatic developments in a 35-year-old double murder case–for which GIP / King & Spalding client Dennis Perry has been wrongfully imprisoned over two decades–in a special 32-page feature.
