UPDATE, March, 2013: The major suspect in this case has been arrested and released once again! See Background of Suspect for details.
It is going on three decades and one of the three main suspects positively identified by Houston County Sheriff's Department investigators, according to what the Sheriff’s Department of Houston County told the family of the hard-working victim, has continued to commit crimes and has racked up nine major felony convictions with a tenth charge pending in a neighboring county.
This suspect in a major Houston County murder was last convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine, receiving only a mere two year prison sentence in Houston County Superior Court, an unheard of sentence for such a serious felony offense. This suspect remains unmolested by Houston County authorities and seems to be a "pet" of Houston County law enforcement still running wild and free continuing to commit felonies in neighboring counties! With ten major felonies this murder suspect should be in prison, notwithstanding the suspected involvement in the 1984 unsolved murder case of prominent agri-businessman Dan Gunn, Jr. for which with nine prior felonies this suspect should have been forced to talk.
There has been very little mention of this case as cold cases have been and are being solved by the hundreds nationwide with new and modern crime solving science. This site seeks to ask why it seems this case has not been afforded the same attention as other local cases.
It's sadly tragic for all the hardworking mid-state citizens that knew and admired Mr. Gunn and the many current newer citizens that have never heard of the case, along with the tragedy of the family for which Gunn Road is named never seeing justice. It seems that Houston County authorities up to this point, so far, have severely botched this case. Why was the G.B.I. not called in to assist as is customary in similar cases? The victim's surviving family and Georgia citizens deserve answers to these questions and one of the purposes of this website is to gain those answers which is the role of tax funded government authorities.
This case stinks to high heaven and hopefully the following information might help reveal from whence the stench originates. Observers of this site possibly should suspend any naivety they may have regarding any perceived integrity of past or current Houston County law enforcement authorities.
