8. Dawson candidates for sheriff say they will work child’s unsolved murder if elected

Three out of four candidates running for sheriff of Dawson County say they are willing to dedicate time and resources to solving the murder of 11-year-old Levi Frady if they are elected.

Candidates Jeff Perry, Frank Sosebee, and Tony Wooten agreed to discuss their strategies on camera. Candidate Jeff Johnson declined to be interviewed after being turned down when he asked for a off-camera interview.

It was Wednesday, Oct. 22, 1997, when Levi Frady, 11, was allegedly abducted while riding his bicycle near his Burruss Mill Road home in Forsyth County, Ga. His body was found the following day by deer hunters in the Dawson Forest Wildlife area, approximately 19 miles —  and one county away — from his home. He had been shot three times, according to news reports.

Retiring Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle has said Dawson County will always have jurisdiction in the unsolved case.

The on-camera interviews posted here are raw, uncut, and unedited.

  1. I feel I would have liked to have seen Sosebee take this on…he seemed very sincere and concerned. I wonder has he continued checking into it since. Looks like a former Dawson Detention Head (convenient) and lesser experience won out somehow. Do we know the current status of the investigation as of now; Oct. 2016?
