Part eight in a serialization of interviews published on the 26th anniversary of the brutal murder of Donna Johnson:
Joe Buice is former sheriff of Lamar County and reemphasized the Johnson investigation in 2005.
“We felt like we had enough evidence to take the case to trial. We had a big meeting with the GBI and the folks from the district attorney’s office in December 2005. I begged and pleaded with the GBI but they fought me the whole way.”
