For this edition of the Court TV Podcast, we have another audio version of the Court TV true-crime show “Someone They Knew with Tamron Hall.” This week’s episode is entitled “Who Shot the Sheriff?”
They say politics is a dirty game, but in Dekalb County, Georgia, in late 2000, it became deadly when someone gunned down Sheriff-elect Derwin Brown in front of his home just days before he was to be sworn into office. A lifelong law enforcement officer, it would be easy to assume someone targeted him out for revenge — and that indeed proved to be the case, but it wasn’t an ex-con. It was the man Brown beat in that election to be the county sheriff.
