Death ruled homicide

October 7, 2003

Thomasville -  James Graham Jr., was found lying in the yard of his home around 7:00 PM on Thursday. He had been shot once in the forehead.

Investigators at the Sheriff's department say the call originally came in as a suicide attempt, but once they arrived at the scene they found evidence that led them to believe otherwise.  A forensic pathologist at the crime lab in Moultrie confirmed the death was a homicide.

Dorothy Graham doesn't understand why anyone would want to kill her 52-year-old brother. "He was just loving, joyful," says Graham. "Make you laugh, have fun with you. He just was a person that I can't understand why someone would hurt him like that."

Graham was taken to Archbold memorial hospital on Thursday, but died over the weekend.
