Accused killer connected to rapes

May 26, 2004

The DNA of an accused killer is helping crack two rape cases in several south Georgia counties.

You may remember, Sammy Lee Brown. Brown was accidentally let out of Lee County Jail in September of last year.

A few weeks later, he was charged with killing Sonya-Anna Thomas of Albany.

Now, he's accused of raping a teenager in Mitchell County and an elderly woman in Ware County.

The rapes happened a year before the Albany murder.

He's being held in Central State Prison in Macon.
