On January 11, 2000, around 7:20pm, Isaac Dawkins ( age 21 ) was shot in the head while driving on the Freeway near Rome, Floyd County, Georgia.
Joey Watkins was a suspect, as he and Isaac had both previously dated a girl named Brianne, however after an investigation he was cleared by City police.
However, many months later Joey and his friend Mark Free were charged with the crime. Joey was convicted, but Mark was acquitted.
The case is supported by the Georgia Innocence Project, and was the subject of the second season of the Undisclosed podcast.
