Justice for DJ

Justice for DJ

A suicide is frantically called into 911 from a rural trailer in Flintstone, Georgia in October of 2016. 27-year old Donald “DJ” Fickey, Jr. is dead, the result of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. But as DJ’s immediate family begins piecing together the last moments of his life - they quickly realize his death was no suicide. A Private Investigator soon joins their quest for justice, and his investigation quickly reveals a tangled web of systemic negligence, bias, and a coordinated cover up among the primary witnesses. The key to cracking the case wide open remains untested and locked away in a police evidence room to this day.  A special thank you to DJ's older sister Amanda Shirley and Private Investigator Eric Echols (TFP Company, LLC) for their participation and contributions to this episode.    Investigation Expense Fundraising Accounts (Paypal):  (GoFundMe):     Justice for DJ Links:  Change.Org Petition Demanding GBI Reopen DJ’s Death Investigation  Justice for DJ Facebook Group Justice for DJ Twitter Account   Sponsor: - Visit the link for a 30-day trial and audiobook, absolutely FREE!    Visit Invisible Choir on the web:  Patreon - Invisible Choir Premium:  Website:  Facebook: Instagram: Twitter:   In-Episode Promo Fresh Hell Podcast   Written/Audio Sources:  All sources were documents/media provided by Amanda Shirley and Private Investigator Eric Echols - obtained directly from Walker County Sheriff’s Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
