Summary More than a year after a sheriff’s office recruit died during his first days on the job, information WSBTV uncovered led DeKalb County’s Medical Examiner to change his cause of death, state agents to conduct an independent investigation and DeKalb County’s District Attorney to consider whether current and former Sheriff’s Office employees should face criminal charges. Throughout the course of our investigation we discovered information the Medical Examiner, elected officials, law enforcement leaders and even the jail recruit’s family never knew existed.
