On the morning of August 8th, 1973, Mayor Fred Jones of Dahlonega was found dead in his car dealership on the public square. The cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. Was it suicide or murder? No one was ever charged but many nagging questions remain as to why Mayor Jones would take his own life. Fred Jones had been a prominent businessman in Dahlonega for many years and was still serving his first term as mayor when he died.
Lumpkin County native and long time Postmaster, Jimmy Anderson will offer his first hand knowledge of the events leading up to Mayor Jones’ death and theories as to what may have really happened.
