A law enforcement officer who listened to the 911 call of a man who had just been shot said it was horrible “to literally (hear) the life draining out of a man.”
The dying man was Raymond Campbell, and the woman who lay dying or already dead beside him in their bed was his wife, Cynthia Campbell.
The Campbells, who lived in Pickens County, were allegedly murdered by Ben Thomas Abbott of Ellijay. This Sunday, Feb. 9, will mark the third anniversary of the slayings.
