A Georgia couple was killed in church 35 years ago, and a man sits in prison convicted of their murder. Is he the right guy? Join us for the premiere of an AJC Documentary: The Imperfect Alibi (Ryon Horne)

AJC documentary ‘The Imperfect Alibi’ premieres on Facebook, YouTube

A white man walked into a Camden County church in 1985 and fatally shot a black couple. 

Dennis Perry was convicted nearly 20 years ago for the deaths of Harold and Thelma Swain and is serving two life sentences. But he has maintained his innocence, and some people involved with the case believe him.

» The team that brought you "The Imperfect Alibi" and how it was reported

AJC reporter Joshua Sharpe began investigating the double murder last summer. 

"The Imperfect Alibi" is a reconstruction of the crime and the 18-year-long police investigation that ended with Perry's conviction. 

The AJC’s documentary on Sharpe’s research, findings and story will premiere at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 28, on Facebook and YouTube.

You will hear from the detective who was haunted by the murders, the convicted man's wife, and the son of the man whose alibi caught Sharpe’s attention. Sharpe will walk you through his investigation and what he unearthed.

Sharpe also will be on hand during the documentary to answer audience questions submitted in the comments sections.
