Appeals Judge Found Shot Dead In Wooded Area Behind Home


A Georgia appeals judge was found shot dead on Saturday in a wooded area behind his Albany home, however officials do not believe it was a homicide, according to the Associated Press (via the Washington Times)

60-year-old Judge Stephen Goss served as a Superior Court judge in Albany for approximately 20 years, after which then-Gov. Nathan Deal appointed him to serve as a judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals in August 2018. 

Goss brought “dignity and compassion to the delivery of justice all across this great state,” said Chief Justice Harold D. Melton, who noted that he was known nationally for his work on substance abuse and mental health treatment programs. 

“His legacy is as great as our sense of loss,” added Melton. “Our court and this state’s judiciary express our profound condolences to the Goss family.”

Gov. Brian Kemp offered his support to the Goss family.

“A native Georgian, trusted counsel, and man of integrity, Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Goss will be sorely missed by countless people across our state and nation,” Kemp said in a tweet. “The Kemp family asks God to give comfort to his loved ones, friends, and colleagues in this difficult time.”

In 2002, Goss founded Georgia’s first felony mental health court and substance abuse treatment program in Dougherty County. It was one of the early programs of its kind in the country, according to his online bio. The program assists those with felony probation or pending felony charges, many of whom have a long history with substance abuse or diagnosed mental illness. For the past decade, the Dougherty County program has been a designated learning site for mental health courts, one of only four in the nation. –Washington Times

Goss was previously chairman of the Council of Accountability Court Judges of Georgia, serving on multiple state and national committees focusing on criminal justice. He is survived by his wife Dee – a middle school humanities teacher, and their three children. 

At this time no foul play is suspected.

    • Yeah, HELLO!!! Judging ( no pun intended ) by what was written about him, why would he commit suicide?? So it would have to be homicide.
      They should look into any possible links to the Clintons.

  1. Where are the “Cries” for Gun Control? Something is wrong here , this person was shot ! Obviously a “Gun was involved” If it wasn’t a “Homicide” ,(Suicide wasn’t mentioned) then a Perpetrator wasn’t involved ! Be Afraid, Be very Afraid , It seems like someone has figured out how to have “Guns” act out on their own ! This must have been a special type of Gun , maybe an assault Weapon that is independent of any type of Human Interaction (Possibly “Remote” Controlled) How do you get a “Background Check” on a “Lone Gun acting out” (No humans were involved in this Crime?) Is the NRA to Blame ? Is President Trump to Blame ? Was it Arkancide ? Stay Tuned as the mystery unfolds …………………………………………


    • It must be the secret space aliens Bernie promised to tell us about if he is elected president who caused the gun to shoot the poor man.

      • David, Thats funny I started building a house and couldn’t finish or start it, because the nails were leftists and once out of the box, they ran for Canada. All they left was a picture of Nancy, Bernie and obama in a hot tub smirking. Please send the hammer, I’m behind schedule.

        • Exactly! There is nothing in this article that provides any information about a potential perpetrator or even what he died from. If it was at his own hand, he had to have a means to do it or he had terminal cancer and walked in the woods behind his house and keeled over. You’re right, something just isn’t right here.

    • Very well written. Maybe he was done by a drone. They have a better intelligence than the demonCRAPs. I’m sure one of them, acting independent of any human involvement must’ve done it. Right.

  2. Seems like a true compassionate man that backed up the programs he believed in by taking action not just words. The Democratic party should take a play out of this guys book because for 8 years under Obama and even way before that during Clinton’s terms as president they sat back and watched with glee as these presidents took a hard line on illegal immigration but now they are shedding so many tears for the children because they love them and they cried for Dr. Ford when she brought 35 year old charges against Trumps supreme court nominee but since have stopped crying for any conservative women . Fake tears by a fake party that knows no compassion only politics. I don’t know his politics but i am sure if he was a strong Democrat supporter the democrats would be blaming Trump for murder by now. Hope this guy gets rewarded for the many lives he has changed.


  4. Weird…he was shot but no foul play? Not a homicide? Not a suicide? What the heck was it then? Devine intervention with a gun? Something is way off on this one and you all better worry. This is way out there to believe what this article is trying to pull off as fact.

  5. Nome de plaus… what kind of play was this??foiled play? Fool play…? Fouled play…? Floor play…? Forget me play…? What ??? If it ever was a mystery the mystery might even clause a caper…!!!

  6. The “TRUTH IS: THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE UP AN EXCUSE AT THIS TIME.” It will most likely come out as an “ACCIDENT.” He and (someone) were taking target practice when A GUN MISFIRED.” More needs to be known regarding his “POLITICAL” life. Maybe he wasn’t LIBERAL enough and needed to be replaced or was a part of the situation regarding the last election. What we do know is “GUNS DON’T GO OFF BY THEMSELVES.”

  7. An appeals judge found dead. Sounds like another Clinton casualty. Must have been working on something that involved them. How many more murders are they going to get away with. Almost 100 casualties is no longer a coincidence

  8. I have to agree with all the statements above. A man who was so involved with mental health issues and this be called a suicide??? Doesn’t add up. I truly hope it’s investigated to tell the world and his family what REALLY happened.

  9. it’s NOT A HOMICIDE. Really. did the judge whistle, the gun came running up to him, killed him and then ran away oh psychiatrist please talk to the genius that says it’s not a homicide

  10. Found in woods behind his house, not a homicide. Three bullet holes in the head, and all different calibers with hands tied behind his back. Yep, typical suicide.

  11. I live in the area. Here’s what the Albany Times said;

    August 26, 2019

    ALBANY, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia coroner says an appeals court judge who was found dead from a gunshot over the weekend killed himself.

    Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler told a news conference that an autopsy completed Monday concluded Judge Stephen Goss died by suicide. WALB-TV reports the coroner said a gun was found beside Goss’ body but authorities found no note.

    • Eventually his autopsy will be public. But, like Epstein’s “autopsy”, can it be trusted?
      There’s no known connection (at this time) between Goss and any Clinton.
      One bullet can still have many fingers . . .

  12. I have LOST count of people who have been KILLED or just died all of a sudden with the Clinton name all over them. They must be catching up with Stalin by now!!!!

  13. My Democrat former party believe in murder, over 70 million unborn black babies have been killed and no telling how many of other color, if they believe in killing babies, they sure will not stop at killing people that disagree with them. This is well over 100 that has been associated with Hilary. Google The New Clinton Chronicles 2015 and listen to it all. You might wonder how many in DC is hooked on free dope.

  14. I heard the Democrats wanted to kill Conservative Judges a while back. Could this be true here? Those that could be considered for the Supreme Court at some point in time. They only want Liberal Judges around.

  15. I’m not surprised ! What the Heck ? Another killing ? And A Judge this time. Two Senator’s , Epstein, and now this. Democrate’s will blame President Trump. How sick. God will be your Judge and Jury.

  16. If it wasn’t a suicide nor a homicide then was it an “accidental” shooting? If so, who pulled the trigger? WOW! The press these days. They’re beyond the pale… They’re not even trying to cover their shat anymore. They simply don’t give the details and leave it at that.

    I guess I’ll have to go elsewhere to get more info.
