On Saturday, April 25th, 2009 at approximately 12:25 in the afternoon, police began receiving frantic reports of multiple gun shots being fired at a local community theater in Athens, Georgia. George Zinkhan, a 57-year-old marketing professor from the University of Georgia, shot his wife and two men in front of a crowd of people, and then fled the scene in his Red Jeep…and vanished. Authorities launched an international manhunt, fearing George had plans to flee the country, placing him on America’s most wanted list.
