GoFundMe campaign set up for Georgia investigator who was diagnosed with Leukemia

A Banks County investigator, who Sheriff’s officials say can solve a case with just a phone call, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.

Investigator Dennis Elrod of the Banks County Sheriff’s Office is hospitalized and receiving treatment. Friends and family are asking for the community’s help paying for the lifesaving medical treatment Elrod needs and a GoFundMe page has been set up on Elrod’s behalf.

At publication time, the page has raised $125 of a $25,000 goal.

“Dennis is loved and known by many in the community; he has been a member of our local law enforcement community since 1987 and the Banks County Sheriff’s Office since 2002,” the GoFundMe page reads.
