Johnson County man accused of abuse served 1 meal a day, restrained disabled children and adults, report says

According to reports from Johnson County Sheriff's Office, David Fahey restrained the children and adults.

DUBLIN, Ga. — A Dublin woman says she'd heard reports about runaways And other concerns about what was happening at David Fahey's home for disabled children and adults in Johnson County.

David Fahey is in jail, accused of abusing disabled children and adults. The GBI says his wife, Kathy Fahey, was a suspect, but died February 1.

"A couple ladies in the community told me like, 'You made a good decision. They've always been weird. There have been kids that have ran away from there,'" said Tori Rogers, owner of Middle Georgia Female Firearms Safety and Training.

Rogers said David Fahey's wife Kathy asked her in April of 2021 about gun handling lessons after one of the children attacked her.

"She was trying to get her husband's attention because he was attacking her, so she shot through a window," Rogers said.

Rogers become suspicious after Kathy asked her to come their house alone. 

She planned to bring someone with her, but Kathy didn't want her to, saying she worried how the church would view them.
