Was Kendrick Johnson Murdered? Family Cries Foul After Teen’s Death Ruled Accidental
Kendrick Johnson was a 17-year-old student from Valdosta, Georgia who was found dead in his high school gym. According to authorities, Johnson died after getting stuck upside down in a rolled up gym mat, where his body was found. Based on the condition of his body, his family believes he was beaten to death and have released a gruesome photo to prove something is amiss.
Surprisingly, this isn’t a new story. Johnson was found on January 11th with bruises to his face and body. He was last seen in his 3rd block classes, heading to his 4th, but Lowndes High School administration will not release the video footage detailing what might have happened to Johnson. Furthermore, the coroner admitted the Sheriff did not immediately notify him of Johnson’s body, but wouldn’t say how long the Sheriff knew he was dead before reporting it. So, was Kendrick Johnson murdered? Something certainly seems fishy. According to the Medical Examiner’s Office, no indications of injury that would have caused the death of Johnson were found.
Lastly, there is the photo released by the family of Johnson’s body. They claim he was beaten to death. Take a look at the photo and decide for yourself. For more information, visit the RIP Kendrick Johnson Facebook page.
