WTXL-TV in Tallahassee is reporting that the body of Kendrick Johnson, the 17-year-old high school student whose body was found rolled up in a gym mat at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, GA January 11, 2013 has been exhumed for a second autopsy.
Johnson’s death was ruled “accidental” by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) after the initial autopsy. Johnson’s parents believe foul play was involved due to precarious circumstances surrounding Johnson’s death including the distorted body of the teen.
The case garnered national attention and support from the NAACP, Reverend Al Sharpton and a host of others who believe Johnson was murdered. The family attorney says a forensic pathologist will review the GBI’s findings and conduct a second autopsy. Results of the autopsy should be available in two weeks.

“Kendrick Johnson’s Death: Freak Accident or MURDER,” a must hear podcast. The parents of Kendrick Johnson along with their attorney recently did a two hour interview on internet radio show Center Stage. They revealed things about KJ’s death that had not been released to the media before now. The show covered what the crime scene really looked like, how KJ’s body was left in a warm drawer in a Valdosta County owned building for almost 3 days before being sent to Macon, GA for an autopsy, how the family was NOT allowed to see KJ’s remains for two day, how the Sheriff declared this a freak accident in 24 hours before interviewing all 3000 students and the staff who were all potential witnesses to KJ’s murder, how the family and their attorney has been denied full access to video footage from the school’s camera for the day KJ went missing, and so much more. Attached is a link to that show…
May you find the justice you deserve for your son Kendrick! May he rest in peace!
