A third autopsy may start the finding of truth in the case of Kendrick Johnson, the Georgia teenager whose body was found rolled up in a gym mat at his high school back in 2013. After Kendrick’s body was found upside down in a vertically stored gym mat at Lowndes High School in January 2013, a state autopsy was conducted and officials ruled his death accidental. Then a federal review of the case ended in 2016 when the Department of Justice announced it had not found “sufficient evidence to support federal criminal charges.”
Johnson’s family have strong belief’s that the 17-year-old was murdered, leading them to hired their own private forensic consultant, Dr. William Anderson. Dr. Anderson’s autopsy found Johnson’s death was caused by blunt force trauma to his right neck and right thorax, which is the body cavity between the neck and abdomen.
Over the years, the family has filed many lawsuits against a number of defendants but all were dropped. With their new found information, justice could soon come to the Johnson family.
