U.S. Attorney Promises Another Investigation Into Georgia Teen’s Death

There is something real fishy in Kendrick Johnson’s death. We just hope this investigation is more thorough than the last one.

According to CNN:

Nearly 10 months after their son died, the parents of Kendrick Johnson are finally getting what they’ve been asking for: another investigation into the teen’s mysterious death in the gym of Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia.

Michael Moore, the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, said Thursday that federal authorities will investigate the circumstances behind the death of Johnson, whose bloody body was found inside a rolled-up gym mat on January 11.

Johnson’s family suspects the 17-year-old was murdered and that someone has tried to cover up evidence in the case.

While warning his jurisdiction is limited as a federal prosecutor, Moore said that after lengthy review of evidence collected by authorities and the family’s own investigator that “sufficient basis exists” to warrant a formal review of the facts.

Should evidence gathered in the investigation warrant criminal or civil rights charges, he said he would recommend them.

“I will follow the facts wherever they lead. My objective is to discover the truth,” he said.

In addition to suspicions of a coverup, the family’s lawyer has also raised civil rights concerns, questioning whether officials in the predominantly white county took the investigation of an African-American teenager’s death seriously enough. Authorities say they did.

“We’re happy that a fresh pair of eyes is starting to look at Kendrick’s case,” Kendrick’s father, Kenneth Johnson, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday. “We’re just waiting on the truth to really come out.”

CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin called the announcement “a significant development for this family and this case.”"Now you have the resources of the federal government, in particular the FBI,” she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “With that type of resources directed at this investigation, there will be more answers to be found.”

What’s done in the dark will always come to light.
