Have any of ya'll heard about this?!
After the Johnson family placed a court order to have Kendrick Johnson’s body unearthed from a cemetery and re-examined by an independent pathologist, a second autopsy indicates that the 17-year-old was actually murdered.
Johnson’s body was discovered inside a rolled-up wrestling mat in Lowndes High School’s gymnasium in January. The initial report by the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office stated that the adolescent reached for a sneaker that fell into the center of the mat. When he reached for his shoe, he became trapped in the mat, which was propped upright behind bleachers, and reportedly died from being upside down for too long.
On the same day, the state of Georgia concluded Johnson’s death accidental. Johnson’s family disproved the reports, pointing out his bloated head and face during the first autopsy.
Dr. William R. Anderson offered new findings in August, according to the Daily News. He asserts there was “hemorrhaging on the right side of Johnson’s cheek.”
Despite receiving a transcript of Anderson’s findings, Lowndes County Coroner Bill Watson stands by the original autopsy, which reads as “unexplained,” non-accidental trauma caused by asphyxia.
The late teen’s parents have forwarded a copy of the new report to the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department Of Justice.
Although they explained that there isn’t enough indication of a civil rights violation to initiate a civil rights inspection, the department said it is working with U.S. Attorney Michael Moore while his office continues to “monitor and evaluate” the case and its subsequent autopsy report.

HELLO PEOPLE. His black body is symbolic of how we as black people are seen. THEY FILLED HIS BODY WITH NEWSPAPER! Look at his face! They tried to say he only suffocated?! How when he looks like Emmet Till? If you can post about how wonderful Beyoncé is or anything else THEN SURELY you can share this story and spread awareness.
The coverup is only working because people aren’t informed. The more people know, the more pressure can be put on the town. The US Attorney and FBI are involved but it’s not enough. Where are his rallies? His songs? His poems? Why is his image not being shared across the country? Across the world? Where is the outrage?! Oh my god. Bless his soul.
Oh my f*ck. They removed brains and other organs and filled him with newspaper and school authorities are still trying to convince people it was a freak accident.
Here’s some horrifying facts:
*his body, when recovered, had all organs removed so a second autopsy couldn’t determine cause of death
*he was found rolled up in a gym mat between benches
*camera footage has been tampered with, so there is no recording of the gym or the entrances to tell who entered (but suspiciously were active just long enough to show the victim entering)
*school has been late with all requested information
this is not f*cking okay
