Kenneth Johnson

Justice for Kendrick Johnson's facebook page

A wrongful death lawsuit is the latest legal action the parents of a South Georgia teen found dead inside a gym mat have taken against the school administrators.

In January of last year, Kendrick Johnson’s body was found by classmates inside of a rolled-up mat in Lowndes County High School gym.

Sheriff’s investigators say the 17-year-old was the victim of a freak accident, but Johnson’s parents maintain that’s not the truth and they’ll get justice for their son.
