The family of a South Georgia teen are now turning to students for answers in Kendrick Johnson’s death. Johnson was found dead in a gym mat about two years ago at his Valdosta high school.

At a press conference Tuesday morning, Chevene King—the lawyer for Johnson’s family—said new information could mean there were witnesses to what led up to Johnson’s death—25 to be exact. And, he appealed to the parents of those potential witnesses.

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.
