New Autopsy Raises Questions in Death of Valdosta Teen

Valdosta, GA -

Was Kendrick Johnson murdered?

The 17-year-old was found dead in a rolled up wrestling mat at a high school gym in Valdosta, Georgia this past January.

His death was ruled accidental.

But his family was granted permission to exhume the body in May.

An independent autopsy report now says the Georgia high school teen died from an "unexplained, apparent non-accidental, blunt force trauma."

That assessment contradicts the original autopsy.

The attorney for the teen's family has sent the independent autopsy report to federal and state authorities for review.
