ATLANTA – The report of the EMT states that they discovered Kendrick Johnson “exposed from mid torso to head and arms”. This discovery of Kendrick Johnson is in direct contradiction to the report of the Sheriff’s Office that claims that Kendrick Johnson was found hanging upside down in a mat with his feet protruding out.
Contrary to the autopsy report from the GBI Crime Lab Kendrick Johnson suffered not only a “superficial abrasion to his right wrist and a finger on his left hand,” but also “a bruising noted to the right side [of the] jaw”, something that the autopsy missed. This is clearly possible evidence of an assault.
Finally, the EMT Report’s rendered treatment states that he would not move the body because it was a “considered crime scene”. However, the Sheriff stated on May 4, 2013 “after roughly four months investigating, with the autopsy in hand to show that the death was accidental, authorities could reach no other determination of death than a freak accident that was born from a “perfect storm”.
The only perfect storm is the one that Sheriff Prine and the Lowndes County Sheriff Office intended to create to cover-up the murder of Kendrick Johnson. Therefore, Morehouse NAACP led by Stephen A. Green joins with the Attorney and the Family to call on the federal government to conduct a complete and thorough investigation immediately based on the clear corruption by the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office.
We are calling on the entire Morehouse Community, students, alumni, and friends to join us by calling the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department at 202.514.4224 urging them to intervene immediately. Also, we urge you to contact your local radio and tv outlets and encourage them to share this new information.
