Valdosta High School Student Death Investigation

Posted: Updated:
Valdosta, GA -

After Valdosta high school student, Kendrick Johnson, was found dead in a rolled-up gym mat...one doctor calls it "mystifying" that prosecutor's aren't investigating what he believes was clearly a homicide.

Dr. William Anderson says the first autopsy didn't mention bruises on the right side of the teenager's jaw.

"Well, we found that one area that had been undissected, involving the right lower mandible... or jaw area and the soft tissues of the right neck area, that there was hemorrhage indicating trauma to the area.  And so what we were able to do was to diagnose the fact that there was blunt force trauma to that area."

WJBF News Channel 6 will continue to follow this investigation.
