Black leaders call for full investigation to find Kendrick Johnson’s killer


Several prominent leaders within the black community led a rally at the Georgia state capitol to demand an investigation on the death of Kendrick Johnson. On Dec. 11, MSNBC’s Goldie Taylor, Jeff Johnson and Martin Luther King III were on hand to speak on the severity of the case.

Johnson was found dead and rolled up in a wrestling mat at Lowndes High School. The organs were removed from his body and he was stuffed with newspaper. His death was ruled an accident, but his parents believe that he was murdered.

In Oct., U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, Michael Moore, told Johnson’s family that an investigation would begin, but there hasn’t been new information provided about the investigation.

Taylor, Johnson and King III demanded that Gov. Nathan Deal take action. Gov. Deal has yet to speak on the case.
