As If the Death of 17 Year Old Kendrick Johnson Was Not Bad Enough … Organs Missing, Body Stuffed With Newspaper
The horrors continue for the parents of deceased 17 Year Old Kendrick Johnson. From CNN comes the following heinous story of what occurred during Kendrick Johnson’s autopsy following his suspicious death where when a second autopsy was performed it was discovered that the boy’s brain, heart, lungs, liver and other organs were missing. Instead the body was stuffed with newspaper. GOOD GRIEF!!!
The death of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was awful enough for his parents. Then came the doubts about investigators’ conclusion that it was an accident.
But the discovery that their son’s body and skull had been stuffed with newspaper before burial added a horrific new dimension to their anguish and further fueled their skepticism of the official findings.
“We have been let down again,” his father, Kenneth Johnson, told CNN. “When we buried Kendrick, we thought we were burying Kendrick, not half of Kendrick.”
Kendrick Johnson was found dead in a gym at Lowndes County High School in January. State medical examiners concluded that the three-sport athlete suffocated after getting stuck in a rolled-up gym mat while reaching for a sneaker.
His parents, Kenneth and Jacquelyn Johnson, never have bought that explanation. They won a court order to have their son’s body exhumed and a second autopsy performed in June.
During an autopsy, internal organs are removed and examined before being returned for burial. But when Dr. Bill Anderson, the private pathologist who conducted the second autopsy, opened up the teen’s remains, the brain, heart, lungs, liver and other viscera were missing. Every organ from the pelvis to the skull was gone.
