Feds seek videos from gym where Ga. student died
By The Associated Press
VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) A federal prosecutor is seeking more surveillance videos from a gymnasium where a south Georgia teen was found dead inside a rolled-up exercise mat.
The Valdosta Daily Times reports U.S. Attorney Michael Moore issued a subpoena for computer hard drives containing the original surveillance videos of the old gym at Lowndes High School in Valdosta.
WCTV reports a grand jury subpoena was issued Friday, and the FBI will get the videos.
Moore's office is investigating the death of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson. His family doesn't accept conclusions of local and state investigators who say the teen died accidentally after being trapped upside down in a mat in January.
Relatives claim the youth was the victim of foul play. They question the authenticity of surveillance videos released last month.
