Kendrick Johnson's parents speak to 11 Alive in ATL.

I'm so glad I got my family the hell out of Georgia. Although racism is everywhere! SMH..



 Initial reports said Kendrick dove into the mat to retrieve a lost shoe; he got stuck upside down and died from asphyxiation. The local sheriff's department closed the case. But a second autopsy ordered by Kendrick's parents determined he was killed by blunt force trauma to the neck. Attorney King said an EMT at the scene noticed a neck injury on the teen's body. "We've got a wealth of evidence that requires that this case be reopened," King said. 

Kenneth Johnson said he decided to continue the investigation because the first report into his son's death "just didn't fit." He said police gave him two different accounts of how they found Kendrick's body -- they initially said he got into the rolled-up mat feet first, then said the next day that he entered headfirst. Videotape from inside the gym could reveal exactly how Kendrick died. Kenneth Johnson is pleaded with the sheriff's department to release the tape.
