'KJ' family wants school video hard drive, disagrees with inquest delay

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Kendrick Johnson’s family held a press conference today.

The family’s attorneys said they plan to appeal a Southern Circuit judge’s decision to postpone a decision on a coroner’s inquest until after U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia Michael Moore concludes his office’s federal review of the case.

Citing unfocused sections and gaps in school surveillance video, the family plans to seek the actual hard drive for the recordings taken before Kendrick Johnson, 17, was discovered dead on Jan. 11 inside of a wrestling mat in Lowndes High School’s old gym.
