Walking Through Time
In the Surveillix footage, Kendrick is first seen entering C-wing near the school’s foreign language classrooms at 1:25 p.m. He is walking alone, carrying the yellow folder that investigators would later find near his body. His fall semester report card is inside. He smiles as he turns the corner near the B-wing stairs and continues to walk down the hallway in front of the guidance and administration offices. He does not stop to talk to anyone, no one is following him, and he does not appear to be following anyone.
The last time-stamped video of Kendrick Johnson shows him opening the doors to the hallway that leads to the old gym at 1:27 p.m.
The rest of Kendrick’s walk was captured by the two separate Integral surveillance servers. The videos do not contain time stamps, but the footage can be matched to image stills from the case file that were printed from the surveillance system at the school the day of the incident.
The time stamps on the still images are incorrect and the discrepancy was first noticed the day Kendrick’s body was found. Lowndes County Sheriff’s Detective Jack Priddy advised Sheriff’s Lt. Stryde Jones that Kendrick was spotted on video entering the old gym at 1:09 p.m., but the time stamp was “inaccurate,” according to the unredacted Kendrick Johnson case file,
The more reliable time stamp on the Surveillix footage places Kendrick entering the old gym at 1:28 p.m. The Integral server that captured Kendrick entering the gym is approximately 28 minutes behind the Surveillix footage.
No camera shows footage of Kendrick leaving the old gym through the rear entrance or the two doorways that lead into the hall. Kendrick’s next class was weight training in the school’s field house, but he was marked absent during fourth block on Jan. 10 in the attendance records included in the case file.
