The Courts demand Clarification related to Johnson Lawsuit

| August 14, 2015


VALDOSTA — The courts have required the plaintiffs in the Kendrick Johnson lawsuit to provide a more definitive statement related to their allegations.

The suit, which is very broad in scope, was ordered by the court to be amended, especially regarding statements made that Johnson was killed inside Lowndes High School.

The changes to the $100 million suit filed by the Johnson family now reads that the plaintiffs claim Johnson was killed in the school and that afterwards, Lowndes County Sheriff Chris Prine, Lowndes County Schools Superintendent Wes Taylor, and Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Rick Bell, conspired to cover up the murder by hiding Johnson’s body in a rolled-up gym mat at the school.

In a report from WCTV, Lowndes County Attorney Jim Elliott is quoted as stating in a written report that “(T)he amended complaint sets forth myriad false, outrageous, scurrilous and scandalous allegations of criminal conduct, based solely ‘upon information and belief’ against Sheriff Prine, his deputies, and many others.”

School System attorney Warren Turner also provided a written statement, saying “(S)even months after filing the suit and 31 months after Johnson’s accidental death, no witness has ever been identified, nor any evidence offered to support such new claims. It is irresponsible, and just plain wrong.”

  1. Dear Friends,
    I love the fact all these local figures keep spouting off about
    a lack of evidence, Most of us that have been following this case from
    the beginning realize that the core of this case is based on the fact
    that the people involved in this cover-up had 4 months to destroy all
    the evidence, including the video tapes, KJ’s clothes, the body parts
    the blood evidence on the wall and shoes, the bus logs and just about
    everything else that would have helped, The School, City, Sheriff and
    GBI have been throwing obstacles in the investigation from the beginning.
    Thanks to the help of Michael Moore we might actually at least get a
    obstruction of justice conviction somehow, Let’s just wait and see,
    Thank you, Jimmy b.

      MMMMM MMMMMM You keep on drinking that Kool-Aid Jimmy-B. Why don’t you show us all that supposed evidence and most importantly show us that M to the O to the T to the IVE….MOTIVE. I will take a sip of that fine grape Kool-Aid too if someone can show me a legitimate reason as to why all of the people and agencies(dozens of people from all races) felt they had to cover up a crime. No one will…..because there isn’t one. The only motive now is about someone getting paid.

  2. Please notify me with any followup comments, Thank you, jimmy b.

    Jimmy B. – do you really think these 3 people who have good careers, retirements, pensions, and lives to be lost would risk ALL that to KILL an innocent KID? And for what? What was the motive? Criminal investigation 101, you have to have means, motive and opportunity? They really didn’t have any of the 3 but definitely didn’t have a reason to want to kill KJ…. It’s preposterous, and a completely fabricated allegation once again made up by the Johnson family as a way to stretch out their “cause” as means of getting money. There are no facts to support this claim. Sounds to me like they have 30 days to “put up or shut up”.

    I’m so very sorry that a young man is no longer with us. I regret that his life has been lost. I am also very sorry that the Johnson family is so very distraught by their loss that they seek to destroy the lives of others. We will all pray the the Johnson family will soon find their way to appropriately mourn their loss and seek forgiveness from those they have wronged. In Peace we pray.
