VALDOSTA, GA — The Valdosta-Lowndes County chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) has not spoken on the death of Kendrick Johnson in recent months. However, on Friday, October 18th, Pastor Floyd Rose broke that silence with an offer of a $10,000 reward for information.
At 10:30 a.m., Rose held a press conference at Serenity Christian Church concerning the death of Kendrick Johnson. During the conference Rose spoke of the tragedy which has befallen the Valdosta community, and the hardship the Johnson family has currently undergone. “There has been speculation that the Lowndes County Sheriff’s office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have in some way conducted a poor investigation and/or covered up facts in the case…,” said Rose,”The Valdosta-Lowndes County chapter of SCLC wants to be clear…our organization has not taken a definitive position on this case. We don’t know what happened.”
Rose states the SCLC only wants to bring closure to the Johnson family, and they are offering a ten thousand dollar reward for information leading to the arrest of any individual responsible with Kendrick Johnson’s death. Any information received by the SCLC will be forwarded to the family’s lead attorney, C.B. King, and Michael Moore, the US Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia. Attorney Moore will determine if the information is worthy of further action. The donor of the $10,000 check has asked to remain anonymous, and the reward offered will only be valid for 90 days.
The Valdosta-Lowndes County SCLC is asking anyone with information to call (229) 444-1938.
