Editor's note: CNN is reporting investigators received an anonymous email claiming a former schoolmate confessed to killing Georgia teen Kendrick Johnson. "So far, the tip is not credible," a Lowndes County Sheriff's Office representative tells NBC News. - Lauren
On January 11, 2013, Kendrick Johnson's body was found in a rolled up wrestling mat in the gymnasium of Lowndes High School, Valdosta, Georgia, USA, where he was a student. A preliminary investigation and autopsy concluded that the death was accidental. Johnson's family had a private pathologist conduct another autopsy which concluded that Johnson died from blunt force trauma. On October 31, 2013, the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia announced that the office would open a formal review into Johnson's death. Johnson's family is dissatisfied with the pace of this review, as well.
