Kendrick Johnson (Facebook)
(AURN) -- As a federal grand jury looks into the mysterious 2013 death of Georgia teen Kendrick Johnson, subpoenas were issued to Johnson's former schoolmates and their parents.
Among those seen entering the federal courthouse in Macon on Thursday were current students at Lowndes High School and current and former students at Valdosta High School, both located in Lowndes County.
Federal officials launched an investigation 4 months ago amid controversy surrounding the initial investigaton. Johnson's body was found in a rolled-up mat in the Lowndes High School gymnasium on January 11, 2013. The death was ruled accidental by the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office which said that Johnson climbed into the center of the gym mat to reach for a shoe and got stuck.
State officials later concurred that Johnson's death was accidental and listed his cause of death as "positional asphyxia," or suffocation by his own body weight.
Johnson's parents believe their son was murdered.
