Parents File $100M Suit in Gym-Mat Death of Georgia Teen

The parents of a Georgia teenager whose lifeless body was mysteriously found rolled up in a wrestling mat at his high school gymnasium two years ago, have filed a $100 million lawsuit against local, state and federal law enforcement officials and three classmates, NBC News reported. The wrongful death lawsuit of 17-year-old Kendrick Jackson names 38 defendants, including three Lowndes High School classmates it says attacked Johnson on Jan. 10, 2013. Other respondents include school officials and investigators whom the Johnson's accuse of taking part in a conspiracy to cover up what they allege was Kendrick's murder. Sheriff's investigators concluded the teenager died of asphyxiation and investigators ruled his death an accident after becoming stuck upside down in the mat. No criminal charges have been filed.
