produced and narrated by Jenifer Lewis
(On January 11, 2013, the body of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was found upside-down and rolled up in a school gym mat. Clinical Pathologist Dr. Williams R. Anderson deemed that there was physical evidence in Johnson's lungs that showed that he did not asphyxiate and his death was likely caused by non-accidental blunt force trauma to the head and neck, and let's not forget to add that all his internal organs were removed and replaced with newspaper)
