    I brought over most of the posts from the last page. I didn't want to copy them because they would come in out of order and mess up the 1st post LOL.

If he DID try to get his shoes, he would have gotten his friend Matteo to go with him so if he got stuck Matteo could get help. Btw, I did not offer the stuck scenario. I just said what would you do about your shoes? He compared it to riding out into the desert on an ATV alone :::shrug::: On the other hand, he had no doubt that a substantial number of his friends would not hesitate to go head first into the mat to get THEIR shoes. He's just not as [perjorative] as they are lol.

    When I asked him what made him think he might get stuck, he said he's learned from stupid chit he's done before that when he thinks something's a great idea, it's probably not

I also just don't believe that a kid would climb into a mat. I think he would pick it up to get his shoes. Too obvious. Also size 19 shoulders and 14 inch diameter of the mat? We see babies get hung up easier than that and have to have Cesarean sections. Something's wrong here.

    The blood at the sneaker and on his arms and chest really bother me. But I don't know if they could trace a path from where it originated and also if still moist, then there would be a second pattern after movement of the body. My guess is that the blood had dried.

    The hole is 14 inches (approx.) and some here are saying his shoulders were 19 inches. I'm 5'5" and my shoulders are wider than 14 inches.

    The second autopsy found blunt force trauma that that the first autopsy missed.

    His body was filled with newspaper instead of them doing the normal practice of putting the organs in a plastic bag and then back into the body. (see one of my previous posts for that link)

    It seems the PD rushed to judgment on this. I believe it was only two hours before they ruled it an accident.

    The PD contaminated the crime scene by not wearing proper attire around the area.

    There were items left at the scene that were never bagged and tagged.

    There are blood streaks on the wall that they say were there for a long time and the blood didn't match Kendricks, yet they never tried to find out who's blood it was. It also appears they never discussed with the janitor how long they'd been there.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Here's a good summary.

    If you read page 8 of the pdf, it concerns officers questioning a boy who had posted some questionable remarks about KJ after the body was found. However, it appears to have just been the usual teenaged stupidity.

    But I think this may be where all the rumors of bullying came from....

As a result, tighter restrictions on their manufacture (thank goodness).

    I would agree there were vague, cloudy and hazy issues in this investigation. The blood issue is one. The fingernails is another. As far as the organs go, I think that is extremely odd and can't figure out why they would be missing. They couldn't be used for transplant because too much time had elapsed since KJ died, so why were they mishandled?

    Even if KJ's death was an accident, I think the other questions should be answered. There seem to be some rather odd practices happening here that need further explanation.

    the valdosta narrative report istates that at 7:00 pm on Jan 10 2012
    the color guard teacher M let someone whom she thought was a student into the Old Gym 5'10 165 lbs short hair, glasses, and a book bag. She left the premises at 7:45 pm


    That makes 7:45 pm - 8:15 am... when noone was in the old gym. except KJ of course and that ....."kid"
    unfortunately due to "technical difficulties" the surveillance videos are useless. What sort of tech. difficulties could there be? IMOO MANY -1) the findings could be difficult for many other people than the victim, or 2)someone could have disabled the cameras ( think the celis' house) in either case the same narrative report states 2 videos were turned over as part of the case or part of coverup.

    But, all reports say the cameras were working perfectly and showed him walking into the Old Gym at 1:09 pm and not coming out. So when and which cameras were disabled? Did they see other kids go out...and not him. umm they certainly should have shown teachers and proper supervision of minors during school hours.

    as a teacher and as a mom who has put 6kids through school and 4 year colleges This whole thing is very hinky.

    OMG the students who were interviewed sound hinky to me too. rich stuff there! a lot...really if you read closely.

    Why are they saying they saw him when they didn't? and he was fine?

    He obviously was also absent in his last period class and basketball practice too? Did they call home?
    His worried parents already found him to be missing...at night and so concerned were at school the very next morning immediately.

    Wow who else wasn't doing their job at that school? besides the unsupervised gym and the color corps teacher who lets anyone in the gym.
    The gym mats were stored vertically?and horizantally.
    June 11. early am...gym class :students all over the place- sitting on bleachers here and lying on gym mats over there( dangerous) and coaches blahblahblah...during class time?

    blood/ bodily fluids on the wall ewww( there are lots of rules about who cleans that up) who had that injury?
    and by 8-11;00 am 1/11 blood on towels ( obviously not sanitary napkins) in girls bathroom across from old gym.
    who had that injury?
    Where are those accident reports anyway?

    I keep thinking of something i think someone said around here recently - or Chief Kolar on Tricia's True Crime radio show. " At every crime scene, something is taken away, and something is left behind"

    I truly feel this is a crime scene and not an accident.


    Justice for Kendrick.
    If i don't get back to packing for this move while my hubby paints our new place I may go missing soon.

    Interesting. It appears that the day KJ was found, his sister and some others assaulted the kid they thought was responsible for KJ's death. (Page 47 of the Incident Report)

    That's a new wrinkle.

    Page 29 of the Incident Report - they waited a month (Feb. 13, 2013) to send the DNA swabs off. Why did they wait so long?

    The GBI forensic report was 5700 pages? (Page 28 of the Incident Report) And people are trying to claim that KJ's death was ignored?

    I noticed that, too, and had to stop and think about whether it was a typo. I don't know how long GBI reports typically are, but to me it almost seems excessive for almost ANY investigation.

    I know! I was wondering if it's closer to 570 pages. But then it also says that the original CD was placed in evidence due to the amount of data. It sure sounds like they didn't skimp on the forensics. JMO.

    There are about 2000 pages in a bankers box, so nearly 3 boxes worth of forensic report.

    Professional investigators deemed the small bit of blood on the wall to be too old to be part of KJ's death. It was tested and found not to be his. No blood trail or blood anywhere else but inside the mat and on the floor once the mat was turned over. I'm sure if they had a suspect they would do DNA testing, as may have happened in February, but nothing came of it. Bottom line, testing was done.

    His fingernails were noted short (or clipped), in the autopsy report by GBI. I'd have to look, but I don't recall Anderson mentioning the fingernails missing. In fact, there was no mention of newspaper being in the body cavity of KJ's corpse on Anderson's 2nd autopsy report. I don't believe the body was filled with newspaper, I think that's bull (JMO), I think it is completely made up and they get by with it because no one challenges them. The funeral director addressed the issue by saying he received the body without the organs and the GBI, who autopsied the body, examined/weighed, and input data on all the organs. GBI said they were in the body when it was sent to the funeral home. So, 'who to believe' is all we have without photos of the body cavity filled with "sales ads" and "funny papers", as was said by Victor Blackwell on CNN. It is pretty much a given no photos will be forthcoming, and they know it.

    Anderson performed the autopsy and never noted anything unusual or out of place that would have hindered his findings. He had the slides he needed from tests done on the organs in the initial autopsy, which is pretty standard in subsequent autopsies for obvious reasons. Anderson's autopsy report was started in June and completed in July - newspaper in the body/missing organs not "breaking news" until reported in mid October. Right.

    Even if KJ's death was an accident, I think the other questions should be answered. There seem to be some rather odd practices happening here that need further explanation.

    IMO, a more troubling practice is people still taking as fact everything the agenda driven, main stream media has to say. This bit of information from Leigh Touchton from SLC/NAACP, is two months old and came out in the form of an email she wrote to a famous Civil Right's leader, but no one talked about it because the almighty MSM hadn't picked it up. Still haven't, for the most part. JMO

    You left out the part where he walked up the ramp to the new gym and she didn't see him again. IOW, he didn't stay in the gym.

    I read this as they had technical difficulties making copies on the first day, but were eventually able to get them.

    <<His fingernails were noted short (or clipped), in the autopsy report by GBI. I'd have to look, but I don't recall Anderson mentioning the fingernails missing.>> snipped by me for space

    The reports do say he has injuries and blood on his hands and knuckles.
    And his parents made a big deal about his nails and their appearance apparently Kj like his dad kept his nails rather long. When they identified his body it was one of their first concerns re. Foul play. The video was in the MSM

    Also, thinking as I read the report. The two girls saw the feet and then called another person up who called another person to see. Possibly one of the first knocked the shoes down accidentally, or even on purpose to see if he would move. JMO
