Footage depicting the final moments of Georgia high school student Kendrick Johnson has been released.

Johnson was found dead earlier this year rolled up in a mat inside Lowndes High School’s gym. His death was ruled a freak accident; however, Johnson’s parents believe foul play was at hand.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered the release of the video, which does not show how Johnson died.

An autopsy listed suffocation as the official cause of death after he fell into an upright mat reaching for a shoe, according to Black Media Scoop.

Johnson’s parents requested a coroner’s inquest into his death and are actively seeking answers. For more information about the U.S. Attorney’s investigation into Johnson’s death, please check out this article at our sister site of
