A Georgia family is still seeking answers to the death of their teenage son in January. Even after increased media pressure, the surveillance videos released by authorities may have been altered.

Kendrick JohnsonIn a new CNN analysis more questions are being raised surrounding the death of Kendrick Johnson, who was found dead in a rolled up wrestling mat in his school’s gym.

The case has involved missing evidence, the movement of Johnson’s body, missing data connected to the autopsy and the family being forced to exhume the boy for a second opinion.

Watch the videos below supplied by CNN’s Victor Blackwell.

In the press release from Anderson Cooper 360:

There are new questions about video evidence in the death of Kendrick Johnson. He is the 17-year old from Georgia whose body was found inside a rolled-up wrestling mat in his high school’s gym. Authorities ruled the case an accident, but Kendrick parents have always believed their son was murdered. There are serious questions about sloppy forensic work and the poor treatment of Johnson’s remains. Doubts deepened after CNN obtained hundreds of hours of surveillance video from the school.

CNN’s Victor Blackwell has more on what this video says and what it doesn’t say about Kendrick Johnson’s death.
