    it's crazy that me might have died over nothing more than his shoe getting stuck in a gym mat!! Absolute torture for the parents!!! My heart goes out to them.

    Why was the first autopsy so poorly performed?? Someone really dropped the ball.

    I live near Valdosta and have seen how this entire tragic episode has been caustically fueled by an unrelated personal feud existing between the coroner and the sheriff. This young man's family has unknowingly been dragged into a feud they are likely unaware of and are enduring the emotional torment it has created for them.

    Hopefully a second autopsy will allow their worst fears generated by the feud to be put to rest once and for all. Wishing the Johnson family proper closure and an end to the anguish they find themselves caught up in.

    I'd love to read the details of this case, but am not at all interested in watching a video that almost certainly contains not enough details to be interesting. Guess I'll move on...

    Why does this Sheriff still have a job?

    I'm so glad they are taking a second look at this case. It seems pretty strage, given what his face looked like when he wa foud a few days later (like he'd been badly beat). If it's true, it's too bad two seeimingly 'professional' people can't put aside their issue to do their jobs effectively.

    I hope the family can find peace amongst all this foolishness!
