VALDOSTA, GA (LOWNDES COUNTY, GA SCHOOLS/CNN) –New surveillance video obtained by CNN shows a Georgia teenager the same day he was found dead inside a rolled up high school gym mat in January.
Kendrick Johnson, 17, is highlighted in the released footage and wearing a white t-shirt and dark pants walking down a school highway and into the gym at Lowndes County High School.
A judge on Wednesday ordered the footage and other documents to be released to Johnson's parents.
A state medical examiner ruled the teen suffocated after getting stuck in a gym mat where he was found. But his family believes he was murdered and has been pressing authorities to take another look.
The U.S. attorney for the middle district of Georgia is expected to make an announcement on Thursday in the case.
