We are struggling with the loss of children over and over again due to the actions of mentally unstable monsters among us.  But, a teenager found dead recently under the most bizarre set of circumstances has yet to be explained.

Kendrick Johnson, 17, was found dead inside a wrestling mat in the gymnasium of his high school, Friday, January 15.  Johnson was a sophomore who played football at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia., and he appeared to be trapped upside down inside a rolled-up wrestling mat, according to USA Today High School Sports.

Johnson’s family is not convinced that he was not murdered even though medical reports show no foul play. His father, Kenneth Johnson said:

“He was last seen third block going to fourth block, he was seen no more,” Kenneth Johnson said. “Then again, I want to express how did my son go missing during school hours in broad daylight? We know our son was murdered while he was at Lowndes High School. We do know that.”

The full autopsy will take up to 30 days according to investigators to get the exact cause of death.  The incident is indeed bizarre and the family is certain that this is not an accident.  R.I.P. Kendrick Johnson.
