The Death of Kendrick Johnson: Accident or Something More Sinister?
In January of 2013, the body of Lowndes High School student Kendrick Johnson was found on campus under very mysterious circumstances. It did not take long, however, for his death to be ruled an accident. As more people began paying attention to this case and more evidence came to light, including a confession from one of Kendrick's fellow classmates, it has started to look less and less like what happened to Kendrick was simply accidental. Could the young boy have met a more sinister fate?  Petition to have Kendrick's Case Re-Opened:  https://www.change.org/p/united-states-supreme-court-justice-for-kendrick-johnson Places to Donate to the Black Lives Matter Movement:  https://nymag.com/strategist/article/where-to-donate-for-black-lives-matter.html Sources:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLQfCEHPPxKLKbrS3U3CiUXkicPCd2aaz_&v=n0pfMRlZnzk https://valdostatoday.com/news-2/local/2017/08/was-a-potential-witness-in-the-kendrick-johnson-case-silenced/ https://www.cnn.com/2014/03/19/us/kendrick-johnson-death-probe-georgia/index.html https://crimecasecollection.tumblr.com/post/180341260388/third-autopsy-reveals-foul-play TW/ Kendrick's Body: https://rollingout.com/2017/08/10/kendrick-johnson-parents-teen-gym-mat-death-forced-pay-300k/ TW/ Kendrick's Body: https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/teens-at-center-of-kendrick-johnson-investigation-deny-involvement-warning-graphic-pics.913552/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBX9ft6z67A http://valdosta.sgaonline.com/2010vdt/pdfs/KJohnson_second_autopsy.pdf TW/ Kendrick's Body: https://heavy.com/news/2013/10/kendrick-johnson-georgia-mat-death-conspiracy/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFglgQZ2cOQ

The Bizarre Murder of Judy Smith
In April of 1997, Judy Smith and her new husband Jeffrey embarked on a trip to Philadelphia. Jeffrey would be attending a work conference during the day while Judy explored the city with the two meeting up each evening for some quality time. The day after the couple arrived, Jeffrey would return to the hotel room the couple was sharing to find that Judy was not there. Her family and friends would not know her whereabouts until months later when her body would be found over 500 miles from Philadelphia in a very remote area of North Carolina. How and why did Judy end up there? Who brought her life to an end so cruelly? These are questions that the police are, to this day, still working diligently to find answers to.
