Anonymous Email In Kendrick Johnson Case A Rumor

I truly wish that people in the media would learn that words have meaning, and use the proper words. A rumor can be fake, but to say that an email is fake is not the same thing.

On March 19, 2014, we reported on a claim of confession probed in the Kendrick Johnson death.

Through their website, the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous email dated January 27, 2014. On January 28, 2014, Chief Assistant District Attorney Bradfield Shealy issued a subpoena to Mediacom Communications Corporation to provide the subscriber information for the person submitting that email.

 
The sender did not suggest that he or she witnessed the confession. Rather, the sender claims to have been given that information by someone who purportedly is aware of the confession by one person implicated in the email.


Now it turns out that the email was submitted by a teenage girl who says it was strictly a rumor. The girl was interviewed by The Times at her home, and said the rumor weighed heavily on her conscience, causing her to send the anonymous email to the sheriff’s office two months ago. Investigators subsequently concluded that there was nothing to the confession claim.

“I heard it so many times from so many different people that it just sounded like it could be true,” said the girl.

 
The girl said she does not personally know the individuals she mentioned in her anonymous email, but that rumors persist about them at the high school, dividing the student body down the middle over those who believe Johnson died accidentally and those who do not.

She agreed to talk to The Times to set the record straight and to deflect speculation about her involvement in the Johnson case.

  2. Excellent point, Xena.

    Nothing wrong with the person having LE check out the rumor she heard. I am sure he/she just was trying to be helpful.

    • From the Times article:

      The girl said she thought her email would be helpful in solving the uncertainty surrounding Johnson’s strange death in the high school’s old gym. She said she thought it might be true given the speculation in the media, especially Ebony.com and CNN, over the circumstances of the Johnson case.

      “Now,” she added, “I know it was just hurting people that were completely innocent. There’s no way they could have anything to do with it. There’s nothing there that proves that they have anything to do with it.”

      • I hope someone tells here that she was not just hurting people. A rumor like that goes around and it has to be checked out. Leave no stone unturned. No one got hurt in the process. They were just checking, and I’m glad they did. I wish she didn’t feel bad about it. If my child were killed in some strange occurrence such as this and someone heard a rumor, I’d want it checked out too. I wonder of someone got to her. I’m not so sure there was nothing to it, but I’m skeptical that way.

            No one likes him. The 2 blogs that still allow him to post suffer him so they will have some comments rather than none.

            Even one of the blogs that he frequents has corrected him about his vile language and name-calling. The CTH doesn’t want him. He has no friends on Twitter who actually tweet to him. No one responds to his comments on blogs and he has abandoned his own blogs because no one participates on them.

            The last I checked, he has at least 2 Youtube channels and there are not 10 subscribers between the 2 of them. He stole the name of one of his Youtube channels and the concept, from another Youtube channel.

            He hasn’t posted anything on his justice for Ted Wafer facebook page since January. About 99 % of what is there does not pertain to Ted Wafer but is D.P.’s White Supremacist ideologies. He’s an embarrassment to Ted Wafer (who is charged with the murder of Renisha McBride). Wafer’s attorneys should speak out and let it be known that the opinions expressed on that FB page are not those of Ted Wafer.

            He’s obsessed with minorities, gays, and everyone who believes that our constitution applies to all U.S. citizens.

            That’s the thing. He has put out hundreds of comments demonstrating his vile nature and racial hatred. He makes spurious allegations against this blog, but has no shred of evidence to support his allegations.

            D.P. plays tit-for-tat in sovereign citizen ideology fashion. If you see him kick his dog, he’ll say you kicked your dog. When he uses the “n” word, he’ll say you’re racist.

  4. Friends poke fun at friends. D.P., you don’t like me. You are not my friend. You have harassed me with filthy, vile comments, including racial derogatory terms that you have submitted to this blog. You have no idea that by posting your harassing tweets, I’m making a record of your Twitter harassment, do you?

    This comment constitutes a cease and desist warning to you.

    By the way, had we chosen “Monarchbutterfly” for the name of this blog, you would allege that we are queens and we know how you would twist that to disparage gays, like you also do on Twitter.

    Butterflies come in all colors. They demonstrate the ideal diversity in creation. They don’t fight each other. They are peaceful, beautiful creatures. You should consider becoming the human version of one.

        Yep. He wants to humiliate black butterflies now. I hope that some day soon, he finds joy in doing something positive. He should be studying rather than harassing people on the internet.

        Yes, DP needs to stop being backward, malicious, and racist.

        I hope that some day soon, he finds joy in doing something positive.

        It is my hope that he will open his heart and put a little love in it.

        Message to DP:

        Think of your fellow man.
        Lend him a helping hand.
        Put a little love in your heart.

        You see it’s getting late.
        Oh please don’t hesitate.
        Put a little love in your heart.

        And the world will be a better place.
        And the world will be a better place
        For you and me.
        You just wait and see.
