CNN reports that a Lowndes County, Georgia, assistant district attorney has ordered a communications company to hand over internet records. Investigators received an anonymous email claiming an ex-schoolmate reportedly confessed to killing Kendrick Johnson.
Chief Assistant District Attorney Bradfield Shealy issued the subpoena to Mediacom Communications Corporation on January 28. They were ordered to provide the Lowndes County grand jury with subscriber information associated with the e-mail sent through the Lowndes County sheriff’s office’s website or submit the documents to the district attorney’s office or Lt. Jones before February 26.
Through a state Open Records Act, CNN now has the email and the subpoena from the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office.
The anonymous email is dated January 27th. The sender does 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.
