Documents such as these, which should be public record, have been hard to come by since Kendrick Johnson’s death in January 2013. This document shows that Capt Edwards, who was not by Georgia law in a positioin to request the GBI’s assistance. The D.A. (David Miller) is typically who would make this formal request. This was one of the gaffes in the earliest moments of the investigation, since the coroner should have been called before the GBI without doubt, something the LCSO has admitted, although provided only the explanation that they feared a leak if the coroner was called. A leak? There were so many conflicting statements during this early morning period, and throughout the day.
