Jim Piggott joins us live now - with comments from a local attorney about this new Federal involvement in the case - Jim? 3 3 'Lately it seems if you question and investigation long enough.. You will get some answers.. We've seen that with Travon Martin.. Melissa Alexander... and now federal authorities will take a look at this case in Valdosta Georgia...One local Attorney who is not involved in this case ... says it is unusual for the feds to step in 3 00-0515-2056-1'03Now that federal official say they will look into the death of Kendrick Johnson.. the U-S attorney involved says his power is limited... Michael Moore from the Middle District of Georgia says there is sufficient basis exist to warrant a formal review Michael Moore " Many people have already called to express their concerns, fears, and opinions about Mr..Johnson's death and the subsequent investigation.Now let me say that I appreciate the depth of those concerns, but at this time what we need are people with facts and knowledge of the circumstances surrounding Mr..Johnson's death to present those to us.Facts, not feelings or opinions, no matter how sincere they may be, are the basis of a legal investigation ." It's those facts local attorney Gene Nichols says many still question . for example Investigators say the teen suffocated while trying to retrieve a shoe dropped in the matt.. but the shoes were never collected as evidence and Gene Nichols time code 5:55:02 Factually speaking something very strange happened in this case and with the evidence that we've seen and the video that have been released and the blood spatter and what happened with the shoes.. I am not saying there has been some tremendous cover act I think its a good idea that somebody with a fresh set of eyes get involved with this case because the facts are so strange Nichols says the federal investigation could bring about new revaluations.. and answer many outstanding questions Gene Nichols time code 5:56:33 they have resources that the county and the state do not have that being said they are limited in what they can accomplish .What I expect to find here is If the federal government determines there was a crime that was committed you will see the state government get back involved in order to prosecute this case 3 The U-s Attorney says his objective is to discover the truth and that's what the family says they want to see happen Jim, has the local Sheriff's office in georgia responded to this new development?
