VALDOSTA, GA (CNN) - A judge ordered the public release of the full investigative file on the death of a Georgia teen found dead at his high school – including photographs and surveillance video.
It follows a closed door meeting Wednesday with attorneys and family members and is in response to an open records request.
Authorities say Kendrick Johnson, 17, was found on January 11, his body resting headfirst in a rolled wrestling mat.
A Georgia Bureau of Investigation autopsy found he died from positional asphyxia.
The sheriff's office determined the death was accidental and declared the case closed.
But the Johnson family hired a private pathologist to conduct a second autopsy.
That autopsy found he had a blow to his neck "consistent with inflicted injury."
So now the family is demanding a coroner's inquest, arguing that conflicting autopsy reports require a second look by authorities.
They've also hired Benjamin Crump, the high-profile attorney who represented Trayvon Martin's family.
The U.S. Justice Department said in September that it wouldn't open a civil rights investigation.
But the U.S. attorney for the district that includes Valdosta is reviewing the case and weighing whether to open his own investigation.
