(AP) Lawyers for the parents of a south Georgia teenager found dead at school inside a rolled-up gym mat are calling on the governor to order a coroner's inquest.


The body of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was found Jan. 11, and sheriff's investigators concluded that he died in a freak accident. Johnson's parents insist someone must have killed him.


Johnson's parents and their lawyers spoke Wednesday at a "Who Killed K.J." rally held on the steps of the Georgia Capitol.


The U.S. attorney in Macon announced in October that he planned to conduct a formal review in the case.


A spokesman says Gov. Nathan Deal is waiting on the conclusions of federal authorities before determining whether there is a need for further state action.
