    Case 26 - The Death of Gregory Johnson Jr. ft. Denise Johnson PART 1

    Case 26 - The Death of Gregory Johnson Jr. ft. Denise Johnson PART 1

    https://whokilledgregoryjohnsonjr.com/

    On November 22, 2008, Gregory Johnson, Jr. was reportedly found dead in a Sigma Chi fraternity house near San Jose State University. Members of the fraternity claimed to have found his body in the basement, hanging in a sitting position with his legs in front of him and a heavy-duty extension cord tied around his neck. His death was ruled a suicide, despite the fact that it was investigated by the FBI as a potential hate crime. When Gregory’s mother, Denise Johnson, requested the results of the investigation under the Freedom Of Information Act, her request was denied. The investigation results were allegedly withheld due to “matters of national security.”

    To this day, Denise is still searching for answers regarding the death of her son. On February 18, 2015, Denise and Gregory Johnson, Sr. filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against San Jose State University, Sigma Chi Fraternity, and the San Jose State University Police Department. This lawsuit was filed pro-per, after Denise Johnson spent years looking for an attorney to represent her family. The lawsuit was thrown out a few weeks after the initial hearing, and lacking the thousands of dollars it would take to pay for an attorney to appeal the case, Denise Johnson and Gregory Johnson, Sr. have been left with no choice but to become their son’s voice.

    To this day, they continue to speak their truth and remind the world that they STILL have not received a fair, transparent investigation into the reason why their son — an African-American college student and ordained minister — was found dead, hanging in the basement of a white fraternity house, with signs of foul play.

Case 26

I have to tell you first, I love your delivery. Your episodes are done so well. Not too much side conversation and banter/joking. What brought me to leave this comment though, is Case 26. It literally brought me to tears. Please keep us posted about this situation if ever you find anything more. I know this mother will never stop fighting. This is just heartbreaking.

Binging!!!

Thank you for doing a podcast on true crime with respect for victims and their families. You’re doing incredible work with this show and doing it so well. Thank you for shedding light on lesser known cases that should have received more attention!!
