The parents of a Georgia teen whose body was found inside a rolled-up gym mat at his high school have filed a wrongful death suit against school officials.
The local sheriff ruled the death a freak accident but the parents maintain that their 17-year-old son was murdered. The lawsuit claims the school board, the school superintendent and the high school's principal failed to protect the boy. The parents claim their son was harassed and threatened and the school failed to interview anyone regarding the threats.
