VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- A federal prosecutor is seeking more surveillance videos from a gymnasium where a south Georgia teen was found dead inside a rolled-up exercise mat.

Reports say U.S. Attorney Michael Moore issued a subpoena for computer hard drives containing the original surveillance videos of the old gym at Lowndes High School in Valdosta.

WCTV (http://bit.ly/1bY8NVv ) reports a grand jury subpoena was issued Friday, and the FBI will get the videos.

Moore's office is investigating the death of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson. His family doesn't accept conclusions of local and state investigators who say the teen died accidentally after being trapped upside down in a mat in January.

Relatives claim the youth was the victim of foul play. They question the authenticity of surveillance videos released last month.
