The Bloody Sands Of Sigma Chi: Who Killed Gregory Johnson Jr?

Sigma Chi is one of the largest Greek-Letter social fraternities in North America with more than 240 active chapters in the United States and Canada and more than 300,000 initiates. Sigma Chi was founded on June 28, 1855 at Miami University in Oxford Ohio. According to the fraternity’s constitution, “the purpose of the fraternity shall be to cultivate and maintain the high ideals of friendship, justice, and learning upon which Sigma Chi was founded.” The largely white dominated membership host a bolstering list of prominent fraternity brothers ranges from members of Congress, entertainers, and scholars alike, but there is the memory of a black man name Gregory Johnson Jr. who mysteriously died in a Sigma Chi frat house on the campus of San Jose State University in 2008 that continues to haunt the otherwise unblemished Greek social group. The official reports surrounding the death of Gregory Johnson claims that the California native, who had no history of social or psychological issues committed suicide by hanging himself for no apparent reason.  

Denise Johnson who is Gregory’s mother, has been on a crusade for nearly 6 years in an effort to find the truth and what happened to her son that fateful day. The mother has even taken her fight for answers to the halls of the highest realm of justice in our land, only to have U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s office denied her access to investigative reports pertaining to Gregory’s death investigation, based strangely on the grounds that the documents were a matter of national security. Why the death of a black college kid in the basement of a frat house would be a compromise to the security of the United States of America is not only puzzling, but suspect to many following her son’s story.

The People’s Champion’s preliminary investigation into the Gregory Johnson Jr. death at San Jose State has found some of the usual components which normally exist when a black man is allegedly discovered hanging in this country. Gregory’s case isn’t unique related to the manner in which police agencies investigate death of black men by hanging. Although police reports indicate that there was in fact an investigation into his death, the reports appear to only highlight their pursuit of sufficient evidence to support that he had committed suicide. The questioning of his college professors and others that knew him focused largely around his behavior and any possible changes in his character leading up to the day he died.

Members of the Sigma Chi fraternity were questioned regarding his social interaction with the group’s members, all of which revealed no conflicts with members of the social group or any other despondent behavior at all. However, witness statements appear to be inconsistent with information that his family provided to police investigators, and the story provided to police by the fraternity brother who found Gregory Johnson hanging in the basement of the frat house was just simply too convenient. the reports indicate that he was found hanging, and conveniently had another fraternity brother on the phone while Gregory’s lifeless body was  found. The witness statement from the person on the phone states that he heard what appeared to be a cell phone dropped, screams for someone to call 911, and that Gregory had attempted to hang himself.

One police report revealed an inconsistency in that statement while another report describes Gregory as having been discovered deceased by his frat brother. The reports indicate that his body was taken down and placed in a chair, and that an orange colored extension cord tied in a noose was discovered just a few feet away. The fact that no one other than the Sigma Chi member who allegedly found Gregory’s body actually saw him hanging, should have made police more hard pressed to conduct a complete and thorough investigation into the crime scene. In fact, the reports are void of detailed and descriptive indications pointing to a timeline of where people actually were upon his discovery. The reports fail to disclose these details and other pertinent forensic evidence. For instance, there are no reports indicated that police investigators conducted finger printing of DNA testing on the extension cord to determine if Gregory Johnson had in fact touched it.

If no police official or any other person actually witnessed a body hanging, then such forensic evidence is crucial to measure the credibility of the account provided by the eyewitness who viewed the body hanging. Barring my suggestion related to this particular and rudimentary investigative fact finding measure, the cops simply took the Sigma Chi frat brothers story on it’s face as the gospel. The extended time the coroner’s office took to release his body to the family also raises some serious questions regarding the integrity of the investigation into Gregory Johnson’s death. The Coroner’s report indicates a 16 plus inch abrasion on Gregory’s neck, but photos taken by Denise Johnson of her son after she obtained custody of his body do not show marks or contusions of any kind. I suspect as rigor mortis settles into the body, soft tissue begins to harden, and the flesh begins to discolor, but the image below clearly illustrates that no ligature marks our abrasions existed around his neck.

The body of Gregory Johnson also had it’s neck broken. Even if Gregory had committed suicide as police and the coroner have suggested, the crime scene doesn’t support a scenario where his body would have adjusted itself to create enough pressure to break his neck while in a hanging position. Also, how could the coroner have possibly ruled the cause of death as asphyxiation when the neck had been racked? Bottom line, there is some fishy shit related to this man’s death. I’ll have my team on this case investigating who was there, and why the cops never conducted a more thorough and complete investigation into the death of Gregory Johnson Jr. Mean while, read the autopsy and police reports for yourselves.  http://justiceforgregory.com/coverup.html
