Kendrick Johnson Autopsy Reports

According to family, Kendrick Johnson had expensive braces removed. "What happened to his teeth? How did he lose those?"

GBI Autopsy - no mention of missing teeth or trauma to Kendrick's mouth.  All organs accounted for during 1st autopsy.

Second autopsy performed by William Anderson - no mention of newspaper where organs should have been.

On May 1, a judge granted the Johnsons' request to exhume their son's body for the purposes of a conducting an independent autopsy at their expense.
That autopsy, conducted June 15, found blunt force trauma to the right neck and soft tissues, "consistent with inflicted injury."
Why did it take a month to exhume Kendrick's body?
Valdosta, GA- Earlier this month, family and supporters of Kendrick Johnson said that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was ‘stonewalling’ them, refusing to release tissue and blood samples. Those samples, according to family, are needed in order to complete a second, independent autopsy done nearly 10 weeks ago.
The autopsy was done on June 15, however, this article states the family's complaints were from "earlier this month", which would have been early August.  Can no one count, including the reporter?  I'm estimating, at the most, 7 or 8 weeks since the completion of the autopsy.  Splitting hairs?  Not when these small details are constantly overlooked by reporters and readers alike.  The autopsy report does not mention needing samples as stated above... in fact, it appears (autopsy), as though Dr. Anderson had all the samples he needed.

No mention in second autopsy of newspaper in place of organs.
But when Dr. Bill Anderson, the private pathologist who conducted the second autopsy, opened up the teen’s remains, the brain, heart, lungs, liver and other viscera were missing. Every organ from the pelvis to the skull was gone."
This is not exactly what the second autopsy states, but rather that the viscera removed from the initial autopsy was not present. Not all of his organs from stem to stern, just those removed. Some were examined in-situ, which, if I understand correctly, would not be removed. The second autopsy mentions "apparent" non-accidental blunt force trauma, with "further investigation needed".

Martha Johnson: A case where William Anderson was terribly wrong about an autopsy and, as a result, three more children were killed by their mother.
