List of Witnesses, Evidence Released in George Zimmerman Case
A list of witnesses and evidence prosecutors intend to use in their case against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was released Tuesday. Sybrina Fulton thanked the county and friend Sherra McLeod talked about donating vacation hours for the mother.
Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
ABC News reported the medical records were part of evidence released Tuesday in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman, 28. He has entered a plea of not guilty and claims self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting.
Meantime, the autopsy report on Martin says that he died from a single gunshot wound to the chest, with the bullet fired from “intermediate range,” according to the Volusia County medical examiner, NBC News reported.
Natalie Jackson, an attorney for Martin’s parents, said she thought the Zimmerman medical report was leaked to aid his defense, WESH reported.
"In defending him in public like this by releasing this report, then you're painting Trayvon, who was a kid walking home from the store, as some sort of aggressive thug, which he was not," she said.
Defense attorney Mark O’Mara told WESH his office did not leak the report to make Zimmerman look better, however.
O’Mara also said he will not comment on the medical report or the state’s evidence, WESH reported.
Some of the injuries were previously reported by The Associated Press based on video of Zimmerman at a jail sally port.
Zimmerman was treated Feb. 27 at Altamonte Family Practice. Jackson questioned why he went to a family doctor there the day after the incident instead of an emergency room on the night of Feb. 26, according to WESH.
Martin's March 15 autopsy report says that his only apparent injuries were from the gunshot, as well as an abrasion on one knuckle on the fourth finger in the ring area, according to NBC News, which reviewed the document from the medical examiner on Wednesday.
