Zimmerman’s medical records, the police station surveillance video, and now the Martin autopsy report support Zimmerman’s claim of self defense and establish that Martin was the aggressor.
A leaked autopsy reportedly shows that the bullet that killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin was fired from “intermediate range,” which one forensics expert said means anywhere from one to 18 inches away.
The autopsy, conducted by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also showed that 17-year-old Martin had one small abrasion on his left ring finger below the knuckle, according to the news report. The report could back the account of George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain accused of killing Martin, who has said he fired into Martin’s chest in self-defense as the youth was straddling and pummeling him.
No jury is going to convict Zimmerman of murder based on what evidence has been “leaked” thus far. Thanks to the media feeding frenzy, there will most likely be problems when Zimmerman is acquitted.
