I found more raw documents in the case. This link contains police reports, witness statements, ballistics, toxicology, and DNA results.
A few highlights:
- THC 1.5 ng/mL
- THC-COOH (Carboxy) 7.3 ng/mL
Trayvon was wearing
- One light grey Nike sweatshirt
- One dark grey Fruit of the Loom hooded sweatshirt
- “Each sweatshirt displays a hole located in the upper left chest area. The areas around these holes were microscopically examined and chemically processed for the presence of gunshot residues Both holes display residues and physical effects consistent with a contact shot.”
Like I mentioned in the previous post, Lawrence Kobilinsky said the Medical Examiner’s autopsy, which says “intermediate”, 1 to 18 inches would trump the FDLE ballistics report above. But in a way they are both saying the same thing, one saying “contact” the other saying as close as 1 inch. (Even though he whipped out a measuring stick to indicate just how “far” 18 inches could be…..) Then they showed a diagram showing them both standing up with Zimmerman pointing the gun to further muddy the waters, even though by all accounts they were both on the ground, with one witness saying Martin was on top, straddling Zman and hitting him “MMA.”
The report of “bloody knuckles,” though, is not right. There was an abrasion on Trayvon’s left ring finger 1/4 x 1/8 inch and doesn’t qualify as bloody knuckles. (I heard somebody say it was 1/4 x 8 inches. Honestly, they just get on and blabber on and I don’t think some of these “experts” have even read the reports.) The illustrative diagram also clearly shows that it is not very big.
The media is/are so shameless in their deceptions.
They don’t want to let go of their narrative. And some accounts are clinging to the “it could have been avoided if Zimmerman had not gotten out of the truck.” Well, of course, it could have, but it could have been avoided if he had not gotten into the truck in the first place, if he had not gotten up that morning, and if Trayvon had stayed in his apartment and not gone to the store. That might sound good on tv but it won’t stand up in court.
They report said it could not be determined whose voice it was yelling for help.
There was blood, his own blood, on Zman’s shirt, I believe it was bout 16 stains that tested positive for blood.
A lot still remains to be cleared up.
P. S.: Something just occurred to me. I doubt these documents have addresses, but I am wondering if Trayvon Martin actually lived in this community. It has been assumed or indicated that he did, but he was shot on the 26th but did not have any identification on him. It was the 28th before his father identified him. If there is a person killed on the grounds of your community and there’s police, et cetera, there for hours if not days investigating and questioning witnesses, you would think his father would have known right away it was his son. Just a thought…..It would be relevant whether he lived there or not.
