Trayvon Martin shooting death — initial police reports
Note that Zimmerman’s gun “was placed into evidence,” not returned to him as so many rumors had it.
Note that Trayvon Martin’s weight is listed as 160 pounds, not the 140 pounds that you read all over, as in this lead paragraph from a Daily Beast story today. His height is listed as 6 feet; George Zimmerman is listed at 5 feet 9 inches, but no weight is given.
Note the notation that the scene was secured with crime scene tape, and compare that to Jesse Jackson’s complaint, “They didn’t even bother to put yellow tape around the murder scene when he died, That’s how much the police did to find out what happened to this young boy.”
A transcript of Zimmerman’s first 911 call is here. CNN’s exhaustive effort to determine whether Zimmerman used the word “coon” in an audible sigh during that call is here. The latest story on Zimmerman’s account from the Orlando Sentinel is here.
