George Zimmerman Trayvon Martin 911 Call

SANFORD, Florida (Wed, Mar. 28) – The accidental similarity of name put an elderly Sanford couple in trouble for which they have to leave their home and forced them to take asylum in a hotel to get away from problem.

According to details; the address of an elderly lady and her husband, aging around 70 and 72 respectively, circulated via micro-blogging website ‘Twitter’ just because the name of school-cafeteria lunch lady’s son - William George Zimmerman – was quite similar to the Trayvon Martin killer, George Zimmerman.

The address which is being tweeted heavily written as: George W. Zimmerman 159 Edgewater Circle. Sanford, Florida. 32773

The senior couple has moved temporarily to a local hotel to avoid any mistreat and possible danger, told their second son Chip Humble of Longwood.

The old lady’s first son, William George Zimmerman, lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida. He has no relation whatsoever with the 28-year-old George Zimmerman who killed 17-year-old Trayvon on February 26, sparking national anger and international attention.

William Zimmerman isn't certain how his mother and stepfather's address gone on to Twitter. “I used it to register a car, get a driver’s license and vote when I was living with them for short time after finishing college.”

"This is really scary, and I'm concerned for my family," Zimmerman told the Orlando Sentinel Tuesday night. "It's scary because there are people who aren't mentally right and will take this information and run with it."
