A post-murder medical report of George Zimmerman has been obtained by ABC News. The record states that he was diagnosed with a broken nose, a pair of black eyes, a minor back injury and two lacerations to the back of his head the day after he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The new medical record sides with Zimmerman's story. This report was written by Zimmerman's family physician and it also has accompanying notes by the doctor. The medical report is three pages long and it is part of other things, including stacks of documents and CDs, which have been discovered and are being analyzed by the defense and the prosecution.
The doctor wrote that George Zimmerman made an appointment with him so that he could get himself checked before resuming his work. Zimmerman worked as an insurance underwriter at that time and he wanted to return to his work as soon as possible. He told the doctor that he was suffering from back pain and pictures also showed that he had bruising on his upper lip.
The report also states that Zimmerman had been prescribed with mood medicines, Adderall and Temazepam and he had been on them for quite some time before the shooting took place.
After the shooting, which took place on the 26th of February, George Zimmerman refused to go to the hospital and instead said that it was 'imperative' that he saw his psychologist.
This discovery shows that Zimmerman was indeed beaten up. It also shows that he was on some kind of mood medications and had psychological problems.
On the night of the shooting, George Zimmerman told officials that he had shot Trayvon Martin in self defense. After more than a month of legal proceedings, he was charged with second-degree murder of that 17-year-old black boy. The prosecution maintains that Zimmerman tracked the teen and then killed him, whereas the defense says that Martin badly beat Zimmerman and killed the boy in self-defense.
George Zimmerman was charged and arrested on the 11th of April, but and was released from jail exactly after 12 days on a bail worth $150,000.
Now the FBI is investigating the case for a possible hate crime.
