A key witness in the Trayvon Martin shooting case has changed his account, and now the case is precarious again
The Trayvon Martin shooting case is still underway and now some latest developments have taken place which have worked against George Zimmerman. A key witness in the Trayon Marting shooting case has changed the story which he had provided earlier, and this change is not working in the favor of George Zimmerman. George Zimmerman has been charged with the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager who was shot to death. George Zimmerman said that he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense, and some of the witnesses' accounts worked in his favor. However, now, one of the witnesses has changed his story and Zimmerman is not happy about it.
A key witness, known as Witness # 6, originally told Sanford police that Zimmerman was the one calling for help. The Witness # 6 kept sticking with his account that he saw Trayvon Martin straddling Zimmerman and pinning him to the ground before Martin was shot. However, in a recent follow-up interview by a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigator, which took on the 20th of March, the witness changed his account. The Witness # 6 said that he was no longer sure who was calling for help. According to a report by msnbc.com "At first, I thought it was the person on the ground, just because, you know, me thinking rationally, if someone was on top, the person on the bottom would be yelling," he said, according to the Sentinel. "I truly can't tell who, after thinking about it, was yelling for help just because it was so dark out on that sidewalk. You can't see a mouth …"
This change of statement is not going to go in the favor of George Zimmerman as it casts a doubt on what actually happened on that day. Recently, evidence was released by George Zimmerman's prosecutors' office and it had a number of documents and reports on the Trayvon Martin shooting case.
The evidence also included a doctor's report which elaborated how George Zimmerman had sustained a number of injuries on the day he shot Trayvon Martin, pointing to the fact that Zimmerman shot in self-defense. However, the evidence also included a police report which said that the shooting was ultimately 'avoidable' by Zimmerman.
