New Evidence Contradicts George Zimmerman's Claim of a Violent Brawl with Trayvon Martin

New Evidence Contradicts George Zimmerman's Claim of a Violent Brawl with Trayvon Martin

Yet more details of George Zimmerman's account of the killing of Trayvon Martin are being called into question. Most recently, police station footage showed Zimmerman apparently free of physical harm, despite his claims that he incurred a broken nose when Martin attacked him. Now, Miami funeral director Richard Kurtz says "Trayvon Martin’s body showed no signs of a violent brawl."

When Kurtz examined Martin's body, he noted that he found "no physical signs like there had been a scuffle [or] there had been a fight. The hands — I didn't see any knuckles, bruises or what have you."

The validity of Zimmerman's account was also challenged by a recent EMS account that shows two ambulances were originally sent to the scene, one for a gunshot wound and the other presumably for Zimmerman, but that the second ambulance was called off.

This account is in keeping with Kurtz's assessment that Martin "looked perfectly normal to me when he came in and the story just does not make sense that he was in this type of scuffle or fight in anything that we could see.”
