Rachel Jeantel was the last person to speak to Trayvon Martin before he was killed by George Zimmerman.
She is the prosecution’s key witness in the second degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, and she has easily been the most intriguing witness thus far.
Rachel holds vital information to this case, as she was on the phone with Trayvon for most of February 26, 2012, up until the moments before he was shot. She has been both emotional and hostile while on the stand, and has been bumping heads with George Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West.
