On Monday, Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie, got into a domestic dispute that resulted in him punching his father-in-law in the face, a gun threat, and a thwarted knife attack – and though it can neither be confirmed nor denied, sources suspect it might have been over money and Zimmerman’s new affair.
According to John Donnelly, a good friend of the Zimmermans and the witness who told the jury that he views George as a son, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin is actually stepping out on his wife with his ex-fiancee.
“George has been having an affair with his ex-fiancee. Shellie believes it flared back up after the acquittal.”
But it’s the shocking confession from Donnelly’s wife, Leanne Benjamin, about the man she and her husband took care of in the year leading up to the trial (buy buying him clothes and food) that suggested that George may have been the aggressor (despite his claims that he was defending himself against Shellie).
Benjamin said she’s relieved about Monday’s incident because she believes Zimmerman is a ticking time bomb.
“I’m relieved. He was a powder keg waiting to blow… I feel relieved now that he…might get some quiet time and some psychological help,” she said.
“If he had run into a stranger and got into an altercation he might have hurt someone or ended up hurt or dead himself.”
Remember, these were the same people who painted Zimmerman as a docile man who was acting in self-defense when he shot an unarmed teenager. Weird.
Meanwhile, police are reviewing the surveillance cameras at the home to see if there is any evidence that can build a case against Zimmerman. And even though Shellie doesn’t want to press charges, there’s still a slight chance Zimmerman might be reprimanded.
“George Zimmerman could, however, face charges involving violations of Florida’s domestic violence laws. The Lake Mary Police Department is currently working with the Seminole County State Attorney’s office to see if they have a strong enough case to pursue such charges…”
But don’t hold your breath. Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell doesn’t think the case is strong enough.
