Special Prosecutor Angela Corey will release more evidence in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case on Thursday, including a first look at what FBI agents have turned up in their civil rights investigation.
According to the Orlando Sentinel:
Nearly a dozen FBI agents interviewed several Sanford police officers, including the case's lead investigator, Chris Serino.
They also talked to Zimmerman's former girlfriend, who accused him in court paperwork of being violent; neighbor Frank Taffee; several unidentified civilian witnesses and several gun shop employees, including those who worked at the store where Zimmerman bought the gun he used to shoot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Summaries or copies of those interviews will be in the new evidence, but there'll be no official finding by the FBI or the agency overseeing the federal investigation, the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
The DOJ stepped in an began their probe after numerous outcries of Sanford police doing a shoddy, racially-biased investigation and refusing to arrest Zimmerman.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged with second-degree murder on April 11. Expected to be revealed in the new evidence:
•Email from Zimmerman and Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee.
•Cell phone records from Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin.
•The testimony of 21 new unidentified "civilian" witnesses – those not working for a government agency.
•What Central Florida gun shop owners had to say about Zimmerman's comments and behavior while buying the gun that killed Trayvon, taking
target practice and getting training for his concealed weapons permit.
•What Zimmerman told police dispatchers and officers the six times he called Sanford and Seminole County authorities, presumably reporting problems as a Neighborhood Watch volunteer, in the six months before Trayvon's shooting.
•The account of a private investigator hired by the Martin family.
•Crime scene photos, diagrams and dispatch records.
•Seminole County jail records.
•What state alcohol agents had to say about Zimmerman's 2005 arrest for resisting arrest without violence during a raid at a bar near the University of Central Florida.
