Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump appeared on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight to discuss the drove of new evidence released in the Geroge Zimmerman case, including a re-enactment by Zimmerman detailing the accounts of the night he killed Trayvon.
When asked about his reaction to the audio, video and written statements, Crump explained that in Zimmerman's written statement there was a clear contradiction to his story. As Crump points out:
"Zimmerman said on the night of February 26th he gave the police dispatcher his location and it goes completely contradictory to what we heard on that objective 911 tape when he [Zimmerman] said he's getting away and he pursued Trayvon Martin."
As for Zimmerman, a day after the shooting he passed a lie detector test saying he feared for his life when he killed Trayvon, but he could not explain under repeated grilling why the teenager would attack him without provocation.
Sanford, Fla., Homicide Detective Chris Serino told Zimmerman during the interrogation:
"The child has no record at all, no violent tendencies…This 17-year-old boy was one of those kids that would have been a success story. And I want to know — I guess everybody wants to know — what set him off? He’s not on PCP. He’s not on anything. He’s on Skittles."
Zimmerman had no answer.
Zimmerman was charged on April 11 with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon. He has pleaded not guilty and is currently sitting in the Seminole County jail in solitary confinement after his bond was revoked earlier this month. He has a bail hearing set for June 29th.
