Months after the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin by the hands of neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, the details of the tragic phone call during which his friend hears him accosted, have been released.
The information leaked to the public detailing the phone conversation between Trayvon and an unidentified 16-year-old female friend who is said to have known Trayvon since kindergarten.
In the 22 minute long sworn interview that is said to have been recorded on April 2nd, the young lady details Trayvon describing a man who was "crazy and creepy" following him from a vehicle and later on foot.
The phone conversation is said to be one of many pieces of evidence that State Attorney Angela B. Corey released as reasoning for charging George Zimmerman with second-degree murder.
New York Times details the phone conversation below:
The girl implored Mr. Martin, 17, who said he put his sweatshirt hood up because of the rain, to run to the town house where he was staying with his father, his father’s girlfriend and her 14-year-old son.
“I could hear the wind blowing” and “he said he lost him,” said the girl, who is from Miami and who said she had known Mr. Martin since kindergarten. She has not been identified because she is a minor and a witness in the case.
“He was breathing hard,” she said, and “his voice kind of changed. I know he was scared. His voice was getting kind of low.”
The girl, who talked with Mr. Martin several times that evening, told the investigator that she then heard Mr. Martin ask, “Why are you following me for?” She heard the other man ask, “What are you doing around here?” Earlier, Mr. Martin had temporarily sought cover from the rain by one of the buildings.
After calling out “Trayvon” several times over the phone, and getting no response, she heard somebody bump Mr. Martin.
Subsequently she heard him utter what sounded like, “Get off, get off.” Then the call ended.
