The 16-year-old girl who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin in his final moments has come forward, saying that she has not been interviewed by Sanford police - despite Trayvon telling her he was being followed.
Trayvon’s 16-year-old girlfriend, who is only being identified as DeeDee, recounted the final moments of her conversation with Trayvon before the line went dead.
DeeDee told ABC News:
"When he saw the man behind him again he said this man is going to do something to him. And then he said this man is still behind him and I said run."
Phone records have shown that DeeDee called Trayvon at 7:12 p.m., five minutes before police arrived, and remained on the phone with Martin until moments before he was shot.
DeeDee said Martin turned around and asked Zimmerman why he was following him. "The man said what are you doing around here?" DeeDee recalled Zimmerman saying.
DeeDee said she heard someone pushed into the grass before the call was dropped.
Zimmerman, who had called 911, was asked by the dispatcher if he was following the teen. When Zimmerman replied that he was, the dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that." But Zimmerman pursued Trayvon anyway, leading to a confrontation which turned into the shooting shortly after.
Benjamin Crump, the Martin family attorney, said that the Sanford police had leaked damaging information about Trayvon in order to muddy the case, calling it a "conspiracy."
The Sanford police and George Zimmerman’s stories are filled with inaccuracies, especially with the newly released video of Zimmerman entering the police station for questioning, showing no visible signs of abuse. #HoodiesUp
