Trayvon Martin's parents, Tracy and Sybrina Fulton, will ask the U.S. Justice Department to review a local Florida prosecutor's interactions with police while investigating the teen's shooting death.
The Justice Department launched an investigation into Trayvon's death on March 19, but the family is now asking it to look for possible interference by State Attorney Norm Wolfinger's office with Sanford, Florida and Police Detective Chris Serino, the man who wanted to arrest George Zimmerman the night he shot and killed Trayvon.
According to CNN, family attorney Ben Crump and the Martin family will send a formal request to the Justice Department.
Zimmerman fatally shot an unarmed Trayvon in the chest at point blank range on Feb. 26 in The Retreat at Twin Lakes gated community in Sanford, Florida.
Zimmerman has been claiming self-defense from day one, has not been charged with a crime and is currently in hiding.
Zimmerman’s self-defense case is falling apart. With the release of the video of Zimmerman being led into the Sanford police station showing no signs of abuse, the funeral director coming forward saying that Trayvon had no signs of bruising or cuts, and now experts saying that it wasn't Zimmerman's voice on the 911, he should and will be arrested. #HoodiesUp
