Audio interview released with case evidence gives insight into how family dealt with incident
Robert Zimmerman, Sr. was sure that the screams heard on the 911 calls, moments before Trayvon Martin was killed, were coming from his son George.
At least, that’s what Robert told investigators at the Florida State Attorney Office on March 19. George’s father gave authorities an interview more than three weeks after his son confessed to shooting 17-year-old Martin in self-defense.
Right away, Robert wanted to refute claims that his son was not a victim.
“The tapes were played for the Martin family and they identified that as their son crying for help,” Robert told investigators. “That is absolutely, positively George Zimmerman. Myself, my wife, family members and friends know that that is George Zimmerman. There is no doubt.”
In numerous interviews, Martin’s parents have spoken convincingly that the voice heard on the 911 call is coming from their son.
“I believe that's Trayvon Martin, that's my baby's voice. Every mother knows their child, and that's his voice,” Sybrina Fulton told Anderson Cooper during an appearance on his network talk show.
“I can hear the 911 tapes in my head. I can hear him yelling,” Fulton said.
