George Zimmerman Says Trayvon Circled his SUV, Scared Him
1 year ago
Authorities don't believe Zimmerman's version of events.
The source of the information claims that Zimmerman's story hasn't changed in several statements to police since the murder on February 26.
Zimmerman reportedly was so rattled by the teenager during his 911 call that he rolled up his window to avoid a confrontation. In the call, Zimmerman claimed that the teen looked "suspicious." He never mentioned Martin was allegedly circling his SUV.
Authorities reportedly don't believe Zimmerman's allegation because on one 911 call, someone can be heard screaming for help. If it were Zimmerman, as he claims, his cries were not muffled, the source said.
The source claims the series of events as recited by Zimmerman went as follows: Zimmerman spotted Trayvon, called a non-emergency police number and began describing the teenager. While he was doing that, Trayvon came toward his vehicle and began to circle it.
Reached in Birmingham, Ala., Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said Thursday that Zimmerman’s claim that he was screaming in the 911 call and that his mouth was covered by the teen don’t add up.
“[Trayvon's father] Tracy Martin told me that that’s what [police] told him,” Crump said, of Zimmerman making those statements to police. “It’s either one or the other, it can’t be both. We have to put together this puzzle because, unfortunately, we don’t have Trayvon Martin’s version of events."
