ORLANDO - A witness we haven't heard from before paints a much different picture than we've seen so far of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.

The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.

Our sister station, FOX 35 in Orlando, has spoken to that witness.

What Sanford Police investigators have in the folder, they put together on the killing of Trayvon Martin few know about.

The file now sits in the hands of the state attorney. Now that file is just weeks away from being opened to a grand jury.

It shows more now about why police believed that night that George Zimmerman shouldn't have gone to jail.

Zimmerman called 911 and told dispatchers he was following a teen. The dispatcher told Zimmerman not to.

And from that moment to the shooting, details are few.

But one man's testimony could be key for the police.

"The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," he said.

Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.

The witness only wanted to be identified as "John," and didn't not want to be shown on camera.

His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman's claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman.

"When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point," John said.

Zimmerman says the shooting was self defense. According to information released on the Sanford city website, Zimmerman said he was going back to his SUV when he was attacked by the teen.

Sanford police say Zimmerman was bloody in his face and head, and the back of his shirt was wet and had grass stains, indicating a struggle took place before the shooting.

Not as of yet.. The other 2 options would be to flat out charge him or let him off, but I'm still trying to understand why no arrest has been made? They went as far as closing the police department in Sanford today due to people protesting

So that is that? He is off the hook?

It was just announced that the special prosecutor decided not to send case to grand jury...
Zimmerman's attorney is stating that Zimmerman has little to be worried about WTF?

They know he is not going to jail... it's a shame.

This just gets sadder & sadder...
This S*** Here Is Unreal





George Zimmerman, the man police say fatally shot Trayvon Martin, has created a website.
On his newly formed website: therealgeorgezimmerman.com. Zimmerman, 28, wrote, "I have been forced to leave my home, my school... and ultimately, my entire life." 
He alluded to false websites soliciting money for his legal defense, saying he has not received any funds.

Zimmerman also wrote that the sole purpose of the website is to ensure his supporters are receiving his full attention without any intermediaries.
But he goes on to say due to his "forced inability to maintain employment," he created a Paypal account to ensure any funds provided are used only for his living expenses and legal defense.
"He has a right to raise money, to do whatever he wants. That's up to his supporters to do what's in their heart," said Natalie Jackson, Trayvon Martin's family attorney.
Martin's family attorneys hope the website is a sign an arrest is imminent and that Zimmerman is preparing to defend himself in court.
"The problem is that George Zimmerman has not been arrested," added Jackson.
Zimmerman's move to raise money comes the same day Special Prosecutor Angela Corey announced she will not take this case to a grand jury.
"We are trying to look at that as a positive thing because we've expressed all along that there is enough evidence there to arrest the killer of Trayvon Martin," said Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump.
On the website, Zimmerman posted two pictures. One picture shows a sign reading "Justice for Zimmerman." The other picture shows graffiti stating "Long Live Zimmerman."
Zimmerman also offers quotes, including, "People have a right to their own opinions, but not to their own facts," and, "Evidence must be located, not created."
Zimmerman has said he shot Martin in self-defense.
Martin's family attorneys said their is plenty of evidence to arrest him.
Meantime, Trayvon Martin's parents plan to be in Sanford on Tuesday, the day the grand jury was initially scheduled to convene.
Instead, they will continue to pray for an immediate arrest.

Not having a grand jury doesn't mean he's in the clear, but it's still unfortunate he won't get to face judgement in a courtroom of his peers. Let them stare him down, let him see the faces of people who could have also stood their ground but have probably walked away from volatile situations.

Have y'all seen his website with the American flag waving in the background???

Yes, a co-worker showed me.

 

And the Martin family's attorney went on the record to say that George has every right to raise funds, because it's his right to have representation. I hope they cream Zimmerman in court. And I hope someone is pulling up his dad's records as judge, too.
