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.

His father was a VA judge?? Most corrupt, racist bastards in America. He needs more people...

What's p****** me off and hurting my heart now is that the initial responders/investigators wanted to charge him with homicide. They were doing their jobs, they didn't believe his story. Then his dad's folks are the ones who stepped in and had all of this go away. The officers involved in this are being dragged through the mud because the powers that be wanted to protect one of their own. When you're a hard worker who does everything you're supposed to do, it p***** you off to have someone come in and undo your work to keep one of their "friends" out of trouble. Unbelievable.

This whole case is turning into a circus.. Is the law so f***** up and warped to help the "well connected" that it can't help the rest of the population?! How is it the rest of us are guilty until proven innocent but this guy full out shoots and kills a minor and all of these officials/character witnesses want to play shocked and surprised... Zimmerman just thought he was going to kill a Black person and get away with it like many have done before and sadly, if it weren't for other Black people causing an uproar, he'd never have seen the inside of a jail or face questioning. I'm through with America.. How quickly they'll throw a Black person in jail just based on suspicion alone but this loser was damn near never even questioned.. 
I wouldn't even be surprised only in America

Yes... Child Zimmerman is somewhere having plastic surgery done... He will be unrecognizable when he resurfaces...

If they don't arrest his ass the Funeral director stated he saw no cuts, bruises, etc on Trayvon's hands now Zimmermans white friend is on Nancy Grace saying that he said effing cold... first it was effing goon...

Soooooo he wanted to be a judge: what college did he go to for undergrad? What did he study? Internships? Has he taken the LSAT? What did he score? What law schools did he apply for? Which accepted him? Which did he choose? How were his grades in law school? Did he graduate? Is he practicing law now? You know u must be a lawyer BEFORE u can become a judge, right. Sooooooo, what steps has this 'altar boy' taken to 'become a judge like his dad?' Just wondering
Loan analyst to judge???? 

& Seminole State College????? 
Not FSU, UF, USF, UCF, or UM???? Looks like daddy's influence didn't help for college... 

I have too much to say. All I can say to Zimmerman and his dad, no black teen at the age of 17 talks like that. NONE. Should've watched a little more BET before you started giving Trayvon dialogue in your made up stories..

 

and Joe Oliver, it's obvious you don't know Zimmerman. Probably only met him in passing and you're the only black person he could find to prove "hey, i like black people, my best friend is black!". I'm glad MSNBC ripped u a new one. I love how you contradicted yourself all up and through that interview and I hope you at least got your bills paid because it's about to be a huge struggle for you socially from here on out.

 

To Trayvon's parents, I can only imagine the amount of sadness, grief, disgust you are going through watching the country grasp at straws to find ways to cover up your son's vile murder. Keep your head up. Justice will be served, somehow.

I'm sick of all these "Eyewitnesses" (Zimmerman's Friends) giving telephone interviews and then soon as they are asked something they don't know for sure.. How are you an eyewitness then?

PREACH!!!! "You gone die tonight" is something Klan members say..   Unarmed black people say.....'I'mma kick yo muthaf**kin azz'

Girl yes!!!!! Talking about I look a lot like my brother. Boy stop!!!! This is just extremely painful to watch... They've completely made this child into a menace...

Did y'all see GZ's brother on PiersMorgan trying to 'defend' his brother actions in the murder of  this child?? Not once did I hear him say 'I wish my brother did not follow him'.

He says he knows his brother, but does he really know him??

Exactly!!!

Love how he said his brother is such a squeaky clean person who wouldn't harm anybody.....yet has quite a few violent offenses under his belt. Don't use "squeaky clean record" when your brother keeps getting off for beating people up.
