Unarmed teen Trayvon Martin was fatally shot last February and George Zimmerman is set to stand trial for his death, but audio experts still disagree over who was screaming on the infamous 911 call made on the night of the shooting.
Audio experts are still not in agreement over who was screaming in the background during a 911 call made from a neighbor’s home. A New Jersey expert writes in a report that the cries came from Martin while a Florida expert says both Martin and Zimmerman were screaming.
The audio experts were hired by the team prosecuting George Zimmerman on second degree murder charges.
Neighbors called 911 after hearing Martin struggling with self-appointed neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman. If audio experts could determine exactly who was screaming during the 911 call, that would shed light on Zimmerman’s claim that he was acting in self defense when he shot Trayvon Martin.
George Zimmerman is pleading not guilty and says he was fearing for his life when he shot Martin. The prosecution, however, says Zimmerman racially targeted Trayvon Martin, even refusing to take the 911 dispatcher’s advice to go home and leave Martin alone.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, has previously asked the judge to rule on whether the audio will be allowed, saying he is concerned about the impact it will have on jurors.
