New Evidence In the Trayvon Martin Murder Case Released
In the new evidence, a friend of Martin, who spoke with him on the phone with him during the night he was killed, told state prosecutors that she heard Martin’s voice escalate in fear before she lost contact with him.
The unidentified 16-year-old said near the end of her conversation with Martin he used words like “get off, get off,” reported the Guardian.
The newly released reports also show other findings, such as that a toxicology report performed on Martin’s body found traces of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, reported CBS. The report added that earlier, Martin reportedly had earlier been suspended from high school when traces of marijuana were found in his book bag.
Another new detail disclosed was that in the 911 tapes, though Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s mother, said, as reported by the New York Times that she believes that the voice crying for help on 911 tapes was that of her son, the victim’s father, Tracy, is shown in the reports to have a different opinion, the New York Times reported.
Investigator Serino asked Martin's father after he listened to the tapes if it was his son’s voice crying for help that he was hearing.
“Mr. Martin, clearly emotionally impacted by the recording, quietly responded ‘No,’ ” the report reads, though it adds that this exchange was not itself audio recorded," reported the New York Times reported.
