Private experts commissioned by media outlets – including the The Orlando Sentinel – have found that a voice heard screaming, in 911 audio from the night Trayvon Martin was killed, does not belong to George Zimmerman. This information contradicts Zimmerman’s claim that an attack from Trayvon Martin caused him to shoot the teenager in his chest. The audio from a 911 call, made by a woman who heard the incident outside her home. In it, a voice can be heard screaming. She said for help. The screaming stops when a lone gunshot sounds. The Huffington Post reports:
Before George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin on February 26, a 911 call recorded the voice of someone screaming. Whether that person was Martin or Zimmerman — who police say claimed he was attacked by Martin before the fatal incident — has been an open question since the calls were released by the Sanford, Florida police department. (WARNING: Above audio is disturbing.)
The Orlando Sentinel consulted two voice experts to try to settle the debate, and both came to the same conclusion: The cries could not have come from George Zimmerman.
Another analyst came to a similar conclusion using different technology.
The voice analysis is the latest piece of information to cast doubt on the narrative, advanced by Zimmerman and his family, that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer was attacked by 17-year-old Travyon Martin.
