- The witness also tells investigators she could not determine the race of the person on top “until later, after the shooting,” and that after she heard the gunshot, the person who got up “was the bigger one,” and that the person “walked toward her window.” She described that person as a “Hispanic man with a short sleeve shirt one.” She added that the person “took a weird stance,” which she demonstrated by partially bending over and lacing her bladed [sic] hand on top of her forehead (as if peering in the distance.)
- The report adds that the woman tells investigators she was upset over the death after giving her statement to Investigator Chris Serino, the lead homicide investigator in the shooting. According to the report, “he attempted to comfort her by telling her that the person who was calling for help was alive. Serino told her that the alive person was ‘really beaten up and scratched.’” The report includes a diagram the woman apparently drew for investigators, showing the crime scene.
- A witness telling investigators they “never heard anything that sounded like a fist hitting another, nor did he ever hear any sounds of someone’s head or other part of the body hitting the concrete hard.”
- A witness who describes the calls for help as being not muffled. Zimmerman has claimed Martin covered his mouth with his hands during the struggle.
- A report of an investigator’s interview with Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, in which she identifies the voice calling for help on a 911 tape as belonging to her son. Zimmerman’s father has insisted it was his son calling for help on the tape. And the report includes Fulton describing Martin’s tattoos and his nicknames on Facebook.
Prosecutors also released a lengthy interview a private investigator, John Wright, conducted with the female witness who said she saw the Hispanic man “get up” after the shooting. Wright tells theGrio he was contacted by lawyers for Martin’s family after the woman contacted them on the same day Sanford police released a series of 911 calls from witnesses. Wright says the woman had information she wanted known about the killing.
“She felt like she had other information and she said the police didn’t do what they should have done,” Wright said. “That was her thing.”
The woman, who later appeared in silhouette in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, had initially been reluctant to talk to the media. So Wright said the lawyers suggested she talk to him. He took a 13-page statement from her, which prosecutors released Thursday. He never talked to her again.
