Forensic Expert: Trayvon Martin Was Atop Zimmerman When He Was Shot

How does he know? The separation between clothing and skin at the time of the shooting. If Trayvon were standing, or on his back, his t-shirt would be right next to his skin or actually resting on top of it.

But that's not the case in the Martin shooting, where the evidence indicates the shirt was hanging 2-4 inches away from his skin -- the distance a shirt would hang from the body were the wearer leaning over someone.

The prosecution is having another rough day. Attempting to rebut the notion that Zimmerman needed to shoot Martin were he in fear for his life, the prosecution has advanced the notion that Zimmerman had a non-lethal alternative to the gun -- a flashlight.


I imagine (but don't know) that the following is about BDLR speculating about the martial arts uses of a flashlight. Update: Actually I think the line of speculation is that Zimmerman's injuries could have been caused by something else, like him hitting a tree or something. I've joined in progress so I don't know.


Live video of the trial here. The prosecution is cross-examining the forensics expert, I think.
