New Evidence Bolsters Zimmerman’s Claims


New evidence has been discovered which adds credibility to George Zimmerman’s self-defense claim.

Zimmerman admits that he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26. Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder, but he claims he acted in self-defense.

Medical records obtained by ABC News reveal Zimmerman suffered a broken nose, two black eyes and two lacerations on the back of the head. Furthermore, the record shows that Zimmerman had a bruised upper lip and cheek. He also suffered back pain.

The prosecution will likely emphasize that Zimmerman did not suffer a concussion, he did not need hospitalization, and he declined to make follow-up appointments with either a psychologist or an ear, nose and throat doctor, although he was advised to do so.

New information has also surfaced about Martin. WFTV in Sanford, Fla., obtained autopsy results which reveal the only injuries suffered by Martin, other than the gunshot wound, were to his knuckles.

Legal analysts note that the new evidence is in favor of the defense.
