Zimmerman Changes His Story

George Zimmerman

With the Trayvon Martin case finally on the move, the case continues to twist and turn. George Zimmerman's account of events leading up to the death of the 17-year-old hasn't changed in his several statements to police — in which he said he was so unnerved by the teen's behavior that he rolled up his window to avoid a confrontation. However, never was any of that mentioned while actually talking to the dispatcher.

The details revealed by the Orlando Sentinel provide new insight into what Zimmerman said happened in the earliest moments of his contact with Trayvon. One of those inconsistencies: Zimmerman told police Trayvon had his hand over Zimmerman's mouth during their fight on the night he shot Trayvon. Authorities do not believe that happened due to the 911 call where someone can be heard screaming for help. Zimmerman also told a Sanford police dispatcher that Trayvon Martin circled his vehicle on foot—another report that conflicts his earlier statement.

Zimmerman also told police, the source told the Sentinel, that while the two were on the ground, Trayvon reached for Zimmerman's gun, and the two struggled over it. According to the source, those portions of Zimmerman's account also aren't corroborated by other evidence.
