Zimmerman’s Lawyers Quit

In front of cameras and eager reporters looking to get the latest update in the Trayvon Martin case, lawyers Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig expressed their concern about client George Zimmerman. "You can stop looking [for him] in Florida," Uhrig told reporters. "Look much further away than that." That simple statement began a series of strange twists that have pundits scratching their heads. The two attorneys of avowed shooter George Zimmerman said Tuesday that they can no longer represent the neighborhood watch volunteer in the highly charged Trayvon Martin shooting case because they have lost contact with their onetime client.

The late-afternoon news conference took place in Sanford, Florida, but might as well had been a scene straight out of "The Fugitive." Both Sonner and Uhrig took turns expressing concern about Zimmerman's emotional and physical well-being, saying he has taken actions without consulting them. The most intriguing shocker of them all is that the duo who have been appearing on news networks across the country somehow do not know where George Zimmerman is. Special prosecutor Angela Corey, who is the lead investigator involved in the Martin shooting, announced that same day that she would hold a news conference about the case within 72 hours to decide whether Zimmerman's claims of self-defense are valid or not.

The new developments add a sobering twist to a case that has provoked a maelstrom of uproar within the African American community. With so many holes in this bizarre investigation, we are seriously wondering if charges will be filed.
