As outrage over the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin continues to grip the nation, key questions remain unanswered over what happened the night of February 26 as conflicting accounts are given by witnesses and attorneys for both sides.
What is known is that Martin, wearing a hoodie, ventured out from his father's fiancee's home in Sanford, Florida, to get a snack at a nearby convenience store. As he trekked back to the home with a bag of Skittles and an Arizona iced tea, he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer. Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman has said he acted in self-defense.
A recording of a 911 call made the night of the shooting captured someone pleading for help. Zimmerman has said he was yelling for help, according to his family members and his account to authorities. Martin's relatives have said they are certain the voice heard on the 911 call is Martin's.
"From the very beginning and I still do feel that it was the young boy," the witness, who wants to remain anonymous, told CNN Friday.
Zimmerman's attorneys jumped on the witness' characterization of Martin as "the young boy."
"The pictures you've put up tonight show a 6 foot 3 boy who was 17 years old," Hal Uhrig said, pointing out that teenage boys can have voices that range from high to as low as a grown man.FULL STORY
