Trayvon Martin Shooter George Zimmerman Called Overzealous 'Soft Guy' With a 'Little Hero Complex'


As for Martin, the new evidence paints a clearer picture of the final days of his life. In the day before he was killed, he accompanied his cousin to a football game. His father later gave him a few dollars to go to the movies but he never went. The next morning, Martin and his cousin, who says they spent time together almost every weekend, went to a convenience store and that was the last they saw each other.

When the cousin was later approached by investigators about who was screaming in 911 audio recordings the night of the shooting, he said he could swear "on a stack of Bibles that it was Trayvon."

The girlfriend of Martin's father told investigators that this was the first time the teen had stayed at her Sanford home without his dad. Martin's father was attending a convention nearby. On the night of the teen's murder, Martin's father took his girlfriend of 2 ½ years to the dinner.

When they came home, there was no sign of Martin. She told investigators that it was probably the first time the teen had walked to the nearby convenience store.
