Jury Hears Zimmerman’s Side Of Story
The jury heard tapes of George Zimmerman’s first accounts detailing the events leading up to the the Feb. 26 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin.
Chris Serino, a lead investigator who was one of the first officers to question Zimmerman, said that in an effort to deter Zimmerman from lying, he tried to make Zimmerman believe that the altercation between him and Martin had been recorded. NBC reported,
“I believe his words were, ‘Thank God, I was hoping somebody would videotape it,’” Serino said . . . Asked by defense lawyer Mark O’Mara what he thought of that comment, Serino said, “Either he was telling the truth or he was a complete pathological liar. One of the two.”
Serino testified that he thinks Zimmerman was telling the truth when he was being questioned.
Officer Doris Singleton, who took Zimmerman’s statement, testified that Zimmerman seemed shocked over news that Martin died as a result of the shooting.
