    • Trayvon Martin case: Funeral director says victims body didnt look like hed been fightin... Page 2 of 6 Sceptical: Funeral director Richard Kurtz said Trayvon Martin showed no signs of having been in a fightRichard Kurtz told CBS News that as he prepared Martins body for burial he did not notice injuries which would suggest that he had been involved in a fight, as Zimmermanhas insisted.We could see no physical signs like there had been a scuffle, there had been a fight, Mr Kurtz said.The hands - I didnt see any knuckles, bruises or what have you. And that is something we would have covered up if it would have been there.He concluded: The story does not make sense, that he was in this type of scuffle, of fight. Footage: In this video provided to ABC News, George Zimmerman is seen being led out of a police car shortly after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin Not a scratch: George Zimmerman is seen emerging from a police vehicle with his hands cuffed behind his back as hes frisked and led away by officershttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2122575/Trayvon-Martin-case-Funeral-director-s... 5/17/2012
    • Trayvon Martin case: Funeral director says victims body didnt look like hed been fightin... Page 3 of 6 Doubt? Despite his lawyers account that Zimmerman was knocked down and suffered a broken nose in a scuffle with Martin, the video shows no injuries consistent with his descriptionTrayvons parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin told CNN’s Piers Morgan that the video footage of Zimmerman proves what they have known all along.Ms Fulton told Morgan: We just looked at the video and we were just surprised because according to the police report, he sustained injuries, but when we looked at the video, itwas obvious that there were no visible injuries. [there was no] blood on his shirt.She later added: I believe that this video is the icing on the cake.The familys lawyer, Benjamin Crumb, told Morgan that the footage proves that the Sanford Police Department conspired to cover this up.Zimmerman, who has not spoken publicly since the shooting, told police that he spotted Martin as he was patrolling his neighbourhood and called 911 to report a suspiciousperson.This guy looks like he is up to no good. He is on drugs or something, Zimmerman told the dispatcher from his sport utility vehicle.He added that the teen had his hand in his waistband and was walking around looking at homes.These a*******. They always get away, Zimmerman said on a 911 call.But Trayvon, 17, was not armed. He was returning from a convenience store with an iced tea for himself and a bag of skittles for his little brother.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2122575/Trayvon-Martin-case-Funeral-director-s... 5/17/2012
    • Trayvon Martin case: Funeral director says victims body didnt look like hed been fightin... Page 4 of 6 Dispute: A national outcry has many demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, right, in the killing of Trayvon Martin (left) Protests: The killing of Trayvon Martin has sparked numerous demonstrations across the country, like this one in front of the White House on TuesdaySTUDENT NEWSPAPER SPARKS OUTRAGE WITH RACIST CARTOONA student who drew a racist cartoon featured in a college newspaper that suggested Trayvon Martins death has been hyped up by the media has left the publication.Stephanie Eisner, cartoonist at The Daily Texan at the University of Texas, said in a statement on Thursday that she no longer worked for the newspaper following her depictionof the media attention surrounding the death of the 17-year-old boy.None of the newspapers editorial board members, who approved the cartoon, have said that they will step down.Eisners cartoon sparked outrage by misspelling the gunned down teens name and referring to Trayvon as colored.In the illustration, a woman wearing glasses sits on a chair called The Media holding a book called Treyvon Martin and the case of yellow journalism.She is seen telling a young boy: And then… the Big Bad White man killed the Handsome, sweet, innocent, colored boy!!Eisner said she wanted to criticise the medias coverage rather than Trayvon.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2122575/Trayvon-Martin-case-Funeral-director-s... 5/17/2012
    • Trayvon Martin case: Funeral director says victims body didnt look like hed been fightin... Page 5 of 6She initially told the publication: I feel the news should be unbiased. And in the retelling of this particular event, I felt that that was not the case.In her apology, she said it was in hindsight an ambiguous cartoon related to the Trayvon Martin shooting.The newspapers editorial adviser, Doug Warren, admitted the cartoon should have spelled the teens name correctly and not used the word colored. But he said the cartoonwas not inherently racist.A neighbour said there had been several break-ins in the community in the past year, including one in which burglars took a TV and laptops.A dispatcher told Zimmerman to stay in his sport utility vehicle and that an officer would be there momentarily, but Zimmerman - for unknown reasons - got out.Zimmerman told police he lost sight of the teenager and was walking back to his sport utility vehicle when he was suddenly attacked.But Trayvons girlfriend Deedee, 16, who was on the phone with Trayvon in his last moments alive, emerged Wednesday to add more contradiction to Zimmermans story.She told ABC News in a brief interview that Trayvon said he saw a strange man following him as he walked back to his fathers home.... and then Trayvon come and said the man was still behind him and I said to him, "Run!" the teen said.He and Martin fought, according to witnesses.Zimmerman said Martin punched him in the nose and slammed his head against the ground.Zimmerman’s father Robert Zimmerman echoed those remarks on Wednesday night, telling WOFL-TV his son was being beaten by Trayvon, and the teen threatened himduring the scuffle.He told the network: Trayvon Martin said something to the effect of "youre going to die now or youre going to die tonight," something to that effect.He added: ‘[Martin] continued to beat George and at some point, George pulled his pistol and did what he did’.Zimmerman told cops he acted in self-defense, and that he had yelled for help before firing the gun.Police said Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and the back of his head.But the surveillance video shows no injuries consistent with that type of trauma.Additionally, Richard Kurtz, the funeral director who handled Trayvons body, told CNN he saw no bruising on the teens knuckles.I didnt see any evdience that he had been fighting anybody, Kurtz said.In the police video, Zimmerman appears calm as his pockets are checked and he’s led to a questioning room by three officers.In an appearance on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Wednesday night, the mother of a witness in the case said that she doesnt believe the account of Zimmermans lawyer.When asked by host Al Sharpton if she believed Zimmerman acted in self-defence, Cheryl Brown answered: Not at all.The fact that he has not been arrested nor charged in the case has fuelled a widespread outcry marked by protests, accusations of racism and demands that Zimmerman betaken in. New picture: This image taken from a Twitter account that reportedly belonged to Trayvon, shows an older image of the teen - just as new reporting is casting a different light on his behaviourhttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2122575/Trayvon-Martin-case-Funeral-director-s... 5/17/2012
