Trayvon Martin’s Cell Phone – How Did It Get On the Ground?
Has anyone wore a hands-free headset for their cell phone, but carried their cell phone in their hand?
When I first heard George Zimmerman’s NEN call when his tone changed and he asked the dispatcher if the cop would call him and he would tell him where he was, I concluded then that he was alerted of or knew Trayvon’s whereabouts.
When Trayvon’s phone log was released and I saw that he received a call at 7:12 p.m., my first thought was that George Zimmerman heard Trayvon talking on his cell phone and began following his voice. I am still under that impression.
Crime scene photos were subsequently released, and Trayvon’s cell phone was on the ground, the location indicated by Marker 7.
When Zimmerman told the big, fat lie about spreading Trayvon’s hands out because he thought something was in them, I anticipated that Zimmerman would say he found Trayvon’s cell phone in his hand. However, Zimmerman did not make that claim. It would not have been to his benefit because anyone planning a physical assault would not use their cell phone as a weapon. Today’s cell phones are simply not heavy enough to cause damage. If anyone did use their cell phone in an effort to cause harm, it would be in defense against their attacker.
George Zimmerman Omits Any Mention of Seeing Trayvon’s Cell Phone
I tend to pay attention to what George Zimmerman omits. In his statements and re-enactment, he omits mention that a witness took photos. Zimmerman omits mention of the key chain flashlight; the tactical flashlight; and Trayvon’s cell phone. Those things ended up on the ground and the omission of Trayvon’s cell phone is important.
According to Zimmerman’s story, after he was punched in the nose, Trayvon was ALWAYS on top of him. That eliminates the possibility that Trayvon’s cell phone could fall out of a pocket. By comparison, the bag of candy and the Arizona drink remained in Trayvon’s pockets. Let’s go further — Zimmerman said that he wiggled, or shimmied, or shrimped (different descriptions that he stated to different people), and his cell phone did not come out of his pocket.
At trial, I anticipated that prosecutors would ask Rachel Jeantel, or Sybrina, Jahvaris or Tracy, that when Trayvon wore his headset, where did he carry his phone? Did he put it in a pocket? Was there a clip for his waistband? They needed to tell the jury where Trayvon carried his cell phone when using his headset, and that it was not a matter of him taking it from where he carried it, and dropping it to the ground.
The prosecution failed to ask that question. Trial ended without anyone hearing how Trayvon’s phone ended up on the ground not far from his body and Zimmerman’s tactical flashlight.
We Witnessed George Zimmerman Destroying Evidence
On September 9, 2013, Shellie Zimmerman called the police and reported a disturbance that included George taking her iPad and tearing it apart. Shellie was using the iPad to record George while they were in the garage. Video has since been released showing Zimmerman taking the iPad apart and throwing it to the ground. The Lake Mary, Florida, police department has stated that the iPad could contain important information. It is in pieces, and they have to send it out to specialists to see whether the recording can be recovered. Effectively, George Zimmerman damaged Shellie’s iPad to destroy recorded evidence.
Considering What Rachel Jeantel Heard With What We Have Now Seen
When I watched the video of George destroying Shellie’s iPad, I thought about Rachel Jeantel’s testimony and Trayvon’s phone. I watched her trial testimony again, and listened again to her interview with Bernie de la Rionda. She was consistent, saying that she heard a “bump” and started screaming “Trayvon, Trayvon.” Jeantel then says, the phone “just cut-off.” In her recorded statement with de la Rionda, we hear what sounds like Jeantel slapping her hands together when saying, “it just cut-off.”
Since Jeantel and Trayvon had talked throughout that evening as Trayvon walked to and from the 7-Eleven, and their connections had dropped, it didn’t seem out of the ordinary to have her last call “drop.” But, was the last call dropped, or intentionally (slap) “cut-off”?
After hearing the “bump,” Jeantel concluded that it was Trayvon’s headset and that it fell. However, we know that his headset did not fall as it was still around his neck when the EMT’s arrived. The “bump” apparently disconnected the headset from the cell phone, sending Jeantel’s voice screaming “Trayvon! Trayvon!” into the air, falling on Zimmerman’s ears. Zimmerman became aware that there was a person on the other end hearing what was happening, and he didn’t want her to hear anything more.
That also makes it reasonable to believe that is how Zimmerman’s blood got on Trayvon’s sweatshirt that he wore underneath his hoodie. It got there as Zimmerman wrestled with Trayvon, feeling for, and taking his cell phone. Zimmerman already had blood on his hands. What caused it? We do not know, and prosecutors, neither the defense, offered any explanation as to why Zimmerman’s blood ended up nowhere on Trayvon’s clothing other than the bottom hem of Trayvon’s sweatshirt that he wore underneath his hoodie.
The following video is titled “Revelation on George Zimmerman’s Rage, comparing what Rachel Jeantel heard, to what we have now seen George Zimmerman do to Shellie’s iPad.
