Tests Reveal NO Trayvon Martin DNA Found on Zimmerman’s GunSeptember 19th, 2012
According to the LA Times, who are reporting that; only George Zimmerman’s DNA was found on the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, according to test results revealed today.
The findings could undermine George Zimmerman’s self defense claims. Zimmerman reportedly originally told police that Martin went for the gun. The tests prove that Martin’s DNA never touched the gun’s grip, but were inconclusive as to whether it may have touched the holster.
The tests on the gun and the holster were performed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the results were in the latest batch of discovery material released by officials in the notorious murder case, which has become a national flashpoint in race relations and gun laws. Zimmerman, 28, is free on bail awaiting trial on charges of second-degree murder in the killing of Martin, who was shot to death in a confrontation at a gated community in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26.
Zimmerman has acknowledged shooting Martin, but insists he acted in self-defense in the wake of a confrontation that left him injured.
