Trayvon was fatally shot dead on February 26, 2012, while he was walking to the house of his father's fiancee in Sanford, Florida, after an errand to a convenience store. George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader, said he shot the teen in self-defense. Trayvon reportedly was wearing a hoodie & carrying just a bag of Skittles.
Zimmerman has not been arrested or charged. A police report describes him as a white male; his family says he is Hispanic. There are some reports stating Zimmerman was actually not a member of community watch, some reports claim the released 911 calls were edited to help George Zimmerman

THE SCREAMING ON THE 911 CALLS
Anderson: The eyewitness have said some of them believe it was your son calling out for help, no one saw him directly doing it or could say it 100% for sure. You've heard the 911 call where you hear somebody calling out for help. Do you believe that is your son's voice?
Sybrina: Yes I do. I believe that's Trayvon Martin, that's my baby's voice. Every mother knows their child and that's his voice.
Anderson: And the fact, if that's true and he called out for help, what does that tell you?
Tracy: He was afraid for his life. He saw his death coming. He saw his death coming. The screams got more frantic. At that second that we heard the shot the screams just completely stopped. He saw his death, he was pleading for his life.
Anderson: So you're saying that if it was Zimmerman who was screaming for help that might have continued after the shot but the fact that after the shot there was no more screaming for help.
Tracy: No more screaming whatever, it went completely silent.
Anderson: When you both went outside. You saw George Zimmerman where? And where was Trevon Martin?
Mary: She was out the door first. When I came out the door I saw him basically straddling him. He had feet on either side of his body and his hands at the time I didn't know was on his back.
Anderson: Trevon was face down?
Mary: Trevon was face down. Once he got off of the body we could see that his face was down in the grass. At the time that he was holding his back I didn't know if he was trying to help him, hold the wound or…Selma had asked him several times, three times, 'Whats going on? Is everything okay? And each time he looked back but he didn't say anything until the third time he said, 'Just call the police.'
