Zimmerman Defense Releases ‘New’ Bloody Face Photo
On Monday, George Zimmerman’s legal defense team released a higher-quality version of a bloody photo of Zimmerman’s face from the night he shot Trayvon Martin in Sanford. Trayvon Martin was only 17 years old at the time of the shooting.
The released photograph is not new, but it is a higher quality version of the image than one that was released earlier. A grainy, black-and-white version has been available for months. The new, higher resolution image was posted to the Zimmerman legal defense’s online blog.
The photo shows Zimmerman’s face bloodied and his nose swollen. In the photo, he is sitting in the back of a Sanford police car after the incident.
The defense says it intends to publish more new evidence soon.
