No Trayvon Martin DNA on Zimmerman's gun grip

DNA tests exclude Martin from gun grip in Zimmerman case

Another round of evidence was released Wednesday in the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman.

The evidence includes a few diagrams from witnesses the defense noticed that were not included in the original evidence.

The results from forensic tests also included within the documents show that Zimmerman's DNA was the only one that could be identified on the grip of the gun used to shoot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The results rule out Martin's DNA from being on the gun's grip.

Zimmerman's DNA also was identified on the gun's holster. The tests were inconclusive as to whether Martin's DNA was on the gun's holster.

So much for the "he was trying to wrestle the gun out of my hand" aspect of his defense.

Not really......

"Zimmerman said Martin was on top of him, slamming his head against the ground when he grabbed his gun from a holster before Martin could get it." Did you read that part ...."before Martin could get it."?

Likely, there was a scuffle for Zimmermans gun, but Martin was unable to get a hand on it before he died.

What else they know is from the autopsy report on Martin and the medical report on Zimmerman:


Broken nose
Two black eyes
Lacerations on the back of his head


Bloody knuckles with Zimmerman's DNA
Gunshot wound

Show me where Zimmerman said there

was a wresting match for the gun. What he said was that the gun at some point became visible and Martin seemed to be groping for it while Zimmerman was trying to keep other hands away. Martin not having succeeded in grabbing the gun ads no new evidence to that claim.
