Prior TV interview contradicts current claims of certainty
Jarvis Martin, Fulton half-brother, testified in court today that the voice on the 911 call was that of Trayvon Martin. On cross-examination, however, it was revealed that two weeks after first hearing the screams on the 911 call he was interviewed in a sit-down with a local TV reporter and at that time told the reporter he was uncertain if the screamer was Trayvon.
The testimony came shortly after Trayvon’s mother said she was sure it was Trayvon screaming.
Here’s a link to the original CBS television interview being referenced by Mark O’Mara (statements at issue start at 11:10).
