Yes, I was trying to focus more narrowly here on the known timeline. I’ve never been able to track down the actual source of the story that he was going to 7-11. His dad was not at home when Trayvon left the house, and the story was out there before the girlfriend came forward. There was one report that the dad’s girlfriend had a 13-year-old who was home, but I am skeptical of that account for several reasons - not least of which being that I suspect the dad would have been a little more concerned that Trayvon was not home if the younger boy had been waiting all night for him to come back while emergency vehicles swarmed the neighborhood.

Obviously, the “All-Star Game halftime” embellishment that popped up early on was fiction.

I read a REALLY good synopsis on a website that caters to African-Americans. Actually a very good account. They said that Trayvon and Ms Green’s son were home while the Mr MArtin and Ms Green went to supper. That article also alluded to a nephew of hers that was 21 years old who had hit it off good with Trayvon. In that article, that was the reason why the dad was not worried that Trayvon was not home that evening when they got back.

The 7-Eleven story had to come from somewhere. If there was a 13 year old at the condo, his testiminy will be crucial. I wonder if the police have gone to the 7-Eleven and looked for video footage to nail-down a timeline?
