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?
The dad’s account was that Trayvon had been spending time with his (the elder Martin’s) nephew, who was twenty. The earliest source I could find regarding the 13-year-old was the account of the Martin lawyer, Benjamin Crump, who once said that the candy Martin had gone out to purchase was for 13-year-old Chad. Crump also alternately referred to Chad as Martin’s own brother, which he was not (Martin had no younger brother of his own.)
Again, the only reason I am skeptical of this version is that I can’t quite imagine that a kid sat waiting for his candy all evening long as emergency vehicles swarmed the neighborhood, and when dad got home, that would never come up. You know?
I read a news story that the police do not believe Trayvon paid for the Skittles or the Iced Tea. I assume that if that is true that they would say this because they may have viewed the store video and perhaps watched him walk out without paying.
