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?
Home? Did Mr. Martin live there? I thought he was visiting his girlfriend who lives there.
