A friend of George Zimmerman, the man who shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., told ABC News today that the voice heard howling on the tape of a 911 call was Zimmerman's, not the teen's.
The man, a black friend of the family who spoke to Zimmerman tonight, told ABC News that Zimmerman was weeping for days after the shooting, which sparked protests across the country, and he insisted that Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, is not a racist.
"We wanted to come forward because allegations of racism just aren't true. His friends speak highly of him," said attorney Greg Sonner, who has been representing Zimmerman for two weeks.
Zimmerman's friend said that the howls heard on the 911 call, which helped galvanize the nation against Zimmerman, in fact belonged to Zimmerman, not Martin.
A witness who saw Martin on top of Zimmerman told ABC News the same: the pleas for help were Zimmerman's.

I can’t wait for this to play out so the egg is on everyone’s face. It’s going to be delicious.
Gee, now just look what happens when there’s no rush to judgment.
Martin's father also said it wasn't his son yelling on that recording.
And then he apparently said it was...
I think it past that..nobody wants to wait for facts now including some here...this may well end very badly
We are not to know the truth, becasue the truth shall set us free, and it is now our path to not be free.
Nice country we are turning into.
This is what happens with Universal Suffrage.
On McLaughlin Group tonight it was reported that this incident happened more than three weeks ago. That Zimmerman suffered head injuries and was bleeding profusely when police arrived. No wonder he wasn't arrested.
We see none of these reported injuries in the press.
There is more to the story than meets the MSM eye. One would suppose the chief knows the story, hasn't publicized it, and that the Rev. Sharpton types will end up with egg on their faces after fomenting some riots.
Hmmmm. Race riots don't have a very successful history down South do they?
So, what is the MSM's alternative to why Zimmerman got the hell beat out of him? Supposedly he profiled the kid, teased him into a fight. Anyway, the excuses are already being fabricated.
Truth doesn’t matter to them.
They need a crisis to exploit.
Good luck Al, you ain't as fat as you used to be.
They’re gonna need the dogs and firehoses when the Truth becomes known...
Do we know for sure that picture is of Martin?
I sure don’t know the legal process...but doesn’t this have to go before the Grand Jury before charges are pressed? And wouldn’t it be irresponsible and possibly jeopardize the case for the police to release details until then?
I think if anyone needs to be locked up...it should be the media that is turning this into a circus.
During an interview with Anderson Cooper, the father said it was his son screaming and how heartbreaking it was to listen to his son’s last words. The two female roommates who seem hellbent on convicting Zimmerman before a trial, also insist it was the voice of a child. Anyone and everyone who heard the screams, insist this proves Martin was a helpless victim and not the aggressor. But mark my words, the same people who are citing the importance of it being Trayvon screaming, will be the same people saying it’s meaningless when it’s proven it was actually Zimmerman.
