SANFORD As the world eagerly awaits the release of never-before-seen evidence in the case against George Zimmerman, employees for Special Prosecutor Angela Corey late this afternoon provided a preview in the form of an eight-page document.
The paperwork, filed with the Seminole County clerk as closing time approached, listed several witnesses the state plans to call and identified several pieces of the evidence prosecutors expect to use in their scond-degree murder case against Zimmerman.
Most names were redacted from the document, but six civilian witnesses were listed: Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin parents of the alleged victim, Trayvon Martin as well as Trayvon's brother, Jahvarius Fulton; Zimmerman's neighbor, Frank Taaffe; his friend, Joe Oliver; and his father, Robert Zimmerman.
The document listed 18 Sanford police officers as primary witnesses, including lead Investigator Chris Serino. Corey's office also turned over five reports prepared by him, as well as written reports prepared by four other Sanford officers.
According to the documents, prosecutors also have new video evidence from the night of the shooting both from the 7-Eleven store where Trayvon purchased Skittles and Arizona iced tea, and from the clubhouse of Retreat at Twin Lakes, the apartment complex where the teen was killed.
Other video evidence, which shows Zimmerman being taken into Sanford Police Department headquarters after the shooting, has already been made public. Crime scene photos of both Zimmerman and the teen are also listed in the documents filed Monday.
Also included in the evidence, according to the new filing, are phone records Zimmerman's from March 7 to March 22, Trayvon's from January 1 through March 1, and those of an unnamed witness labeled "W8" from February 26 through April 2. Zimmerman's medical records are listed, as are records of his 2005 arrest and domestic-violence injunctions.

SANFORD As the world eagerly awaits the release of never-before-seen evidence in the case against George Zimmerman, employees for Special Prosecutor Angela Corey late this afternoon provided a preview in the form of an eight-page document.Angela, Angela. Where did you get your Law Degree, Mombasa Univ. Correspondence School? And 'Angie' how the heck did you ever pass the FL Bar? And I don't mean the Kitty-Kat Men's Club 'bar' (okay, times were tough and you needed cash, I get it).
All of your so-called 'evidence' isn't and most of your so-called 'witnesses' aren't. So here's a clue -- get ready to be flooded with motions to SUPPRESS and EXCLUDE 98% everything you have before the trial even starts. And Angie, any judge with an IQ above yours, which isn't much sweetie, WILL GRANT those said motions because they are Irrelevant, Immaterial, and/or Hearsay. In English, that means you can't use it. You'll be left 'maybe', with the two video tapes and they don't mean much either as to the actual case (see: Irrelevant).
Additionally, any first year law school could get those so-called 'Prior Bad Acts' of Zimmermann's suppressed as 'Prejudicial'. Look that one up in a law book dearie, which is blow número uno to your 'case' as to Zimmerman's character.
ps Angie --- 'The Dog Didn't Bark'. Deal with it.
(look that one up too)
Sounds like Zimmerman learned his “democratic” school lessons better than most. What a tragedy to face a jury in America today, esp. in liberal sections of FL.
So who is the witness with phone records...Dee dee..... or is it the female media hog....I’d like to see who she talked with to help her formulate her story?
Well, the pathetic, narrow world that this so-called "journalist" inhabits anyway. That is, the universe where everything is seen through the lens of racial grievance and perpetual victimhood.
Not sure who you are talking about there ... here is a link to the redacted document:
I haven't studied it closely, but a few observations. 22 witnesses. DeeDee is "W8." Quite a time span between 26 Feb and some witness statements, we can probably figure out which witness is Cutcher, for example.
Remarks at Orlando Sentinel are remarkable. The readers aren't falling for Corey's fiction.
Ok, first a correct. I said 22 witnesses, but those are the unnamed civilian witnesses. Frank Taffe is a named civilian witness (intimidation factor, by Corey, at work there, you can bet on it).
The custodian of phone records is the phone company. I see the state grabbed ALL of Zimmerman's communications from 7 March to 22 March, texts, videos, notes and photos. Might have taken these off his phone, but the dates don't really line up.
The state did not file the reports with the court. Anything on the list with an asterisk is between Corey and O'Mara; and is by law a public document. According to predictions int he news, O'Mara is going to file the Motion for Protective Order.
On Monday, Corey's office filed a motion under seal, asking that certain information in the case be protected from public disclosure. It's not clear whether she wants more than witness names kept secret. O'Mara said he was not sure whether he would file a similar motion.List of state's witnesses, evidence filed in George Zimmerman case - Orlando sentinel - May 15, 2012
67 cds? few cases get this much attention.
Also scans are not originals.
this data dump is about prejudicing the jury pool and pandering to the democrats.
From the looks of things, at trial she will throw all the mud evidence and the mud witnesses she can muster to the jury panel in the hopes at least some of the slime will stick.
She is wily. She knows how to play the game....which in this case is that it's NOT THE FACTS in her prosecution at trial which count, but it's just GOOD INTENTIONS AND THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE CHARGES which should be considered for a "guilty" verdict.
(....which is standard liberal reasoning).
“That is, the universe where everything is seen through the lens of racial grievance and perpetual victimhood.”
I think we should stop using such words that perhaps gives them credibility and instead call it what it is: “That is, the universe where everything is seen through the lens of GREED.
Yup. It's like the elitist who is said to have complained after Nixon's landslide win in 1972: "How could Nixon have won? Nobody I know voted for him!" They're truly in a different world.
I don't think this 'case' will even see the Trial phase let alone a jury pool being seated. She is a certified idiot going ahead with what she has. Which is zero.
Methinks waiving the speedy trial was a mistake. The case was clear, and more time allows obfuscation and misdirection.
I wonder what the clubhouse video shows? Could be Trayvon walking. Could be Trayvon walking right past GZ’s truck when GZ was on the phone. Could be audio of the shot fired to establish a timeline. Could be almost anything.
I don’t think most CC video has audio.
And I believe (could be wrong) that they have the shot on one or more of the 911 calls from witnesses.
Ah. I didn’t catch that it was CC. I just assumed (I know ...) that it was footage from a security camera like mine at home, which records audio.
No, I’m sure you’re correct about the 911 audio.
Well, I’m assuming it’s CC. So who knows?
I kind of doubt at this point that Z is still a democrat.
