(CBS News) SANFORD, Fla., - The trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murdering Trayvon Martin is still months away, but the investigation continues.
CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann has come up with new information about what happened that February night when Zimmerman shot the unarmed teenager in a gated community in Sanford, Florida.
At the heart of this case is what happened of the course of 90 seconds: from the moment Zimmerman hung up with a non-emergency dispatcher -- to the first 911 call from a neighbor.
Wednesday new details emerged from sources close to the investigation. A responder at the crime scene told CBS News that he and others saw wounds on the knuckles of one of Martin's hands as he lay dead on this lawn, suggesting Martin had thrown a punch.
Zimmerman told police he fired the shot at point blank range while on his back, as the 17-year-old straddled him.
He also told investigators Martin did not die immediately but mumbled either "it's over" or "you got me."

More like, “I’m gonna git yo punk ass”.
“Martin did not die immediately but mumbled either “it’s over” or “you got me.”
In either case, he was dead on.
Or, “I guess there is a ‘LIMIT’ after all...”
sounds like he watched too many cops-and-robbers movies.
He does know what real numbers are, right??
Zimmerman will not get a fair trial. That is for sure.
The race-baters will be screaming 'bout this. "Zimmerman trapped Trayvon! He didn't give him no chance to run!"
I would think that such a scenario would cause secondary evidence such as powder marks, bullet-path evidence, wound location and so forth that would be unique and impossible to explain away as anything but what Mr. Zimmerman has stated.
no no no he said “Help me Barack”
ABC enhanced martin’s last words, they were...yo cracker I no fool yo, ya got me?
I just saw a photo of Martin in his hoodie and the smiling Zimmerman picture at the site.
I thought he said “Darn, ya got me...”
Could mean "too far for powder burns, close enough that he couldn't miss."
>> no no no he said Help me Barack
or maybe “Help me daddy-O”
(well, same thing I guess)
One of the conservative gals (Palin, Bachmann, Malkin etc) should get the twitter handle No_Limit_Mutha
Of course the DUmmies will bring out their pandering crying towels when they hear this, claiming that Trayvon was purely talking about his choir-boy, innocent life when he said “It’s over”, after he was “assaulted and murdered by that white racist”. (Gag)
Intermediate means a space in between....2", 10", 20"...There should be a real number to that...It can be tested.
and then Trayvon was taken up to the Mothership...
I figured they would have Trayvon saying “It is finished” before his body ascended to heaven.
Guess he never got the chance to say “Ouch”?
I know. What does that mean? Was Trayvon backing up? Z says he shot him from a position lying on his back with Trayvon straddling him? This piece does not fit.
I erred. Trayvon was in his hoodie, but it wasn’t the smiling picture of Zimmerman.
The leftists will spin this to mean that Zimmerman said “Go ahead punk, make my day!”
>> Intermediate means a space in between....2”, 10”, 20”...There should be a real number to that...It can be tested.
The best theory I’ve heard so far is that whoever reported on this incorrectly reported “intermediate” range, whereas the report actually says “indeterminate”.
Guess we’ll have to wait until the evidence is released to the public to know for sure.
I like it...However, I think of George playing dentist to Dredvon..."Now this may hurt for just a second. Just say ouch if it does".
It fits.....We have to be careful dealing with what we are told via the media and Tray’[s attorneys. It’s manipulation. Be patient.
Or as Bill Cosby put it, “First you say it, then you do it.”
Then again... here’s a website on gunshot wound forensics that mentionsm but does not define, “intermediate distance”:
... so I guess the term “intermediate range” IS in common use.
The mentality suggesting that you can physically attack anyone who “disses” or upsets you started this mess.
It’s OOOOOOOOVER.......que Roy Orbison.
Hunting is much less fun when the rabbit has a gun...
It may be the trajectory that’s going to solve this for us. My thought is that Tray pulled back and Zimmerman took that moment to get the shot off. That would put Tray’s chest within the distance mentioned in that article I posted.
Yeah, I saw the "intermediate distance" thread after I posted to this one.
In that thread, they talked about how clothing that's penetrated by the bullet will stop much of the propellant residue from contacting the skin. We know only too well that Travon was wearing a hoodie. I got the impression that multiple layers of clothing would yield a lot of info to a ballistics expert. I'm sure that will come out in court.
I also expect Trayvon's family to hire an African-American ballistics expert who will say that the bullet and powder-burn evidence indicates that Trayvon was shot from a distance of five or six feet while Mr. Zimmerman stood over him screaming racial epithets, and that Trayvon begged for his life and told Zimmerman "Jesus loves you."
Gunpowder burns are PDC---Pretty darn close.
Well, it's not.
Trayvon Martin suffered 8 injuries.. (on his knuckles)
