As the Trayvon Martin controversy splinters into a debate about self-defense, a central question remains: Who was heard crying for help on a 911 call in the moments before the teen was shot?
A leading expert in the field of forensic voice identification sought to answer that question by analyzing the recordings for the Orlando Sentinel.
His result: It was not George Zimmerman who called for help.

The 911 operator knows the phone number of the incoming call if it is a cell phone.
Whose number was it?
i can find expert astrophysicists who claim we have never gone into space because it is impossible.
They probably interviewed a thousand “experts” and found 2 who said what that wanted to hear.
“The software compared that audio to Zimmerman’s voice. It returned a 48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this quality, he’d expect higher than 90 percent.
“As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it’s not Zimmerman,” Owen says, stressing that he cannot confirm the voice as Trayvon’s, because he didn’t have a sample of the teen’s voice to compare.”
So, did they get a recent sample of Zimmerman’s voice as somebody repeatedly bashed his head into the pavement, again?
I would reckon that could change the pitch of his “normal” voice ~just~ a bit.
Nobody, anywhere, any time *ever* got a recording of Trayvon speaking?
With cell phone videos and all the other recording devices abundant *everywhere* these days, I find that a bit odd.
Zimmmer’s father says it was George screaming and his opinion should be the only one to be considered fact.
The 911 call with screaming in the background is a third party witness.
If one is able to testify "the guy on the bottom who was getting his head bashed on the ground" is the one screaming, that's compelling.
Does the third party witness know?
Two experts? Let me guess: Are their names Jesse and Al?
Jamaal and Lashanda
If the angle boy Trayvon was getting his head bashed I wonder if he had any head injuries? Apparently Zimmerman did.
I don't know. I was just saying that other witnesses may be more useful than Zimmerman's father.
As for this report, it's of the same value as the "no wounds on his head" conclusion, based on a grainy police video. It's jinned up (using 'jin' as in "genie") noise to get attention to the media. When the rubber meets the road, this experts testimony would be subject to lots of scrutiny.
Notice he can't rule in Trayvon, so he's left us a mystery. If you're the jury, you have to look at other evidence. Zimmerman is banged up, Martin isn't. Who was winning the fight? Who is more likely to be yelling for help?
The leading experts said that both certificates and selective service registration are forgeries.
Whose head was being bashed? That is who scremed for help. Chicago newspaper? Uh uh....no cigar.
That would be impossible. Reason is that Zimmerman had a gun and there were no beating wounds on Trayvon. This has already been said.
There would not be minutes of screaming for help if George was just going to shoot Trayvon.
I heard the the screaming, that was a person being whomped.
Prosecutors aren't in the business of passing on winnable cases.
They probably interviewed a thousand experts and found 2 who said what that wanted to hear.DING! DING! DING!
We have a winner!
I've read and re-read this article a few times. I can't find any mention of what specific sample of Zimmerman's voice was used to compare to the 911 call (made by a resident) that contained the screams. Did I miss something in this article?
Two so-called experts making this claim doesn't impress me, since you can always find an expert to come up with the results you want, if you pay them enough money.
