The law enforcement official said that authorities knew where Zimmerman was and were planning to arrest him soon rather than let him turn himself in. The official said he was not in Florida.
Zimmerman's shooting of the unarmed black teenager Feb. 26 brought demands from black leaders for his arrest and set off a furious nationwide debate over race and self-defense that reached all the way to the White House.
The 28-year-old Zimmerman, whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic, said the teenager attacked him. Martin's family argued Zimmerman was the aggressor.
On Tuesday, Zimmerman's lawyers announced they were withdrawing from the case because they hadn't heard from him since Sunday and didn't know where he was. They portrayed his mental state as fragile.
"He is largely alone. You might even say he is emotionally crippled by virtue of the pressure of this case," said one of the lawyers, Hal Uhrig.
The case has drawn the interest of the highest levels of the Obama administration, with the Justice Department's civil rights division opening its own investigation.

Sad to say I think they’re doing him a favor if they charge him with something. I think he’ll be safer from retribution.
Yeah, they’ll arrest him faster than you can say furious.
Why would they not allow him to turn himself in? It could be pre-arranged in a safe location.
The whole purpose is to make RACISM the central issue of the elections instead of the focus being on the economy, nationalization of healthcare and Obama’s failures. For these evil people, it does not matter that they will destroy the life of an innocent person in the process.
May I borrow that for use in conversation with freinds and neightbors? That is absolutely brilliant!
I suspect that his arrest will be announced during the upcoming press conference. Timing, timing, timing.... makes for great visual impact.
Zimmerman, the victim of a politically and racist motivated lynching, could have saved himself all of these problems, if he had simply allowed the Black Skittles punk to finish killing him.
IOW they want their hoodie justice perp walk.
Just adds to the no way he can get a fair trial.
and by fair under the law it is were the PROSECUTION has the overwhelming burden of proof. It is NOT 50/50.
And for the same reason.

“... arrest him soon, rather than let him turn himself in.”
They do love that perp walk, don’t they?
Yeah, she was supposed to be fair. So far all I see is a politically correct posturing race pimp.
I can only hope that this blows up in everyones face.
I hope Rush is right. He seems to think that Zimmerman has fled to another country that does not honor extradition of citizens from another country, such as Brazil—
