March 5, 2013 – The murder case against George Zimmerman has apparently taken a turn for the worst for prosecutors in Florida. The most important witness against Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin‘s girlfriend, was caught in a lie Tuesday. She had told police that she was in the hospital during Martin’s funeral and that is why she did not attend. When investigators checked hospital and medical records they discovered she had not been in the hospital.
When reporters asked the state’s lead prosecutor, Bernie de la Rionda, if he would charge the girlfriend with perjury he responded: “You can all read the law and make your own decision.”
Another lie told was about her age. She told investigators during her recorded interview that she was 16 years old. She was actually 18 at the time.
The girls Twitter and Facebook accounts have been subpoenaed so that investigators can read her posts. It’s going to be interesting to hear what the little liar posted about the case and her dealings with her little thug wannabe Trayvon.
It may not sound like such a big deal that she lied about her age or even why she missed his funeral. It’s the fact that she lied to investigators during a murder investigation. You don’t do that. You don’t lie to law enforcement, especially when you are the number one witness in the states case.
What this girl did was destroy her credibility as a key witness. Prosecutors know that if she takes the stand, the Zimmerman team will have a field day destroying her as a responsible, honest citizen.
I believe this new turn of events only helps George Zimmerman’s defense. Nothing Martin’s girlfriend says on the stand now can be believed. She is a proven liar, and that does not work well at all for the state. -JRoycroft
