But right now the forensic evidence Simmons defense lawyer questioned the lead investigator about the fatal gunshot.
-- Lieutenants report.
And its findings were consistent with mr.
Zimmerman storybook and yes kind as far as how I'm sorry I'm correct.
Where his -- yes and the distance.
The muzzle of the gun and -- correct.
Yes and also that there was a gap of a few inches between the clothing.
Martin's chest correct yes everything you've got there with a muscle.
Of the -- was up against the chest bumps up against insurer.
But it sure was not against the chest.
But there was a few -- difference.
And didn't that support the contention that mr.
Martin was hanging over -- didn't -- his -- coming forward.
When the shot was fired.
I guess because having been standing up and I am now is sure go against his chest follow.
Probably yes if I lead over my.
Sure it's gonna fall apart from -- just a few inches and that seems to be power -- correctness of the medical Examiner's report however it does not support.
That this isn't impressed that gun against -- on Martin's chest before he fired it doesn't.
-- -- -- matter of fact been known evidence completely contradicts that type numbers suggest that doesn't.
From what I understand yes.
Through no pressing you're only going to get to chat with him.
Not based on notice that right now.
Present path just doctor Michael Baden joins us before even get to that -- matches I gotta tell you that the bad is that.
Why in the world the prosecution -- object of this is when this clearly was not qualified to testified she was just -- as to what the medical as amber said someplace else.
But I don't -- the prosecutors that it must be sleeping and then the oldest trick in the book that does the defense lawyer he kept pulling up his hands to show the gap between me so record and the body as though the guy was wearing -- three -- he was in davis' mom got it on big huge sweatshirt but still -- -- the -- but anyway that's another -- Tell me the importance of that.
Of the study of that that sweatshirt and the bullet wound.
Yet that the problem is to begin with Greta UFC right.
There's no mention of the clothing in the autopsy report.
The bodies receive new -- Do clothing got to the -- off this -- a separate -- received with a podium but nobody in the and the office seems to have looked at the clothing.
So all of what the the detective was agreeing to was not true.
-- it what is true is that it was not a contact me.
Via the muzzle was not up against the skin.
At -- time.
The autopsy and it was done we -- see that but it was within two with three inches away.
The the who have -- was about two inches in diameter.
And that will be back to a three inches away.
But that has to be evaluated.
By the criminalist who does test firing of the weapon and we have nothing -- -- that.
So far there's been up and network in the records.
About the clothing.
And if you look at the -- -- defense lawyer and a screen he's going up his fingers as though it's about six inches this big gap.
And he ended jury is looking at embassies doing this and the -- and the -- and city -- not complaining I people like me think I mean aren't they paying attention but.
Let me -- in the questioning.
-- doing salmon the sweatshirt.
And the wound -- the -- spotty.
And make a determination to see if that sweatshirt was away from the body and can you estimate the damage could make an estimate that but can you look at that estimate that.
Yes yes -- criminals from we'll probably do that the medical examiner can also.
Didn't see this spread of this stapling and the soot.
That comes out of the muzzle of gun.
And how why did -- is on the outer most clothing.
They -- the could be -- probably is the most important piece of the clothing to be able to measure that.
And that will tell you how far away the muzzle is.
That outer garment because once it -- clothing.
The the -- spreads in different directions.
So that what winds up on the skin is not necessarily.
The distance I have from the muzzle the gun.
But just so I'm clear opinion establishment there's a gap between the sweatshirt and the body because that's -- he's leaning over and -- happen.
George Zimmerman in what you would expect this question to drop a bit.
-- and I know -- you you can't tell the distance of the out of most garment which is what's most important.
From the skin except.
By the medical exam and he can't -- common sense perhaps.
But by -- the -- read the ballistics tests which aren't in evidence at all yet.
One could get -- a good idea of how far.
The muzzle is the gun is from.
The clothing at the time to discharge and the direction it's going and so it gives you the idea of what I have but the general and that's the Christian right has to have people.
-- plus you live but that's not what they're really trying to step to try to establish a big gap but let me ask you about something outs can't help but yeah and I -- but he.
Can can you tell the fact -- GAAP.
Maybe can't measure the precise get -- back to the -- -- you could then -- that.
The the clothing the spread on the clothing.
Is different this redness -- -- say there was a gap but you can't tell how much of a gap.
-- -- Now do you support a medical examiner testifying today in court about some moments injuries.
Injuries to the back of the defendants had consistent.
But having been repeatedly slammed into a concrete surface.
-- did so remind them that -- in the way.
Slant inside it's great for us.
I -- the resultant injuries.
Are not Great Falls.
Back -- -- your thoughts and I should seventh as dementia affected -- this doctor looked at photographs to actually examine George Zimmerman right after the incident but tell me whether what do you think about her testimony.
I think that it hurt a -- -- very reasonable but -- did look at medical records in the EMS records and doctor records that we receive.
And what is he has multiple injuries on the back of the head and the nose.
But nothing with -- it's serious enough as -- by the EMS.
People by the doctors whose doctors who examined him to require stitches.
To required X -- to require further evaluation.
That he he was not disorienting -- walking talking immediately after this his blood pressure was funny wasn't breathing hard.
All of this would indicate that the injuries themselves.
However we can't tell how many injuries and can tell at least one or two injuries -- three today ahead.
But many injuries don't leave any marks on the body so we can never tell the total number of injuries.
Are in terms of those injuries could -- be sustained by someone punching someone in the face and the person falling.
Party have to be -- -- to -- at least multiple times have been hit that had maybe even beyond that person.
Well I think that a full -- punch in the face -- a -- down and hitting their head against the concrete.
Could create all the injuries actually because -- the shape for the head.
But the that can be many impacts that don't leave any injuries that we can't -- by those who don't know they weren't serious.
And they was a discussion about the shape of -- ahead.
Everybody's head is different and I perfectly round so we have lumps and bumps and that is the -- bros so -- they could tell criminality.
From the bombs on the head in that little bombs on the head.
And that's what appeared to really don't always heard what was pointed out.
And that the interest of her partner that can hurt yes seven and -- is there.
