Trayvon Martin’s cousin speaks out

    Trayvon Martin’s cousin, Ronquavis Fulton, doesn’t believe the teen could have been the aggressor in the incident that led to his shooting death.

    Ronquavis told HLN’s Nancy Grace that he is positive that it is Trayvon who is screaming for help on the 911 call from the night of Feb. 26.
     
    “I hear my little cousin crying, screaming ‘Help! Help!’ It still haunts me to this day. I can’t even listen to it,” Ronquavis said. “I know his voice on and off the phone. I know his voice. That’s him.”
     
    Tom Owen of Owen Forensic Services told MSNBC that he compared the screams in the background to George’s 911 calls and concluded that it was unlikely that the cries for help came from the shooter.
     
    George has told police that it was he, who was screaming for help during the confrontation with Martin, 17.
     
    The software that Tom used returned a 48 percent match to Zimmerman’s voice. Owen said for it to be a positive match with audio of this quality, he’d expect higher than 90 percent.
     
    George has claimed self-defense, but Fulton finds it unbelievable for Martin to have circled-back and attacked Zimmerman, after realizing he was being followed.
     
    “If you know Trayvon, you know he’s a very well-mannered, soft-spoken person. I mean for him to be the aggressor in this situation is totally unbelievable to me," said Ronquavis.
     
    George also claimed that he ended up with a broken nose and severe injuries on the back of his head. A police surveillance video, released by ABC, shows George exiting a police cruiser with little evidence of those injuries.
     
    Dr. Vidor Friedman, president of the Florida College of Emergency Physicians, told ABC that he was unconvinced.
     
    “If somebody had been beating his head against concrete I’d think we’d see more obvious scrapes,” Vidor said.
     
    He also paid close attention to George’s nose. “All of the ridges in his nose are clearly defined. You would expect significant swelling in the hour or two after a break. There appears to be none,” Vidor said. “ It doesn’t look like his nose was broken or badly broken.”
     
    State Attorney Angela Corey’s office is currently conducting an investigation to decide whether or not to pursue criminal charge against Zimmerman.
     
    “The murderer is still out there at large and we have no peace until justice has been served,” Ronquavis said.
