Richard Kurtz, who prepared the 17-year-old’s body for burial, said he did not notice injuries which would suggest that he had been involved in a fight, as Zimmerman has insisted.
In another interview with CBS news, Mr. Kurtz also reiterated this point, saying: ”We could see no physical signs like there had been a scuffle, there had been a fight.”
“The hands – I didn’t see any knuckles, bruises or what have you. And that is something we would have covered up if it would have been there.”
He added: “The story does not make sense, that he was in this type of scuffle, of fight.’
As previously reported, Trayvon’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin told CNN’s Piers Morgan that the video footage of Zimmerman proves “what they have known all along”.
Ms Fulton told Morgan: “We just looked at the video and we were just surprised because according to the police report, he sustained injuries, but when we looked at the video, it was obvious that there were no visible injuries. [there was no] blood on his shirt.”
However, George Zimmerman’s brother last night faced the public to insist his brother is “the neighbour that everyone would want to have” and shot Trayvon Martin in while defending himself.
Robert Jr insisted that, contrary to media reports, his brother was responsible and friendly as he said: “He’s the neighbour that everybody would want to have. He goes out of his way to help people – he always has.”
And he added that police footage of the killer after his arrest proved that he was injured in a fight with Trayvon: “To me his nose looks swollen in that video. I’m his brother.”
