A photographer has released a photo to the media reportedly showing George Zimmerman’s bloody head after an altercation with 17-year-old Trayvon Martin ended in the teenager’s murder.
According to ABC News, which obtained the photo, the photographer claims to have taken the photo “three minutes after he shot and killed Martin.” Serious head wounds bleed profusely. They do not stop bleeding after 3 minutes.
The photo should not be allowed into evidence because it could have been taken at any time between Feb. 26 and the day he was arrested. The prosecution will likely rely on photos that were taken during the booking process by Sanford police, rather than the photo obtained by ABC, which could easily have been Photoshopped.
