Trayvon Public Info Blocked

    In this undated family photo, Trayvon Martin poses for a family photo. The family of the black teenager fatally shot by a white neighborhood watch volunteer arrived at Sanford City Hall Friday evening March 16, 2012 to listen to recordings of 911 calls police previously refused to release. Police agreed to release the recordings earlier that afternoon. Officials are allowing the family of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to hear the recordings before making them public. Martin's parents previously sued to have the recordings released. A hearing for the case was scheduled for Monday. Martin was fatally shot last month as he returned to a Sanford home during a visit from Miami. His parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, accused Sanford police of botching the investigation and criticized them for not arresting 28-year-old George Zimmerman, who says he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Martin was not armed. They say the police department hasn't arrested Zimmerman because he is white and their son was black. (AP Photo/HO, Martin Family Photos)

    Despite the intense interest in the Trayvon Martin case, authorities are invoking the “active criminal investigative information records exemption” to keep from having to reveal any details into their investigation of George Zimmerman. No documents, videos or factual information regarding the case will be released, said special prosecutor Angela Corey’s office in a statement Thursday. The national media has descended on Sanford, the city where Martin was shot and killed. Zimmerman remains uncharged because of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, but authorities are investigating to see if they can bring charges.
