    Autopsy: Trayvon Had Drugs in System

    Trayvon Martin had drugs in his system when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, the official autopsy on his body revealed. The report said that THC, which is found in marijuana, was found in Martin’s blood and urine. The autopsy report also shows that Martin was shot from between 1 inch and 18 inches away, supporting Zimmerman’s claim that he shot Martin during a struggle. The autopsy report is part of a collection of documents and photos released on Thursday, as a result of the discovery process requiring state prosecutors to turn over their evidence in the case to Zimmerman’s defense. Among the documents are photos of Zimmerman taken the day after the shooting that show a bruised nose and scratches on the back of his head. Statements from witnesses also corroborate that the shooting may have been in self-defense. But the documents also show that Sanford Police believe the entire incident was “ultimately avoidable” if Zimmerman had “remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement.”
