Investigator Wanted Shooter Charged

ABC News reports that the lead homicide investigator on the Trayvon Martin case initially called for George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the 17-year-old, to be charged with manslaughter. The state’s attorney’s office, however, reportedly ruled that there was not enough evidence for a conviction, sources told ABC News. On the night of the shooting, investigator Chris Serino filed an affidavit saying he had doubts about what Zimmerman said happened, though Zimmerman’s claims of self defense were accepted and he was freed. To complicate matters further, the first person to talk to Zimmerman was a narcotics officer, not a homicide detective.
