No Evidence Trayvon Touched Gun

Prosecutors on Wednesday released new evidence in the case against George Zimmerman: it appears that Trayvon Martin may never have touched Zimmerman’s gun. Zimmerman told police that he fired only after Martin reached for the gun. But while DNA tests on Zimmerman’s gun and holster found evidence of multiple handlers, none of them matched Martin, leaving no evidence that Martin ever touched it. But not all the new evidence will harm Zimmerman. Also included was a witness diagram suggesting that Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman at some point during the incident.
