When questioned by the FDLE, instead of the witness leading, witness correcting, witness coaching, inept Sanford PD, Witness John admits he doesn't know who was calling for help, it was too dark to see their mouths.

In addition to Martin's family saying it was Martin heard calling for help, 2 different audio voice experts, using 2 different methods of examination, would stake their reputations on the fact that it was not Zimmerman calling for help.
On the contrary, Martins father Tracy said that it WASN'T the voice of his son Trayvon that he heard screaming on the tape. His girlfriend also said that she didn't know if it was Trayvon screaming for help.

The audio experts never received a copy of Trayvon's voice with which to compare the audio. Can you tell me why the Martins never gave investigators a tape / digital recording of their sons voice?
Yeah

Which turned out to be false. Or are you trying to tell us that while Martin was beating Zimmerman to death, Martin was screaming for help?
lol! Now there you go "drawing ridiculous conclusions" on your own son.

Just like your claim "...Martin was beating Zimmerman to death."

You've gone beyond the factual and into your opinions.

Again I ask, what are you suggesting? That while Martin was beating the crap out of Zimmerman, Martin was yelling for help?

Background sounds of yelling for help in 9-1-1 calls

In recordings of the 9-1-1 calls, yells for help are audible in the background. Zimmerman's family says it was Zimmerman yelling for help, Martin's family says it was Martin yelling for help, and independent audio analysts offer differing opinions as to who was yelling for help.

Independent audio experts vary in their interpretations of the low-quality audio of the phone recordings, which one expert compared to analyzing low-resolution video from a security camera.[227] The FBI was not able to determine whether it was Zimmerman or Martin who could be heard yelling out for help in 9-1-1 calls, citing both poor audio quality and "the extreme emotional state of the person screaming."[228][229] Two expert audio technicians, listed as possible witnesses for the prosecution, analyzed the emergency calls made during the altercation and concluded that the screams did not come from Zimmerman.[230]

In an interview with prosecutors on March 19, Zimmerman's father identified the yells as George Zimmerman's, stating, "There is no doubt who is yelling for help. It is absolutely my son." Other relatives of Zimmerman, including his brother, concur and are equally adamant.[231] During a bond hearing on June 29, the 9-1-1 recording was played in court, and Zimmerman's father testified that "it was definitely George's" voice heard yelling for help in the recorded 9-1-1 call.[232]

According to police reports, after listening to audio recordings of the 9-1-1 calls, Martin's father, Tracy Martin, told police investigators that it was not Trayvon Martin's voice yelling for help.[206] Martin has since told reporters he was uncertain at that time, but that when he heard an enhanced recording on March 16 he was convinced it was his son yelling for help. Investigators interviewed Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, who reviewed the 9-1-1 calls to police and identified the voice crying for help as her son.[223] Investigators also interviewed Martin's cousin who stated that without a doubt "on a stack of bibles" it was Martin yelling for help on the 9-1-1 tape.[233][234]
During the FBI investigation, Witness 45, a neighbor of Zimmerman's, stated he was 110% sure the voice calling for help was Zimmerman's.

Are you sure you know what's going on?
When did I ignore that fact? Did I ever dispute there was a dead body or something?

Did I draw a conclusion? I thought I asked a question. Why would Martin be screaming for help when he was the only one assaulting another person? His autopsy showed no signs of injury outside of the bullet wound.
Yeah

Son, you shouldn't use Wiki as your "source" since they've just discovered the biggest hoax in their history.

I don't know why you lazy people feel it's a "legitimate" source when even they claim they aren't.

Nope, it was in story after story. No reports out there making claim that Martin had any injuries related to being hit.

Isn't it just too bad for the pedophile Zimmerman that he was three blocks away where he was supposed to be at, that the pedophile has a history of violence, that the pedophile as a record, that is a racist, that the pedophile has told four version of what happen, that the state of Florida has looked at the facts in this case and concludes it can put this pedophile in jail?

America is a little safer... certainly, black children are safer.

There is no disputing that who ever was yelling, he was doing it from the sidewalk that was out of sight of the truck the pedophile was told to stay - the mailboxes where he was supposed to meet the police officers who were trained to investigate this boy who had every right to be exactly where he was at.

It seems the pedophile thug never got over flunking out of school and not having what it took to be a cop. It seems that pedophile thug thought having a gun was enough for him to pretend to be a cop.

Only thing that matters is what the jury sees

And they will see that a punk attacked Zim, punched him in the face and knock him out.
The black punk then jumped on top of Zim to continue to beat him until Zim had been beaten long enough and the he defended himself with a single point blank gunshot wound to the chest
