Trayvon Martin Had Drugs in System, Autopsy Found

Posted by   + Show Post

Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, had the drug THC in his system the night of this death, according to new information obtained by ABC News.

The revelation came as prosecutors in the case prepared to release to the public hundreds of pages of new evidence along with videos and crime scene photos.

Martin's death sparked public outrage after police released Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, without any criminal charges for the killing.

Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who shot the black high school junior at close range on Feb. 26, and claimed self-defense, though Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder, and the killing provoked widespread debate about racial profiling.

The autopsy report shows traces of the drug THC, which is found in marijuana, in Martin's blood and urine.

The autopsy also shows that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between 1 inch and 18 inches away, bolstering Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin during a struggle that landed Zimmerman on his back, Martin straddling him and banging Zimmerman's head on the ground.

Martin's autopsy report also revealed that there was a quarter-inch by half-inch abrasion on the left fourth finger of Martin, another indication of a possible struggle. The teen, who lived in Miami, was in Sanford while serving a suspension for a bag of marijuana being discovered in his possession.

Later today, a trove of documents that are part of the discovery in Zimmerman's trial are expected to be released on a website run by the state's attorney, including 67 CDs worth of documents, video of Martin on the night of the shooting, his autopsy report and videos of Zimmerman's questioning by police.

Breaking news just posted this on FB from ABC so I brought it here. Not sure if its been posted already! Thoughts?

I love how the article waits several paragraphs to define what THC is. To the uninformed reader THC looks like some wacky synthetic ecstasy drug. lol.

Big effing whoop. Everyone knew he smoked pot anyway.

We are in SC. Guess its different. Stupid but different. Im sorry but if youre arrested you should be tested.


Quoting jewels5525:

Not in FL at least.  They have been saying that from day one.  Trayvon was tested as part of autopsy.  but Zimmerman could not be tested without a warrant.  


Quoting comewhatmay1019:

They do. My brother in law was shot and killed in a home invasion last year. The men responsible were arrested and all five drug tested. Its standard procedure.





Quoting free1:

 So?   They should've tested The shooter (Zimmerman) as well.  What's that got to do with a domestic violence, woman beater, cop beater ticking time bomb (person) killing an innocent child (Trayvon)?  I forgot to add:  Reports sayZimmerman ws a bouncer for illegal house parties (illegal drinking and  Rave) parties.  A great role model...

I would think so.  Noone even if licensed to carry should fire a gun when impared, i would think the first thing they would do would be to check.  Apparantly according to other moms who are more farmiliar with the FL laws, they cannot test without a warrant.  Considered a civil right abuse.
