George Zimmerman’s Wife Admits To Having Doubts

The wife of George Zimmerman has admitted that she has doubts about what really happened the night that Trayvon Martin was killed.

The revelation came out in an exclusive interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer.

From NBC:

“I’m conflicted on that,” Shellie told Lauer on TODAY Thursday. “I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me take the blinders off and start to see things differently.” Lauer pressed further, asking, “So you now doubt his innocence, at least the fact that he was acting in self-defense on the night that Trayvon Martin was killed?”

“I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don’t know the person that I’ve been married to,” Shellie responded. “I have doubts, but I also believe the evidence.” Despite these doubts, Shellie vehemently denies that George profiled the teen. “He did not profile Trayvon Martin,” she said.

Zimmerman Trial Medical Examiner to File Lawsuit

With his recent arrest and his wife filing for divorce, George Zimmerman has remained in the news. Now, the medical examiner who was involved in the Zimmerman trial is grabbing headlines. Shiping Bao intends to file a $100M lawsuit, claiming the prosecution and others involved in the trial, blew the case,

Through his high-profile attorney, he claims the medical examiner, state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department were all biased against Martin.

“He says their general attitude was that he got what he deserved,” Attorney Willie Gary told Channel 9.

Gary said Dr. Bao was made to be a scapegoat and was wrongfully fired from the medical examiner’s office. He said his client was prepared to offer proof that Martin was not the aggressor.

“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,'” Gary said.

Gary said prosecutors never asked Dr. Bao a question crucial to their case.

“He wanted a question that would have allowed him to explain to the jury with scientific evidence how there was no way Trayvon Martin could have been on top of George Zimmerman,” Gary said.
