The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Trayvon Martin decked George Zimmerman
with one punch and then repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk, according
to a newly released version of the events that led up to the 17-year-old’s
death.

The neighborhood watch captain was left “bloody and battered,”
according to the version Zimmerman told investigators. Witnesses have
corroborated his version, authorities told
The Orlando Sentinel.
And ABC News reports that Zimmerman told police that
Martin knocked him down and attempted to take his gun.

Zimmerman told police he got out of his SUV, but lost sight of Martin. As he
walked back to his vehicle, he said Martin approached him from behind and asked
him if he had a problem. Zimmerman said no and reached for his cell phone, the
Sentinel reports.

Martin said something like “well you do now,” and
punched him in the nose, Zimmerman told police. There has been no report of
witnesses to that alleged initial blow.

As the older man fell to the
ground, Martin jumped on him and started slamming his head into the sidewalk. In
a 911 call from a neighbor, a man can be heard calling for help. Police say they
believe it was Zimmerman’s voice, although Martin’s attorney insists it is the
teen’s.

The Sentinel reports that one witness told police he was certain
he saw Zimmerman on the ground with Martin on top, pounding him.


Zimmerman shot Martin once in the chest “at very close range,” police
told the Sentinel. When they arrived, they found Zimmerman bleeding from the
nose and head. He was treated at the scene but refused to go to the
hospital.

    I knew the truth was going to come out sooner or later. Now we're beginning to get a more clear picture about why Zimmerman wasn't arrested on the spot, or in the month since it happened.

    Conspiracy theories will persist until people hear the explanation they want.
