Much has been made about the 911 call in which you can hear someone screaming in the background during the last moments of Trayvon Martin's life. George Zimmerman's supporters, such as his father and brother, claim it is him screaming, but Trayvon's Martin's family are adamant it is him. Some of the 911 callers and other witnesses who heard the screams say the sounds depicted sounded like a a younger child's screams. Zimmerman, 28. claimed he was attacked by Martin before the fatal shooting. He was not arrested and charged which has led to a national outcry for his arrest.
The Orlando Sentinel asked "forensic voice experts" to analyze the 911 call with the screams and they have both come to the conclusion that the screams being heard in the background could not be that of George Zimmerman. The Orlando Sentinel:
"I took all of the screams and put those together, and cut out everything else," Owen says. The software compared that audio to Zimmerman's voice. It returned a 48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this quality, he'd expect higher than 90 percent.
"As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it's not Zimmerman," Owen says, stressing that he cannot confirm the voice as Trayvon's, because he didn't have a sample of the teen's voice to compare.
Another expert was consulted and came to the very same conclusion. Video has already been released of Zimmerman when he was taken to the police station after the shooting which showed no apparent bruising or bleeding. The funeral director who prepared Trayvon's body said there were no signs of injury that would be consistent with the type of physical altercation Zimmerman claimed.
