Michael Winter at USA Today reported last night that Zimmerman gets FBI files on Trayvon, more phone records.
He refers to new discovery released by the State pursuant to orders issued by Judge Nelson and requests by the defense. The article links to the State’s document titled, State’s 9th Supplemental Discovery.
I think the title of the article is misleading because the FBI never investigated Trayvon Martin as a suspect. Instead, the FBI investigated Zimmerman for committing a possible hate crime when he killed Martin.
As far as I know, that investigation remains active.
I do not know if the FBI is investigating the Sanford Police Department for possible civil rights violations. I believe such an investigation is warranted, but can neither confirm nor deny it.
I believe these FBI reports supplement reports released earlier and will be released to the public within the next few weeks after the defense has had an opportunity to review them.
Zimmerman’s medical records from the clinic are also in this dump. Judge Nelson reviewed the clinic’s records in camera and approved this set for release to the State and the public.
For additional information, please review the list.
