In an unbelievable turn of events the Volusia County medical examiner who performed the examination on Trayvon Martin’s body after he was shot by George Zimmerman in February of 2012 has now said that the prosecution in the case intentionally lost. Bao also said that his attorney is poised to sue the state of Florida for $100 million for wrongful termination accusing them of using him as a scapegoat in the case.
According to the former assistant coroner, his autopsy results showed that it was impossible for Martin to have been on top of George Zimmerman when the gunman pulled the trigger but the medical examiner’s office, state attorney’s office and Sanford Police were all biased against the teenager. Bao’s attorney Willie Gary told channel 9, “He says their general attitude was that he got what he deserved.” He asserts that Bao was wrongly fired from the medical examiner’s office because of his disagreements with how the investigation was handled.
“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. Gary said that question never came.
Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara resigned on Tuesday after Zimmerman’s estranged wife Shellie called the police and accused him of hitting her father, breaking her IPad, and possibly threatening her with a gun.
When asked by reporters what his former client should do differently with his life going forward, O’Mara replied loudly, “Pay me!” before leaving the room.
