Speaking for the first time since his baby brother, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was gunned down in cold-blood by neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, 28, Jahvaris Fulton spoke exclusively with CBS Miami, saying that he still can’t wrap his brain around the murder of his brother on the night of February 26:
I didn’t believe it. I kind of still don’t believe it, which is why it’s not easy for me to talk about him. I just think he’s coming back. I think he’s gone to visit someone and he’ll be back.”
Zimmerman’s father, retired magistrate judge for the Virginia Supreme Court, Robert Zimmerman, brother Robert Zimmerman, Jr. and his one “Black friend,” Joe Oliver, have been making the media rounds spreading Zimmerman’s account of the night that Trayvon was murdered like it’s gospel.
Jahvaris quickly rejects that characterization of Trayvon and especially took offense to Zimmerman’s father saying that Trayvon was on top of his son beating him while saying that he was going to “die tonight”:
That doesn’t sound like my brother at all. He wasn’t that way at all.”
