Forensic pathologist Dr. Vincent di Maio testified that forensic evidence was consistent with George Zimmerman’s version of events that resulted in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Di Maio spoke on a wide range of evidentiary questions, but the key moments came in his support of Zimmerman’s claim that Trayvon Martin had attacked him, and was straddling him at the moment Zimmerman fired.
“Your work, essentially, your task, was to determine whether the medical evidence was consistent with what Mr. Zimmerman said happened,” the defense said.
“The medical evidence—the gunshot wound, the tattooing—is consistent with his opinion, with his statement as to that,” di Maio said, arguing that the evidence suggested Martin was leaning over Zimmerman when the defendant shot him:
