George Zimmerman “told substantially the complete truth” when asked about the fatal shooting of Martin, according to the conclusion of a Voice Stress Analysis test conducted after the shooting.

Zimmerman, who is facing a second-degree murder charge for killing Martin, was asked several questions. They include, “Did you confront the guy you shot?” Zimmerman answered “no.”

He was also asked, “Where you in fear for your life, when you shot this guy?” Zimmerman answered, “yes.”

See the results and questions below.

 

Martin was fatally shot following a Feb. 26 altercation with Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman has steadfastly claimed self-defense and has pleaded not guilty.

Also, new video shows our best look yet at the injuries on Zimmerman. Police officers detail every scrape and bruise. He claims there were no injuries to his arms or hands because Martin was just focused on his head.

But the doubts continued. At least one officer wrote Zimmerman should be charged with manslaughter and pointed out Zimmerman, at least twice, could have identified himself to Trayvon martin as a neighborhood watchman to defuse the situation and didn't.
