Just a follow up to this post. It was pointed out to me that a forensic audio specialist did review this call and came to the same conclusion that I did regarding the "stop." He also says he hears "Martin" yelling "I'm begging you" but I haven't reached this conclusion myself (to be honest, I haven't looked into it yet either.. but I will, and I suspect he'll be correct about the words). You can find his detailed analysis and an explanation of how to read a spectrograph here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/trayvon-martin-case-911-call-two-experts-reach-two-much-different-conclusions/2012/05/19/gIQAtuapbU_story.html
* He doesn't really explain -how- to read it, but he does show a comparison between "help" and "stop"
I am kind of skeptical about his report. He is determining the age of the two gentlemen. but he doesn't say anything about how the airway to Zimmerman's nose could be compromised. Pinch your nose shut, partially at the bridge, and speak out loud. Your voice quality changes. There is also the fact that Trayvon's voice is probably deeper since he is over sixteen.
I wonder why the family hasn't come forth with any recorded video of TM. I find it hard to believe that there is nothing that they have in their possession, some film clip on a cell or a video, something that is relatively current. If they don't have something, maybe one of his friends? IDK.
I just don't understand how he can determine the voices and the age.
He is definitely using GZ's voice on the NEN for comparison but his voice is relatively calm in the NEN. He is not in any altercation during that time. Certainly not a life or death struggle as the end of the 911.
Every word that he has attributed to Trayvon Martin could easily becoming out of George Zimmerman/s mouth, IMO.
It is a very interesting article. Thanks for bringing it in. It gives me a good idea about the dueling experts that will be involved in this case. I wish
I could hear it. Computer is half-arsed broken, files corrupted, a mess... I am grateful just to still have the net!
