DSC_214, part of the 80 photo set, is of the famous keychain flashlight. The blade of the key is not broken or bent.

DSC_217 and 218 are of the Arizona fruit cocktail can, both from nearly the same angle. No sign of a dent, but there could be one on the other side.

It looks like the defense took special care to photograph the stains near the knees on Martin's pants. DCS_0138 - 43

DSC_0220-21 appear to show the original of the Zimmerman/Singleton map.

DSC_0219 is a closer view of part of the map, showing most of Zimmerman's route.

At last, the button!

DSC_0223

ETA: And the earphones!

DSC_0225

They are small pads, not earplugs. Crump gets another demerit.

ETA 2: They lack a headband, so I wonder how they stay in place.

Note absence of similar stains on Zimmerman's jeans, DSC_0154.

They fit snugly into the outer ear canal (the part you're allowed to clean with a Q-Tip). Or at least relatively snugly. They never seem to be that secure for me.

Then it wouldn't take much to shake them loose. I'm thinking it could happen from Martin throwing a punch, as readily as from someone else pushing him.

Irony alert: The flyer for the Justin Collison case calls Collison 'monster' and 'animal', the same kind of language that has been used against Zimmerman.

ETA: The Collison material suggests that the defense plans to put Zimmerman's character in evidence.

I think that's a good idea. I think the balance of character evidence on Zimmerman himself is in Zimmerman's favor.

The Bashinsky Transfer Method (DSC_179-81) is a test for vaporous lead residue helpful in distance determination. A filter paper dampened with acetic acid is applied to the test area and heated with an iron. The paper is removed and tested with a reagent (sodium rhodizanate), a buffer, then a hydrochloric acid solution. A violet or purple color indicates a postive result for lead.

Since the tests are labeled "control," I have to assume that these were performed on areas of the garmet other than the GSW to test for false positives.

"One (1) red colored 711 brand name lighter, photo button, bag of Skittles, and headphones located in the victim's pockets or in close proximity."

Unfortunately, Stain A (Zimmerman's blood) from ME-8 (Martin's inner sweatshirt) was not photographed. The only two photographs (DSC_193-94) are of the rear of the garment - notice the sample cut out by the FDLE Firearms Lab.

Maybe CST Smith ran out of space when she wrote the log entry.

The lighter looks orange to me.
