Didn't GZ say he didn't know that his bullet had struck Trayvon and he didn't find out he died till he got to the station that night?
My recollection is that all the discovery has been vague about when GZ found out that Martin was dead. I think he realized TM was hit by the time he spoke to Manalo (W-13), because he told Manalo that he shot him. I don't think anything in the discovery indicates whether GZ knew TM was dead by the time GZ was removed from the scene.
When TM was pronounced, GZ would have been sitting in Smith's patrol car on RVC, in front of W-19's, 2821 RVC. When the yellow blanket was put over the body, I think GZ would have been standing by the car while the SFD checked him.
FDLE asked all the SFD people about statements that were made. All agreed that there wasn't much conversation, and none about what had happened, really none not related to the examination.
Come to think of it, I think TM being pronounced was in the radio traffic, but I'm pretty sure coded. Smith might have known, but there's nothing in his reports or testimony about him knowing that, much less telling GZ.
I recall that in the first SPD interview, Singleton referred to TM being 'shot', never 'killed'.
When Serino on direct told the story about GZ realizing TM was dead, I was typing up something else and missed most of it. I didn't catch when it would have happened.
I've always found it curious that TS Smith didn't check TM to see if he was alive. Smith had him at gunpoint at 7:19. Ayala and Raimondo didn't arrive behind Retreat View until 7:22.
That's 3 minutes Smith didn't check the body? In another of his reports, I remember him saying he didn't. Did it take that long for him to secure GZ?
One of the other officers said, I think in his trial testimony, said Smith still had GZ at gunpoint when he arrived. I don't recall if it was Raimondo or Ayala. I recall feeling surprised when I heard that.
