Trayvon Martin’s Father: 911 Call Screams Not Trayvon Martin

Lead police investigator Christopher Serino testified today that Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, said that the screams for help captured in a 911 call did not belong to Trayvon Martin.

Serino let Martin listen to the recording before asking, “Is that your son’s voice in the background?” Serino recalled that Martin “looked away, and under his breath, as I interpreted it, said ‘no.’”

The screams for help are audible in the background of a phone call between the police and one of George Zimmerman’s neighbors. A number of witnesses have already testified on the phone recording, some, called by the prosecution, identified the voice as Martin’s, while others said they heard Zimmerman screaming for help.
