    Di Maio testifies he agrees that #zimmerman gun was against clothing of #trayvonmartin when he was shot.

    Di Maio on how long #trayvonmartin may have been alive after shot: "You can be alive and unconscious...They're 2 separate things."

    Di Maio says #Zimmermanon9 's gun was against Martin's clothing but it was 2-4" away from the skin. The clothing was 2-4" from the body.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 8m
    Di Maio says the focus should be whether #Zimmermanon9 's account matches the physical evidence using firearms and wound evidence.

    Di Maio testifies that it's his opinion that muzzle of #zimmerman gun 2-4 inches away from #trayvonmartin skin when it was shot.

    Dr. states he has made studies of how far weapon is from wound and how the powder left indicates this.

    Di Maio says "it does not appear so" to whether the shot that killed #trayvonmartin was "straight on".

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    Di Maio says the bullet went from Martin's left front to his right lung. It was not a straight on shot. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    Di Maio says #Zimmermanon9 's account of the shooting is consistent with the evidence of Martin's wound.

    [That Trayvon was leaning over GZ]

    On the question of TM still being alive after the shot, the Dr. tells West that if I grabbed you now and ripped out your heart, you could stand there and talk to me for a few seconds because the brain is not dead yet. It's different for some people who may drop at once.

    For TM, a healthy young man who just engaged in a struggle, the heart rate was up, every time the heart beats the blood comes out of the wound, if he loses a tablespoon of blood, in 15 seconds he loses a lot of blood, he will be dead in 1-3 minutes, would be conscious a shorter time.

    Dr. Di Maio says someone can talk and walk a minimum of 10-15 seconds after heart stops because of brain's oxygen reserve. #Zimmermanon9

    Di Maio says Martin's wet clothing, the drink can in his sweatshirt pouch and leaning over #Zimmermanon9 is consistent with evidence.

    Di Maio says however that "some people lose consciousness immediately" after being shot. But believes #trayvonmartin could have moved arms

    West asks can you have bruising on TMs hands after his heart stops, no because there is no blood pressure.

    Dr. Di Maio says Dr. Bao could have determined whether Martin's hands were bruised from punching by looking internally 1/2 #Zimmermanon9

    West begins asking about GZs injuries and what injuries his head being hit on concrete would cause. Concrete doesn't yield. May cause mild concussion, stunning to the brain, may not be a significant disability to the brain but depends how susceptible the person is to the injury and how hard you are hit, at a minimum you are stunned. When you have lacerations there is trauma.


    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    Dr. Di Maio says if the head hits concrete the concrete does not yield the head yields. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    Dr. Di Maio says head trauma could cause internal bleeding which could be deadly. #Zimmermanon9

    Asks has dr. seen pictures of GZs 2 lacerations on the back of the head...yes, shows pictures..looking for pictures...can't find the one he wants...asks do you see 2 separate areas of swelling? yes....it's not that easy to get lacerations when they bang their head...caused by direct perpendicular impact, also if hit at an angle and the head slides....

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    When impact is harder.. Every day bumps to the head usually don't cause visible bloody wounds. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    He says head impact could stun someone.. and cause mild concussion.. He says cuts indicate trauma because they happen 1/2 #Zimmermanon9

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 3m
    Di Maio: "Stunning goes to concussion to getting worse...The thing is when you have lacerations there's been some trauma."

    West finds his pictures..Dr. says he sees swelling, a little valley and then more swelling and the laceration. Is it a significant injury? It varies for different children. Has seen children with no marks but have skull fracture. The presence of the injury on outside, does not mean there is not more injury inside. Dr. more or less agrees, can get injury without marks.

    DLR gets dr. to agree you can hit somebody and not get any bruises...GZ could have hit TM and not have bruises also...dr. agrees...

    TMs hands were not cut open to see if there were internal bruises..

    Dr. seems to get a little confused with DLR questions...with GZ injuries, parametics are there to treat people, not diagnosing...would have been better if he had gone to ER..was hard to tell from pictures the size of lacerations due to blood on them.

    Di Maio is repeating that the shooting itself was consistent with #Zimmermanon9 's account. He says there could be other possibilities.

    DLR throught...West up for redirect...asking dr. about his notes and the photos used to make his evaluation...to determine if what GZ said was consistent with the physical evidence. Was it necessary to interview each witness? no, he's not going to base anything on a witness because they are wrong all the time...

    West is describing what various witnesses said and wants to ask if dr. ....something..judge says it is up to the jury to decide if they believe what a witness says...he's leading...he asks again of dr. if an eye witness no matter how well meaning can be wrong..yes...

    West goes to what John Good said...objection, sustained...tells what he said, position of TM straddling and striking at time of shot, feasible/possible, but dr. said he would not have used that in his opinion, he has to use physical evidence...

    West asks about 2 lacerations on back of GZs head, 2 blows, yes...was consistent with GZs head, objections, leading, rephrase....says he is trying to figure out a way to ask about tree branches...dr. said he saw none when he looked at pictures...the cement is more possible to him...

    Di Maio said John Good's account of the shooting is consistent with #Zimmermanon9 's and the evidence but he focused on Zimmerman's.

    West asking about GZ being able to walk and talk, doesn't mean he does not have a concussion...objection, leading, rephrase....does consequent of concussion show up later, no, would be there to begin with, the reason sports like to have drs. right there...does it hurt when you get a punch in the nose or head hit on concrete? of course...would the person know it was life-threatening? no they feel they are OK, that's the reason the LE should have taken GZ to ER, if he had died at the station they could be sued....

    West asking dr. if someone is being hit, can they say, I can take 3 more of these hits....objection, leading...sustained

    West asking about packaging of the evidence, should be air dryed, not in plastic...is it subjecting evidence to that packaging would promote degradation? yes..

    West...DLR has mentioned if TM had put his hand over GZs nose, he would have had blood on his hand, yes...does dr. know when the nose started bleeding, may depend on the position? yes

    West of absence of finding blood does not mean it was present...3 hours after his death that TMs body was transported.....dr. says also depends on how wrapped, agrees can depend on how hands were handled or weather, rain...that is why the forensic pathologist should follow the body and clothing all the way, monitor what assistants are doing...another question causes as sidebar....

    DLR asking the dr. about procedures of how the body was transported, clothes removed, he wouldn't know since he was not there..he did rely on the MEs reports because he had no choice...

    He didn't rely on the witnesses because he was trying to take GZs statement and see if the physical evidence validated it...the other witnesses were all over the place...

    West on last question, the fact that you did not use Good's statement does not mean he did not hear GZs head being hit on the sidewalk...no

    Bonaparte days the tape if 911 call w/screams was played multiple times at request of Martin family. Said was done as courtesy.

    Did he discuss with LE before playing tapes for family. Chief Lee was informed of it. Purpose was to let the family hear the tapes before they were released to public..

    Meeting was not recorded. He was in and out of room and does not recall if mayor was there the entire time. It was not city attorneys but family attorneys who were present.

    DLR....bottom line..you thought this was the decent thing to do for the family...yes, that's what they thought...

    Sanford city manager Norton Bonaparte says he doesn't remember exactly how he had the family listen to the 911 tapes. #Zimmermanon9

    Bill S....one could conclude that the police chief was excluded and all of the family being together was not good for state's determination...could have been listener bias with the parents present. Bonaparte was shooting daggers at OM and not much better with state...he did not want to testify...

    Dr. was good witness for defense, but state can point out he is a hired opinion and has worked on other cases where people found guilty...they have witnesses who conflict what he says...but defense is looking not to prove their case but to bring out conflicts with the state case for reasonable doubt...

    Court in recess...
