    Where does it say that the body was found 3-4 houses from where "John" lives?

    Is GZ righthanded? If he is, then his right eye would most likely be the dominant. If he put the gun up near his face to sight his target, it would figure that the side of the bridge of his nose would be bruised if his gun recoiled and hit him.

    I've thought that mark could have come from the flashlight, too but because there is a dug out and slightly scabbed bit there would have been GZ DNA on TM's hand, if he had punched him.

    MC in her interview with Serino states that it started where the first 911 caller called from and she says something about five houses down from hers.

    MC says a lot of things. I would like to have an official diagram showing where it all took place.
    John says it was 30 feet from him.

    I apologize for any confusion, I was referring to the chase with flashlight referenced in the bond hearing, not the chase/"fistfight" statement quoted prior. We have yet to see/hear all the witness statements, and this particular one does not seem to be among those released, as I mentioned 1/2 of the prosecution's evidence remains unavailable to us.

    Anyone know how often people who shoot guns break their noses from the kick? I don't know much about gun, but I did shoot handguns on Sunday from the time I was about 8 years old. I haven't touched one in many years, but even when I was 8, I never got hurt by the kick. Worst case, my hands would fly up and I'd miss the target.

    OMG, there are just so many/too many mistakes or missing pieces!

    What this says to me are recorded conversations and comments re: Serino with witnesses tell me that SPD didn't put much detail or effort into the reports because...it seems, they thought this was an open and closed case. IMO!

    Well this was a life and death struggle and not like normal target practice.

    Life and death struggle? So you do think Zimmerman was fighting for his life?

    Wow, me too...now I'm questioning if I read flashlight (LD/ADD is a bummer) at all but I was certain I either heard it verbally or read it...

    UGH! This case will drive us all crazy before it is over.

    Well, at trial there had better be. IMO, of course:)

    Trayvon died. His efforts were futile against the armed man. GZ did not intend on him getting away and he sure didn't.

    O/T anyone having problems with smilies, pages moving around, quotes not posting or the wrong one coming up and words printing differently from your keystrokes?

    Even my computer is screaming about this case.

    If I remember correctly, at the bond hearing Gilbreath said GZ's flashlight was what he would term as a tactical flashlight. Below is the link to the picture of GZ's flashlight. I can plainly see that it is a normal LED flashlight complete with the wrist strap. I bought a package of LED flashlights at Home Depot and it came with at least 2 of the same type and 2 of the keychain ones. So I don't think that this is the type that mounts to a gun especially with the wrist strap.

    I haven't been able to establish whether Zimmerman is right or left handed. But the picture below shows him using a pizza cutter with his left hand, FWIW.

    However, the laceration on the top of Zimmerman's nose doesn't look at all like it came from a punch from a fist, IMO.

    According to the pictures I believe that it happened right behind John's unit which is the 2nd from the end. The end unit has the enclosed porch. So when John says 30ft maybe he meant 30ft in front of him from his bathroom window looking down at them on the ground?

    Anyone notice that the chasing this witness described was in the direction of the T?

    One thing's for certain, it would have to be before they got to THIS spot:

    I wonder how this will play out for a jury that's heard GZ's statements about "walking back to his vehicle", and being attacked by Trayvon, "where the sidewalks meet"?

    I wonder if they'll notice the body, shown above, is already SIXTY THREE FEET away from "where the sidewalks meet"?
