According to funeral director Richard Kurtz of Roy Mizell and Kurtz Funeral Home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin did not have any cuts or bruises on his hands to indicate that he was in a fight with George Zimmerman on the night that the neighborhood watch captain murdered him.
Speaking exclusively to HLN’s Nancy Grace, Kurtz said that when he prepared Martin’s body the only injury that was discernible was a gunshot wound to Martin’s upper-chest area.
Though Kurtz made it clear that he was not a forensic specialist, he shared that he had prepared the bodies of many homicide victims and the more he learned about the misconduct and negligence in Trayvon’s case the more he felt compelled to speak out.
This report comes in the wake of the revealing police surveillance video obtained by ABC News that shows Zimmerman in good spirits as he chats with officers, and more importantly, with no discernible injuries — even though police reports claim that he suffered trauma to his nose (with Zimmerman claiming that it was broken), and had blood on his face and the back of his head. There were also no signs that his head had been “repeatedly slammed into the ground” by Martin.
As more and more evidence comes to light in this case, one has to wonder to what lengths the Sanford Police Department has gone to conceal the truth about Trayvon’s murder.
