George Zimmerman's story falls apart

With so much hype surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin, it can be difficult to remain focused on the relevant facts, but this latest development provides some strong evidence that George Zimmerman lied to the police. You can read about the methodology at the link, but this is the fact that matters:

Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman. Another expert contacted by the Sentinel, utilizing different techniques, came to the same conclusion. . . ” you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it’s not Zimmerman,” Owen says, stressing that he cannot confirm the voice as Trayvon’s, because he didn’t have a sample of the teen’s voice to compare.

One thing is clear, if you listen to the 911 audio where the screaming is in the background, the person screaming for help certainly sounds like they’re in fear for their life.
