But in the Feb. 29 recordings, Serino openly doubted the story.
"You ever hear of Murphy's Law," asks Serino. "This person was not doing anything bad. You know the name of the person that died?"
"Tavon," responds Zimmerman. "Trayvon," Serino shot back. "Trayvon Martin" responds Zimmerman. "Trayvon Benjamin Martin. ... He was 17. ... A kid with a future," said Serino. "In his possession we found a can of ice tea and a bag of Skittles. And $40 in cash. Not the goon."
Serino then questioned the extent of Zimmerman's injuries, telling him that despite the broken nose and two lacerations on the back of his head, his injuries did not seem consistent with someone involved in a life-or-death struggle.
"You wanted to catch him. You wanted to catch the bad guy," said Serino, aggressively.
