A brown plastic bag under the bushes
OK, I was hoping I wouldn't have to post about this but no one brought it up and the other "evidence" post was already out of control, so I am starting a new one.
I read ALL of the documents released this last week concerning evidence found and recorded at the scene of the Zimmerman-Martin shooting and the reports filed by the responding officers and the autopsy reports. I also watched the videos from the 7-11. Those make things much more clear than the opinion and supposition that has been floating around. I happened to see the video again a short time ago. I watched the clerk place the can and a small box (not a bag) of candy in a brown plastic bag apparently after Treyvon indicated that he wanted the stuff in the bag. The clerk appeared to offer the bag to him first. Then I backed the video up and watched it again because it reminded me of something in the released documents.
In a report filed by a responding officer, after Treyvon's body was turned over, and the officer raised Treyvon's hoodie, he found the candy box and tea can in the pockets which interfered with raising the hoodie and sweatshirt. He removed the can and placed it on Treyvon's chest while he checked the wound. The can was left on Trevon's chest(seems awkward to me). Nothing was said about the plastic bag.
In another report, from an officer collecting evidence, a brown plastic bag was found under a bush. Nothing more was said about the bag and the report went on about other pieces of possible evidence found in and around the scene.
What happened to the bag from the 7-11? Was there something in the bag that was found under the bush? Why was it considered evidence? Most of the other items collected were self explanatory but the bag is curious to me. Does anyone want to conjecture?
