Special Prosecutor Angela Corey released another round of evidence in the George Zimmerman case on Thursday morning, a trove that offers a first look at the FBI's civil rights investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The Orlando Sentinel has a summary of what's included in the FBI documents, namely information from interviews with Sanford police officers, Zimmerman's ex-girlfriend (who has accused him of violence), neighbor Frank Taffee, and several witnesses. They also interviewed the man who sold Zimmerman the gun that he used to kill Martin. Zimmerman, who faces a second-degree murder charge, has maintained he shot Martin in self defense.
The release does not include an official conclusion of the investigation, which is being overseen by the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, according to CNN. The investigation is looking to determine whether race played a part in Martin's death.
