Martin Family, with Attorney Benjamin Crump and Black Advocates wait to hear if George Zimmerman would be arrested. Did the Scheme Work? April 11th 2012
The Discovery Evidence in case of State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman clearly shows that Witness #8 “DeeDee” the mysterious girlfriend of Trayvon Martin is 18-years-old.
[pg #1 F-2] Witness #8 is 18-years-old and was 18 at the time of Benjamin Crump’s interview with her on 3/19/12 according to her sworn statement to State Prosecutors on 4/2/12.
Yet Trayvon Family of Attorneys reported to the public and to the media that DeeDee, known as Witness #8 (W8) was 16-years-old on 3/20/12 ? The family lawyers together with the State Prosecution Team continued to lie, deceive, and attempted to hide the truth.
Why is this important? Well, for a couple of reasons. Not the least of which is the conspiracy to deceive -AND- intentional fabrication of evidence or malicious prosecution.
- Police Chief Bill Lee Said he had “no cause to arrest Zimmerman,” nor “any evidence to dispute Zimmerman’s accounts” on Tuesday March 13th.
- Together with the professional race-baiting class, on Friday March 16th, the Trayvon Martin crew of family attorneys (aka The Scheme Team) pressured Sanford Mayor Triplett and got the 911 call tapes Police Chief Lee had requested to remain sealed evidence as the investigation continued.
- Subsequently Benjamin Crump said he “found out about DeeDee” through Tracy Martin (Trayvon’s dad) on Sunday “night” March 18th.
- The following day, Crump produced DeeDee in voice only. Using ABC’s Matt Gutman on Monday night March 19th. (The interview where the reported rules, from Gutman himself, were only Ben Crump was allowed to ask questions *cough* ‘plausible deniability’ *cough* risk avoidance *cough*).
- Benjamin Crump then held a press conference with all the media on Tuesday March 20th, where he introduced the devastated girlfriend DeeDee ear-witness.
A full week later on March 27th Florida Attorney Pam Bondi was stating clearly that “DeeDee” had refused interviews with authorities as noted in this, now released because it was forced to sunlight, transcript.
Pam Bondi: Well, what we’ve done is appoint a special prosecutor. And that’s what she’s doing. Conducting a thorough investigation because we need to get Trayvon’s girlfriend to cooperate which I don’t know if was happening previously. And they may have had good reason for that. But she’s cooperating now.
However, as previously reported by the former prosecuting State Attorney, Police Chief Bill Lee and the media, a Grand Jury was already impaneled to seat on April 10th.
A grand jury was already scheduled for April 10th when on Thursday March 22nd Police Chief Bill Lee, was forced to, pressured to, voluntarily stepped down.
The following day on Friday March 23rd the media was reporting the first stories of DeeDee now being subpoenaed to appear.
RadarOnline - The Florida State Attorney’s Office has prepared a subpoena for Trayvon Martin‘s girlfriend, who was on the phone with him in the moments before the unarmed African American teen was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, to appear in front a grand jury that will be impaneled on April 10, to determine if the neighborhood watch captain should be charged with murder, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. [...]
Trayvon’s girlfriend has been told that the Florida State Attorney’s Office has prepared a subpoena for her to appear in front of the grand jury. She has hired a lawyer to advise her and make sure that her rights are protected. Her attorney has told prosecutors that she is ready to appear and is looking forward to telling the grand jury what really happened on February 26,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com
But also on Friday March 23rd a new special prosecutor Angela Corey was assigned to the case who replaced Norm Wolfinger:
FLORIDA – A conservative, hard-nosed state attorney, Angela Corey, has been appointed special prosecutor to take over the investigation of the Trayvon Martin slaying. Originally the case was in the hands of Brevard/Seminole County State Attorney Norm Wolfinger, who had convened a grand jury for April 10. But the growing national and now international attention given the shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old spurred Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Atty. Gen. Pam Bondi to turn the case over to Corey. It’s unclear whether the grand jury will now meet.
Subsequently, after March 23rd something changed with the new STAR WITNESS. Because while DeeDee might have been “looking forward to testifying” according to her attorney [Daryl Parks], she was still refusing to talk to investigators as noted by Bondi a full four days later.
Benjamin Crump “officially” introduced DeeDee, via the media, on Tuesday March 20th. On Thursday March 22nd Wolfinger subpoenaed DeeDee for the Grand Jury scheduled for April 10th. On Friday March 23rd Wolfinger was replaced with Corey. On Tuesday March 27th DeeDee was still refusing to be interviewed.
After Angela Corey took over the case (March 23rd), and sometime after March 27th, DeeDee became more open to being interviewed/questioned.
We now know who was present during that initial interview with “DeeDee” on April 2nd.
The interview took place at Trayvon Martin’s mothers apartment in Fort Lauderdale. Sybrina Fulton, Tacy Martin, Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda, Benjamin Crump, Natalie Jackson, Daryl Parks were all there. “DeeDee” had to be tracked down by investigators and brought to the apartment. Details Below from Discovery:
DeeDee was, according to her own attorney on March 23rd, willing to testify to the Grand Jury already scheduled for April 10th. But once Angela Corey got the case (same day) things changed. A different approach was now possible….
On the possibility that there might not have to be a grand jury hearing on April 10 Daryl Parks spoke to Joe Madison (talk radio) March 28th:
Attorney Daryl Parks: “…we believe there might be a better due course, legally…[Florida State Attorney] Angela Corey—once she takes the statements of the witnesses she has the power to do what’s called a ‘direct filing.’ And that circumvents [having to] go to the grand jury.”
The family wants Zimmerman to have his day in court, so they can have theirs:
Daryl Parks: “We are pushing for the day that we see George Zimmerman suffer what you see many others in our community suffer—he [should be] arrested, handcuffed and brought before a judge to face his day. We want him to have his day in court so we can have our day in court and watch him.”
(correction from earlier) DeeDee interviewed with State Prosecutors on April 2nd (as above) and again on
April 8th , August 2nd only this time they flew her to Jacksonville, she returned home April 9th August 3rd.
On Monday April 9th, the Grand Jury was cancelled. On Tuesday April 10th the charges for arrest were processed for George Zimmerman the public was notified and a major press conference delivered by Angela Corey carried live on TV. Second Degree murder charges were filed.
On Wednesday April 11th George Zimmerman was arrested.
What was it about DeeDee, and about that early April interview, that made the prosecution pull the plug on the Grand Jury? Could it have anything to do with the fact that who they “sold” DeeDee to be in the public, “16-year-old girlfriend” (March 20th), did not match up with the person they all now knew DeeDee to be (April 2nd)? 18-Year-Old? or is she…..
ABC News was there exclusively as the 16-year-old girl told Crump about the last moments of the teenager’s life. Martin had been talking to his girlfriend all the way to the store where he bought Skittles and a tea. The phone was in his pocket and the earphone in his ear, Crump said. - Matt Gutman
Attorneys’ Benjamin Crump, Natalie Jackson, Jasmine Rand and Daryl Parks also falsely identified DeeDee as Trayvon’s 16-year-old girlfriend. Here - and Here – and Here – misleading the public and the courts.
The Global Grind also reported the details on behalf of the family:
The 16-year-old girl who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin in his final moments has come forward, saying that she has not been interviewed by Sanford police – despite Trayvon telling her he was being followed.
[...] Trayvon’s 16-year-old girlfriend, who is only being identified as DeeDee, recounted the final moments of her conversation with Trayvon before the line went dead. (article continues)
But she’s not Sixteen, she’s Eighteen. So what gives? What else are they lying about?
And why did the State of Florida never correct the hundreds of interviews given by the Trayvon Family and their Legal Representatives to both media, and law enforcement, where they claimed “DeeDee” was a 16-year-old minor?

Something is SERIOUSLY rotten here. Perhaps it is not illegal to lie to the public, and perhaps it is not illegal for the media to assist in lying to the public, but it cannot be legal to lie to State Prosecuting authorities, manipulate evidence, and manufacture a falsehood just to get a person convicted of a crime.
Or, perhaps that should be a question: “in the new Obama-America is it” ?
March 20th 2012 – ON CNN - CNN legal analyst, Sunny Hostin joining, me now with more on all of this. Why don’t we go ahead and start with Trayvon’s cell phone friend? I understand you actually have a copy of her sworn affidavit. Give us the details, Sunny. We’ll kind of unfold the conversation from there.
SUNNY HOSTIN, CNN LEGAL ANALYST: Good morning, Kyra. I do not have a copy, though, of the sworn affidavit, but I did speak to one of the Martin family attorneys this morning for at least half an hour and she and I discussed this phone call.
Apparently Trayvon Martin on that night had been trading phone calls with a 16-year-old friend, a girl, and as they traded phone calls, one of the last phone calls, was at about 7:04.
Trayvon Martin told his friend that someone was following him. He was nervous. He was concerned. She explained to him that he should run. He told her he was not going to run, but he was going to walk quickly in an effort to get away from the person that he thought was pursuing him.
Well, Kyra, she then heard Trayvon Martin say to someone, “Why are you following me?”
That person then said to Trayvon Martin, “Who are you? Why are you here? What is your name?”
At that point at about 7:16 p.m., she says that the phone call dropped, that she felt that someone had pushed or tackled Trayvon and, at that point, the phone call dropped.
She tried to call him several times after that, no response, and, according to the timeline that the police are giving us, someone from the police department did arrive at about 7:17, just a minute later.
PHILLIPS: OK. So, Sunny, from what you just told us and what we’re learning about this phone call with this lady friend and what she is saying happened and how this al unfolded that night, still, how does this play a part in the number of investigations that are going on now because George Zimmerman has not been charged?
He says he was acting in self-defense. So, how does this play into the many ongoing investigations?
HOSTIN: Well, certainly this is very frustrating for the family. That is what the family attorney told me. They are pleased that so many people have stepped forward and are investigating this case, but she just told me, the family attorney, that the state attorney’s office in Florida has sent this to the grand jury.
That will happen on April 10th, so that is breaking news, Kyra. Our understanding is that the grand jury will be looking at this case on April 10th and, so, the case certainly is moving forward in that regard. (continue reading historical transcript from CNN)
Well if, on 3/20/12 the female Martin Family Attorney (either Natalie Jackson or Jasmine Rand) was conveying a frustration the case was going to a Grand Jury, then perhaps that is why the need to manufacture evidence and avoid the potential dismissal, or GJ nullification. Perhaps that is why they needed to make up a “reason for an arrest”? They did not want to risk the Grand Jury.
This CNN interview, along with dozens of others, provides no escape for the lie about DeeDee that the attorneys apparently coordinated.
