The Scheme Team
On Sunday March 18th 2012 The Scheme Team reports Tracy Martin *found* a person who talked to Trayvon Martin just prior to his death. (on line phone records)
On Monday March 19th 2012 The Scheme Team together with ABC’s Matt Gutman set up, and recorded, an audio call with the person Tracy Martin found. A girl, Witness #8, they called her “Dee Dee”.
On Tuesday March 20th 2012 The Scheme Team, Primarily Benjamin Crump, introduced Witness #8 to the media. Calling her his girlfriend, she talked to Trayvon for 400 minutes on the day of his death Sunday February 26th, she talked to Trayvon just minutes before he was shot, and she was talking to Trayvon when he encountered George Zimmerman.
Crump, consistently called her “a minor”
ABC’s Matt Gutman described her as a 16-year-old girlfriend.
On Wednesday March 21st 2012 The Scheme Team, Primarily Benjamin Crump, went on NBC’s Today Show and discussed Witness #8, Dee Dee, the 16-year-old teenager.
On March 27th the 16-year-old witness, was refusing to give any statement to Sanford, or FDLE law enforcement. Benjamin Crump stated she would only talk to the FBI and her parents were concerned about her identity.
On Monday April 2nd an 18-year-old, young woman, showed up to give a sworn statement to the prosecution.
The Scheme Team has refused to give the name, or address of the 16-year-old person they interviewed on March 19th.
The prosecution, the State, and the Scheme Team, refuse to give witness #8 address, or identifiable information to the Defense team for the 18-year-old they interviewed on April 2nd.
So the defense moved to compel discovery.
Now the Scheme Team has lawyered up and says on March 19th they never asked her, their witness, for her full name or address before taking her statement.
The Scheme Team didn’t ask the name or address of their witness, (they claim) but they did ask her parents for permission to talk to her, and they, along with ABC News did know and report she was 16-years-old.
And, yet, family attorney Benjamin Crump never talked to her again.
So who was on the phone for the mystery March 19th interview (Dee Dee) ?
And who was the other older person who showed up on April 2nd to talk to the State?
