LLMPapa’s Response to Knox & Associates
Using a simple ruler…
Professor Letterman:LLMPapa produces a new video regarding the alignment of the bullet hole in Trayvon Martin’s chest and the aligned holes in the two sweatshirts that he was wearing.
Pipitone’s news feature details some of the conclusions I made in my recent book, Intermediate Range: The Forensic Evidence in the Killing of Trayvon Martin. Among the findings detailed in the report are discrepencies in George Zimmerman’s time line of the events, a finding that Trayvon Martin had ample opportunity to arrive at Brandy Green’s townhome before Zimmerman’s call to police ended, and a finding that sag in Martin’s hoodie and underlying sweatshirt provide physical evidence that supports the conclusion that, at the time Zimmerman fired the fatal shot, Martin was hovering over him.
While most objective observers have praised these findings, I have received sharp criticism from both camps: those who support Zimmerman’s bid for freedom and those who believe he should be imprisoned for murder.
Among those who argue in favor of Zimmerman’s conviction is an amateur videographer who, cloaked in anonymity, refers to himself on YouTube only as “LLMPapa”.
While many have praised LLMPapa for his analysis, as of yet, LLMPapa’s findings have gone largely unchallenged. In the world of anonymous Internet video posting, such challenges are typically pooh-poohed by the recipient and his supporters in rambling, profanity-laced diatribes typed from the comfort and protection of one’s living room. In court, however–the venue I am accustomed to working in–one must actually withstand often rigorous cross-examination and scrutiny of one’s work. Welcome to the world of forensic science, LLMPapa.
LLMPapa’s bullet hole misalignment theory is, well, full of holes. To understand where he went wrong, let’s start with the measurements–the ones he references in his video (“Cardboard and Bullshit, Part Two”).
The autopsy report indicates that the bullet entrance wound to Trayvon Martin’s chest was 17.5 inches below the top of the head:
