Name:

Selma Mora (W16) (Lamilla) is the roommate of Witness #5 Mary Cutcher.

Witness Summary:

She heard a kid crying (she sounds it out), and then she heard a shot, but was thinking maybe it was some kids playing. She went out to the porch. She saw a guy laying on the ground and could see another guy on top of him. She asked “what’s going on?” no answer, “what’s wrong with you, what’s going on?” The guy on top looked at her, and finally said “Call the police.” At that moment her roommate (Witness #5, Mary Cutcher) came back and told her to come inside.

    “[R]esidents who lived nearby the shooting scene [...] told largely different stories. Jonathan Good said he saw Trayvon on top of and striking Zimmerman moments before the teen was shot. Selma Mora, who lived a couple of houses down from Good, said a person straddling on top of another person told her to call police. Minutes later, the same person who was on top, Zimmerman, was on his feet after a gunshot, Mora said.”

    THESE STORIES ARE NOT CONFLICTING. YOU SLIGHTLY CHANGED MORA’S TESTIMONY, ENOUGH TO LEAD TO ANOTHER CONCLUSION. Selma Mora ‘heard a shot, but was thinking maybe it was some kids playing. She went out to the porch. She saw a guy laying on the ground and could see another guy on top of him. She asked “what’s going on?” no answer, “what’s wrong with you, what’s going on?” The guy on top looked at her, and finally said “Call the police.”’

    Jonathan Good witnessed the scene before the shooting. Selma Mora witnessed it afterwards, and saw Zimmerman on top, trying to restrain Martin, whom he thought — as we know from police — was still alive.

    I am appalled at how their concerns about their safety was dismissed.  These women had a real concern about the killer among them.  Out of all the witnesses, I think that they are the most credible.  For one, they were concerned about their safety 2) their story has not changed at all and 3) they ended up going on TV concerned that there was no justice for the slain kid.

    Problem: When they ask the investigator questons, they make further statements that appear to be revised. They state the age of the deceased for one thing. They would not have known that that evening. Another problem for the prosecutor: They did not see where the fight started. They seem to assume based on potentially later conversations with their neighbors. How many shots did they hear? The broken English of the witness in the first tape says we heart not 2 shots but I am not clear on how many shots since her interpretor did not clarify that for her/us. When I listened to one of the 911 calls from the neighbors, I hear at least 2 shots.

      What does her BROKEN ENGLISH have to do with it?

        Didn’t mean to offend. All I was saying is that it was difficult to understand what she meant to say. If it was clear to you, please explain it to me. If it had nothing to do with it, why not explain what you understood instead?

          She said they heard ONE shot, NOT TWO.  They heard another neighbor say there were 2 shots, but they were clarifying they only heard the ONE shot.

       The age of Trayvon was not mentioned by them until March 1st.  By then I would assume that everyone in the neighborhood knew the age of the kid.  If I am not mistaken, they were the ones that Serino were telling George was giving a different story than what he was telling during one of his interviews.
