ORLANDO, Fla. Trayvon Martin's autopsy results were among a large amount of evidence released by prosecutors on Thursday as part of the second-degree murder case against the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot him in February.
Martin’s autopsy shows evidence of marijuana in his urine and blood.
Also in the package is a photo of suspect George Zimmerman with a bloody nose taken the night of the fight. A paramedic report says Zimmerman had a 1-inch laceration on his head and forehead abrasion.
Zimmerman has claimed self-defense and said he only fired because the unarmed teenager attacked him. He is awaiting trial and has pleaded not guilty.
The photo and reports were among an evidence package that also includes 911 calls, video and numerous other documents. The package was received by defense lawyers earlier this week and released to the media on Thursday.
A police report says Martin had $40.15, Skittles candy, a red lighter, headphones and a photo pin in his pocket. He had been shot once in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.
