‘Shock, Denial And Sadness’: Martin’s Brother ‘Didn’t Want To Believe’ It Was Trayvon Screaming On 911 Call

Following the testimony of Trayvon Martin‘s mother Sybrina Fulton Friday morning, his brother Jahvaris Fulton took the stand and also confirmed his belief that it was Trayvon screaming for help in the 911 call placed the night he was killed.

Fulton estimated that he’d heard the tape at least 10 times since his brother was killed. When asked by the prosecution to describe which parts of the tape he recognized as his brother, he responded, “the yelling and the screaming.” He said that he’d heard Trayvon yell while they were growing up, “but not like that.”

During cross-examination by the defense, Mark O’Mara brought up the fact that Fulton was not always so certain that it was Trayvon’s voice yelling on the 911 call. “How do I explain it?” Fulton wondered aloud to O’Mara. “I guess I didn’t want to believe that it was him. So that’s why during that interview I said I wasn’t sure. I guess listening to it was clouded by shock and denial and sadness. I didn’t really want to believe that was him.”
