George Zimmerman, the admitted shooter of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, has not surfaced since the story began grabbing national headlines, with even his lawyer admitting to Anderson Cooper last night that he had not seen Zimmerman in person. Finally, Zimmerman has shown signs of life, in a voicemail left to neighbor Frank Taaffe, thanking him for vouching for him on television.
Taaffe told the media the voicemail was from Friday, and came from an unknown number. Its contents:
Hey Mr. Taaffe, this is George. Um, first and foremost, I wanted to say I am very sorry for the loss of your son, and, um, I can’t imagine what you must be going through. Um, secondly, I wanted to thank you for doing everything you’ve been doing. Um, I know you don’t have to, and I appreciate it, and you’re truly setting an example for me for the future of, uh, doing the right thing even when it’s tough, and, uh, I appreciate it. I’ll talk to you soon. Thanks.
