Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, had the drug THC in his system the night of this death, according to new information obtained by ABC News.
The revelation came as prosecutors in the case prepared to release to the public hundreds of pages of new evidence along with videos and crime scene photos.
THC comes from marijuana use. It showed up in Martin’s blood and urine, according to ABC.
The autopsy also found that Martin was shot from between one and 18 inches away, and that he had an abrasion on one of his knuckles, consistent with him engaging in a fight with George Zimmerman before being shot.
More: Zimmerman told the 911 dispatcher that he suspected Martin had been using drugs.
Zimmerman: We’ve had some break-ins in my neighborhood and there’s a real suspicious guy. It’s Retreat View Circle. The best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around looking about.
911 dispatcher: OK, is he White, Black, or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
