For those who are quite familiar with the story, has there been any information released as to how Zimmerman ultimately came in contact with Martin? I've followed up on a couple of links but so far I haven't come across a clear answer of how their paths ultimately crossed. The Zimmerman phone call ends with him following Martin, as he was told he didn't have to do. Did Zimmerman eventually catch up to him and engage? I assume as such, but I know better than to always assume things in cases like this.

Further, I undoubtedly believed the screams heard on the phone call were that of Martin, until I read a few comments from folks who believed the screams were actually coming from Zimmerman. Reading further, that's still a hang up with police, correct? They think it might be Zimmerman yelling for help? Is there a way they'll be able to tell who it is yelling, definitively?

If that's indeed Martin yelling, I have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that a random neighborhood watch volunteer can become suspicious of anyone he feels, pursue them, then ultimately become a part of a scuffle that leads to the shooting death of an innocent victim. Yes, a very large issue is the fact that Zimmerman's initial suspicion may have stemmed from the fact that Martin's black. However, race aside, what Zimmerman did appears to be wrong on thirty seven thousand different levels.

why would a dude with a pistol be screaming for help? the kid had no weapons, was smaller then the shooter.... I don't see why he would be screaming for help, those screams were from a dying man
