False Report or Disappearing 911 Call?

This is what we heard: ABC7 Chicago Acknowledges Existence of 911 Call by Travyon Martin During Attack.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This video from ABC7 Chicago has now been pulled down. It is difficult to get accurate media reports, which only highlights the need for a full investigation.

As far as we have been able to ascertain, the original report by ABC7 may have been false, as there seems to be no other evidence that this call existed.

We apologize for any confusion we may have caused during this already-complicated and highly emotional investigation.

*This information has yet to be confirmed by other news sources. (12:00 pm 3.27.12)

  1. You should remove this story, change the title, or put up Huge Red Blicking disclaimer that this is not a known fact and there is no other source reporting this. This really hurts your credibility.

    I say this as someone who thinks Zimmerman should have been (and still should be) arrested and the situation thoughtly investigated.

  2. Very strange how this story is magically disappearing with no explanation.

  3. Joanna Schroeder says:

    Yeah, I can’t seem to find any other news confirming this, we’re merely quoting ABC on this.

    But I also can’t find a retraction from them on the story.

  4. MichelleG says:

    It’s called damage control.

    Here’s a link to the Trayvon Martin 911 Calls:

  5. Anthony Zarat says:

    Checked. Can’t find any news about this. It would be distrubing if true, but I don’t think it is true.

  6. misinformation. please use your head before posting.

    • I don't know says:

      And you know that how?

      • Well seeing as that Trayvons family has his cell phone and his call records, don’t you think they would have released this information out for everyone to see?

        Btw, I’m not defending Zimmerman.

  7. This is the only mention of Martin making a 911 call. I’d be cautious about the report. Chicago news might have misspoken.

  8. I can’t believe it’s been a month and we’re only now hearing about this.
