The plot thickens:
It now appears that there were two investigations going on that night into this killing.
One by homicide investigator Chris Serino who was the lead officer on the case, who filed an affidavit February 26th stating that he did not believe Zimmerman's account of the shooting and recommended charging the 28-year-old with manslaughter. And was dealing directly with the duty assistant Attorney General at the prosecutor's office.
And a second investigation at a higher level between Sanford police chief Bill Lee, along with Capt. Robert O'Connor, the investigations supervisor,and State Attorney Norman Wolfinge, that was being conducted separate from Lead Investigator Chris Serino's investigation.
What of course is interesting is that 2 of the 3 that made the decision, not to prosecute and to release Zimmerman are no longer on the case.
