Timeline: Rachel Jeantel's story

  • A friend of Trayvon Martin testified about the final moments of Martin's life
  • See how Rachel Jeantel's story fits into the timeline of that night

A key witness for the prosecution testified in the George Zimmerman trial about the phone call she had with Trayvon Martin just moments before his death. During her testimony, 19-year-old Rachel Jeantel said Trayvon Martin told her a man was watching him, while they were talking on the phone just moments before Martin was shot. "He said the man kept watching him. He kept complaining that a man was just watching him."

Jeantel's testimony didn't provide a complete picture of what happened that night, but her story did add to the timeline that includes Zimmerman's call to non-emergency police, neighbors' 911 calls and ultimately, the arrival of police on the scene.
