New developments in the Trayvon Martin case thanks to forensic audio detectives and voice detection software called Easy Voice Biometrics.
If you have been following the case of the shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin, you are probably familiar with the audio tape from a 9-11 call made by a woman who heard a commotion outside her residence. It’s a telling piece of audio in that it captures the precious moments prior to the shooting, as well as the fatal shot itself. Now forensic audio experts are weighing in on who they think the voice belonged to calling for help.
The tests concluded that it’s not the voice of Mr. Zimmerman, Tom Owen, of Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence said.
The software compared that audio to Zimmerman’s voice. It returned a 48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this quality, he’d expect higher than 90 percent.
“As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it’s not Zimmerman,” Owen says, stressing that he cannot confirm the voice as Trayvon’s, because he didn’t have a sample of the teen’s voice to compare.
Another expert agreed saying he is certain the voice comes from that of a younger male is definitely not George Zimmerman’s. Read the full story at CBS News.
