Jurors from the George Zimmerman murder trial are still feeling the wrath from their decision to acquit Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. And the thing is, it may be difficult for them to solicit any sympathy from a still angry public.
Identified only as “Maddy,” the only minority juror on the case gave an interview to Les Trent of ”Inside Edition” that will air on Thursday. Shortly after the trial concluded, Maddy lost friends who were upset by the verdict and lost her job at a nursing home, according to an Inside Edition press release.
Claiming her family now eats on the floor following the sale of their possessions in order to make ends meet, Maddy goes on to say her family is days away from moving into a homeless shelter, as they can no longer afford the mortgage on their home.
“Emotionally, mentally, physically, I’m so drained. I can’t stop thinking about the case,” Maddy said in the release. “I have a heart. I got to hold the gun that killed this boy. I saw pictures I didn’t need to see.”
Maddy also told Trent she questions her reluctant decision to acquit Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.
“We all know who’s guilty,” Maddy said. “George Zimmerman thinks he didn’t do anything wrong.”
Maddy previously told ABC’s Robin Roberts that Zimmerman “got away with murder.”
“… At the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with. [But] the law couldn’t prove it,” Maddy told Roberts.
