The events leading up to Martin's death started months before, according to de la Rionda. He's playing Zimmerman's initial interview with police where he starts off by telling investigators how the neighborhood has had a lot of crimes recently. On the audio, Zimmerman describes how he decided to start a neighborhood watch program.
"Now, those actions weren't anything sinister or terrible or evil or of ill will," says de la Rionda. "But in this particular case, it led to the death of an innocent 17-year-old boy because this defendant made the wrong assumption. He profiled him as a criminal. He assumed certain things, that Trayvon Martin was up to no good. And that is what led to his death."

De la Rionda shows jurors one of the last photos taken of Martin. He says Zimmerman didn't try to revive Martin after shooting him, like the police officer who gave Martin mouth-to-mouth without a barrier mask.
"Those actions speak volumes of what occurred that evening. ... They speak volumes of this defendant's actions," says de la Rionda.

"A teenager is dead. He is dead through no fault of his own. He is dead because another man made assumptions. That man assumed certain things. He's dead not just because the man made those assumptions -- because he acted upon those assumptions. And unfortunately -- unfortunately because his assumptions were wrong -- Trayvon Benjamin Martin no longer walks on this earth," de la Rionda says.
