George Zimmerman surveillance video helps Trayvon Martin's case, Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton says

SANFORD, Fla. -- For the first time we're hearing from George Zimmerman's father, Robert Zimmerman.  He is speaking out more than a month after his son killed Trayvon Martin.

This as Trayvon's mother says there is more evidence her fight is justified. 

Surveillance video of George Zimmerman in handcuffs the night he shot and killed Travyon Martin recently surfaced.

Zimmerman's legal advisor says his client was bruised and bloodied after, he claims, Martin attacked him.

Police determined that the evidence matched his story, and released Zimmerman without any charges.  However, the newest video of what appears to be an unharmed Zimmerman raises new questions.

"The video is icing on the cake," said Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton.

She says the video supports her cry for an arrest.

"This is not the first part of the evidence that they have had. They have had the 911 tapes and they have also had witnesses."

The funeral director who prepared Trayvon's body told ABC News that Trayvon's hands showed no signs he attacked Zimmerman. But Zimmerman's father told a reporter at WOFL in Orlando a different story.

"He was punched in the nose. Trayvon Martin said something to the effect of 'you're gonna die tonight,'" Robert Zimmerman said, hiding his face.

Another account comes from the teen's girlfriend who spoke with Trayvon minutes before his death.

"Trayvon did not say that at all. The only thing that Trayvon told that man is 'Why are you following me?'" the unidentified friend said.

Plenty of conflicts now find millions demanding the truth.

"This video is clear evidence that there is some problem with this case and he needs to be arrested," Fulton said.

Zimmerman's advisor Craig Sonner said in an interview with another news agency that the new video doesn't help or hurt his case. He said it's "too grainy" to see that Zimmerman was bruised.

Sonner also said the blood from their alleged brawl was cleaned from Zimmerman before police questioned him.
