Bloody Zimmerman Appears in Color Photo
George Zimmerman is shown on the night of Feb. 26, 2012.   (

George Zimmerman's bloodied face and swollen nose can be clearly seen in a photo taken the night of Trayvon Martin's death and released by his defense team yesterday. The photo is a high-res, color version of the grainy, black-and-white image that was released months ago, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Zimmerman was sitting in the back of a police cruiser after shooting the 17-year-old when a police officer took the image. It is part of the most recent batch of evidence prosecutors turned over to the defense, and the defense plans to release the rest of that evidence soon. (More George Zimmerman stories.)
