I printed the report and studied it closely, and I used this report everytime I needed a quote in my comments. In a reaction to one of my comments, the commenter referred to the police report with this link.
I clicked on the link, and I immediately noticed that the visual of the report was different than the one I had been looking at.
So I printed the second report to try to find the differences.
This is what I found.
The CNN link contained two partial police reports, one printed on 2/28 and the second printed on 3/6. The report printed on 2/28 did not have the narrative that corroborated Zimmerman's statements.
Update: Please read this diary, exposing gaps in the 911 reporting and zooming in on prior engagements between Zimmerman and Ofc. Smith.
The official "intial" Sanford Police Report consists of 4 pages. At the bottom of the pages you can read that this report was printed on 3/6/2012 at 13:45(1:45 pm). The page counter on the bottom right corner shows that this was a 4 page document.
The report on the site of CNN in Session, consists of 8 pages.
Page 1 was printed on 2/28 at 11:38 and the page counter shows it to be page 1 of 5.
This report is identified as a Public Version.
In the first section of the report number of victims is 0.
In the person section of the report 3 persons are identified. Most of the information has been redacted, but the first person stil shows hgt(600), second person weight(150) and the third also weight(200). All 3 are identified as adult. The first two are shown as person type Witnes-adult. The third person has person type redacted.
Page 2 was printed on 2/28 at 11:42 and the page counter shows it to be page 1 of 3.
This again seems to be the first page of the report. The report is identified as Partial Report Only and the lay-out of the report is slightly different.
In the Person Section 4 people are identified. All are identified as adult. The first 3 show person-type Witness adult. The fourth person has person-type redacted. All identifying information has been redacted on this page.
Page 3 was printed on 2/28 at 11:42 page counter 2 of 3.
Three persons in the person section. All three are identified as adults. First two with person type witness-adult. The third one as subject, presumably Zimmerman.
In the narrative section you find the first part of the narrative of Ofc. Ayala.
Page 4 was printed on 2/28 at 11:42 page counter 3 of 3.
On this part you find the rest of the narrative of ofc. Ayala.
And that is it for this report. Ofc. Smith's narrative is not on this report.
Page 2,3 and 4 from the cnn site, seems to be the real Initial "complete" partial report.
It identifies 5 persons as adult-witness, one adult person as subject, and one adult person who's person-type is redacted. Trayvon is either not on the report or he is the redacted person-type.
These four pages appeared to have been faxed together on 3/6 at 9:28 to fax nr 4073236978 fedex office 1671 as shown at the top of these four pages as part of a 7 page fax.
The fax nr belongs to a fedex office located on 1637 Rinehart Rd
Sanford, FL 32771, about 4.5 miles from the police station and about 1.5 miles from the location where Trayvon was shot.
The last 4 pages appear to be the same 4 page report that was published on City of Sanford site. It was printed on 3/6 at 13:45.
Notice that the official "initial" report was printed about 4 hours after the other 4 pages were faxed.
I've been trying to find why all this activity concerning this report takes place on 3/6.
All I've been able to find so far is that the parents of Trayvon went public on 3/8.
I hope you are all still with me.
The most noticeable differences between the Partial Police Report printed on 2/28 and the Initial Partial Police Report published on the website of the City of Sanford and printed on 3/6 are:
the 2/28 report has 5 witnesses, one subject and one person whose person-type is redacted but identified as an adult
the 2/6 report has 6 witnesses, one victim and one subject.
The 2/28 report does not include the narrative by ofc. Smith
The 3/6 report ofc Smith's narrative is included. The date and time for the narrative are
registered as 2/27 at 3:29 am. The narrative seems an almost perfect match with the unofficial statements given by Zimmerman.
