SANFORD As many eagerly awaited the release of never-before-seen evidence in the case against George Zimmerman, members of Special Prosecutor Angela Corey's office provided a preview on Monday in the form of an eight-page document.
The paperwork, filed with the Seminole County clerk as closing time approached, included a list of witnesses the state plans to call and identified several pieces of the evidence prosecutors expect to use to support a second-degree murder charge in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Late Monday, Zimmerman attorney Mark O'Mara confirmed he had received the evidence at his office. It consists of dozens of CDs and "numerous" paper documents.
"It's 67 CDs. That's about all I know," O'Mara said.
Most names were redacted from the witness and evidence document obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, but six civilian witnesses were named: Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin; his brother, Jahvarius Fulton; and Zimmerman's neighbor, Frank Taaffe, friend Joe Oliver and father, Robert Zimmerman.
The document listed 18 Sanford police officers as primary witnesses, including lead Investigator Chris Serino. Corey's office also turned over five reports prepared by him, as well as written reports prepared by four other Sanford officers.
The list includes new video evidence from the night of the shooting both from the 7-Eleven store where Trayvon reportedly purchased Skittles and Arizona iced tea and from a clubhouse in Retreat at Twin Lakes, the townhouse complex where the teen was killed.
Other video, showing Zimmerman being taken into the Sanford Police Department after the shooting, has already been made public. Crime scene photos of both Zimmerman and the teen are also listed in the document filed Monday, as is Trayvon's autopsy report.

What about formal depositions?
Sounds like a lot of people to testify, Not one of which was an actual witness.
I imagine we’ll see Ricky Martin on this list after hosting his “gay” fundraiser for Barry.
Well Jahvarius might be able to testify that Travon returned home, dropped off the Shittles and Iced Tea, and left again saying he was going ofay hunting.
Jahvarius Fulton? They are planning on calling a witness named, “JAHVARIS”? Damn, that sign truck wreck was worse than I hought.
Oh so you want to deal with actual facts? That sounds racis[t] to me. /s
Depositions would be taken from the Defense.
The evidence isn’t going to matter a bit in this trial. The FBI announced today they are preparing to file “hate crime” charges against Zimmerman, without basically knowing anything of the event. Holder has people preparing charges against Zimmerman for violating Martin’s civil rights. Racist hate monger Crumb is preparing the civil suit against Zimmerman now that Angela Corey gave him the arrest he needed to move forward. The libs and Obama’s peeps are not going to rest until Zimmerman is spending the rest of his life in prison or, preferably, dead. This poor SOB’s life is over, period. He may be allowed to breathe for a while but his life is over.
When does the defense get to depose the witnesses? Would it be in time to lock in their testimony, before the MSM descends?
Sybrina Fulton is unique enough.
Now lessee about dis Jahvarius dude ... he be uniquer still!
He pops up twice, but, then, he's only 21.
(This is almost as funny as the sad saga of the late Leiutenant Quarles Harris Jr.)
Here’s the official list:
