Juror B-29, known simply to the public as Maddy, came out publicly to share with the world how perplexed she was after the “not guilty” verdict was handed down in the George Zimmerman trial this summer in the shooting death of innocent and unarmed teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012. During a recent episode of “Inside Edition,” Maddy announced she had lost her job, friends and has received death threats since she appeared on national television on “Good Morning America,” telling anchor Robin Roberts, “My first vote was secondary murder. I was the juror who was going to give them the hung jury. Oh, I was. I fought to the end.” She adds emphatically, “George Zimmerman got away with murder. But you can’t get away from God.”
Of Puerto Rican descent, she was on the only minority on the all-female jury which she says she regrets doing. The former nursing home aide says she and her husband have had to sell many of their possessions including their bedroom suit and kitchen table to provide for their family.
She tells “Inside Edition”, “On Facebook, someone wrote I’m gonna feel the same pain as Trayvon Martin’s mom. Which means I’m gonna lose my son. All this blame was put on me. No one is looking at George Zimmerman. He’s the one who killed the child.”
