Medical Examiner in Trayvon Martin Case Fired, Hires Heavyweight Attorney

Bao
In another twist in the Trayvon Martin saga, Politic365 has learned that Dr. Shiping Bao, the Seminole/Volusia County Associate Medical Examiner who performed the autopsy on teen Trayvon Martin, has been terminated from his position as associate medical examiner.  
 
Sources close to Dr. Bao strongly believe the reasons for his termination are suspect.  A source close to the situation indicated Dr. Bao’s dismissal was related to his testimony in the Zimmerman trial.  An investigation by the EEOC surrounding the circumstances of his termination is currently being undertaken.  Powerhouse attorney Willie Gary is representing Dr. Bao in a lawsuit against the county. Gary, 66, is a legendary and highly regarded attorney based in Florida.  
 
Dr. Bao testified in the second degree murder trial of George Zimmerman.  Zimmerman killed teen Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012.  Dr. Bao’s testimony was cut short by both the defense and prosecution.  Zimmerman was acquitted by a jury of six women on July 13.   Just yesterday, George Zimmerman’s wife Shellie, who is divorcing him, called police and informed the 911 dispatcher that her husband had a firearm, had assaulted her father and that “he is going to shoot us.” 
 
Many observers of the trial believe Dr. Bao’s testimony was crucial to the outcome of the case.  That Dr. Bao’s testimony was cut short may have been a factor in the jury’s conclusion.
