The only minority on the all-female jury that voted to acquit George Zimmerman said today that Zimmerman "got away with murder" for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Martin's parents.
"You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," said the woman who was identified only as Juror B29 during the trial. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."
She said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.

Filled with regrets and doubt, the only minority on the Florida jury made up entirely of women that found George Zimmerman not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin says that she "can't sleep at night."
"George Zimmerman got away with murder," Maddy, who declined to give her last name, said in an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America," "but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with."
A 36-year-old of Puerto Rican decent, Maddy said that while she and many of her fellow jurors believed that Zimmerman was guilty of murdering Martin at a housing community in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26, "the law couldnt prove it."
