One of the jurors in the George Zimmerman trial said her life was ruined by the case and that she has doubts about the jury’s verdict.
The juror, who has been identified only as “Maddy,” gave an interview to Inside Edition’s Les Trent that airs on Thursday.
Shortly after the trial concluded, Maddy lost friends who were upset by the verdict and lost her job at a nursing home, according to an Inside Edition press released.
She said she and her husband have had to sell their possessions to make ends meet, including her kitchen table. The family now eats on the floor.
Maddy said she’s now days away from having to move into a homeless shelter because she can’t afford her house.
“Emotionally, mentally, physically, I’m so drained. I can’t stop thinking about the case,” Maddy said in the release. “I have a heart. I got to hold the gun that killed this boy. I saw pictures I didn’t need to see.”
Maddy also told Trent she questions her reluctant decision to acquit Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.
“We all know who’s guilty,” Maddy said. “George Zimmerman thinks he didn’t do anything wrong.”
Maddy previously told ABC’s Robin Roberts that Zimmerman “got away with murder.”
“… At the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with. [But] the law couldn’t prove it,” Maddy told Roberts.
Maddy was the only minority on the six-person jury that acquitted Zimmerman in July.
