Funeral services for Trayvon will be held Saturday 11 am at antiarch missionary baptist church. 21311 nw 34 ave. miami gardens fla.
VIEWING will be Friday AFTER 4 pm at Richardson funeral home 3790 nw 167 st ( old wedr) miami gardens fla.
Let’s start with recording #6 near the end:
Crump says “I understand that you can’t come to the wake because you had to go to the hospital?”
Now I am assuming that “wake” means “viewing”.
She starts to tell the story from right after Trayvon got shot saying “He didn’t call back so I was like okay he might have lost his phone in the grass cuz I thought it was a fight and then the next day” and BOOM, Crump shuts the recorder off. WTF? Oh how convenient.
So now we know about what she did being the concerned and life long girl friend who just heard Trayvon get stalked and beaten by a crazy white man and she does nothing. She went from the fight to saying in an earlier recording attempting to call him back, to the next day. She just admitted she didn’t try to get a hold of anyone and apparently wasn’t concerned enough past the one callback to Trayvon after the phone shut off.
So something happened the next day that she wanted to tell but what? What was she going to say about the next day? Crump certainly didn’t want us to know the story DeeDee was telling.
Next recording #7:
The next recording starts with Crump saying “Say it in your words…”
What? Were those not her words in the prior recording? It really seems to me she was saying something there Crump did not want heard, perhaps even corrected her and told her to say it in her words.
She starts off by saying she was in shock and the reason it seems, she starts to say, is because Trayvon wasn’t doing nothing but just getting Skittles and Arizona iced tea.
That makes no sense to me.
Crump says “And why couldn’t you go to his wake?”
She says she was just sick that day and just stayed home.
Crump says “And what happened, where did you go?”
DeeDee replies: “(inaudible) all day, Friday I was just sick so I just stayed home and then my mama came and she took me to (inaudible) like at kind a like 2 somethin and I went the hospital the next day.”
At least I think that’s what she said given the audio quality is bad and her sentence structure is borderline illiterate. I think she’s saying she stayed home Friday because she was sick and the next day her mom came and took her to the funeral around 2pm and then she went to the hospital the next day.
[UPDATE:3/9/2013] Upon further listening to that segment I now believe that DeeDee is saying that her mom took her to a doctor at like 2 something “and I’m at the hospital the next day”. So I now believe DeeDee is trying to say she did not attend the viewing nor the funeral.
Crump asks her if she stayed over night in the hospital and I think she says yes.
Crump says “And so this made you so sick that you had to go get medical assistance?”
What “this”? We haven’t heard what the “this” is yet as to why she needed medical assistance.
Then DeeDee say “yes, cuz I think I was the last person talking to him and I(inaudible)”
Crump says “And that’s when you realized that the day of his wake that you was the last person that was talking to him and it just made you physically sick?”
WOW! How did Crump know that she realized this at the day of Trayvons wake? All DeeDee said was that she was sick that day, she never said why. She said she went to the hospital it seems the day after the funeral. She never said when she learned that she was the last person to talk to Trayvon.
It’s also funny because earlier in the interview, Recording #3, Crump says “At that point[when DD says she tried to call Trayvon back] did you realize that after you found out what happened did you realize you that that was the last anybody alive had talked to Trayvon?”
And in Recording #6 Crump thanks DeeDee for sharing what her and Trayvon talked about the last time that he was alive and states the records confirm that she was the last person to talk to him alive.
So THREE TIMES before DeeDee states she THINKS she was the last person to talk to Trayvon she’s TOLD she was the last person to talk to Trayvon and then once after in the form of a question with the addition of when she learned it.
You go to be kidding me.
This issue about her going to the hospital appears to be important to the State as well because Bernie de la Rionda also questions her about it. Of course he’s not much better at interviewing people so it’s not much help in bringing clarity to the issue.
Bernie: You obviously found out about what happened to Trayvon, right? And at some point you ended up knowing that he was killed, right?
B: Were you able to go to the funeral or to the wake?
D: I was goin’ to go, but.
B: OK, what happened?
D: I didn’ feel good.
B: OK, did you end up going to the hospital or somewhere?
D: Mmmm, Yeah, I had high blood pressure.
That’s it. That’s all there is to Bernie apparently; that at some point she found out about Trayvon being shot and killed, that she was going to go to the funeral and to the wake but didn’t because she didn’t feel good and ended up going to a hospital or somewhere because of high blood pressure.
Makes perfect sense.
Did DeeDee go to the funeral? I don’t know. There are reports that she did but given what we hear in her own words it’s difficult to say.
Did she go to the hospital because she found out she was the last person to talk to Trayvon before he died? It’s doubtful to me.
Maybe one day she’ll come out and say clearly what happened without hiding behind the likes of Crump but I wouldn’t count on it.
Perhaps O’Mara and West will be able to clarify these and the numerous other issues that surround DeeDee and for that we’ll have to wait for either the immunity hearing or trial and even then there’s some question as to whether or not the DeeDee will be brought up.
She and her story may forever remain a mystery.
