Shortly after Juror B29 (aka Maddy) came forward on Thursday to admit publicly that she thinks George Zimmeman got away with murder, Trayvon Martin’s family responded to the news.

Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton released the following statement.

It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. That George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.

This new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. That’s why Tracy and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son.

The juror’s full interview with “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts is set to air Friday morning.
