Lone Zimmerman Trial Juror Remains Silent

The jury's five white women have all spoken out. But what about the juror of color?

We all know about Juror B37, who provided an exclusive interview and whose dream of publishing a book and profiting from the Zimmerman trial appears to have vanished. Now, nearly all of the jurors that served with her have weighed in.

According to a statement published Tuesday by the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, four jurors have issued a statement distancing themselves from their colleague in the jury box:

We, the undersigned jurors, understand there is a great deal of interest in this case. But we ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives. We also wish to point out that the opinions of Juror B-37, expressed on the Anderson
Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below.

The full statement is signed by Jurors B51, B76, E6 and E40–which means that so far, we’ve heard from all of the white jurors who served on the case.

That leaves the one woman of color–Juror B29–who has remained silent since Saturday’s verdict. As we noted previously, Juror B29 appeared to have been wiping a tear from her eye during the state’s closing rebuttal. If she does emerge, we might better understand how the jury found Zimmerman not guilty on all charges in connection to the killing of Trayvon Martin.
