Shiping Bao, Medical Examiner In George Zimmerman Case, Fired

ORLANDO, Fla. — An attorney for the medical examiner in the George Zimmerman case whose testimony was challenged by defense attorneys says his client plans to sue for wrongful termination after being fired.

Shiping Bao was let go as an associate medical examiner in Florida’s Volusia County last week, officials disclosed Tuesday. County spokesman Dave Byron declined to give a reason.

Bao performed Trayvon Martin’s autopsy in February 2012 and offered conflicting testimony at Zimmerman’s murder trial last July about how long the 17-year-old Martin could have lived after being shot in a struggle with the former neighborhood watch volunteer. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges.

Bao’s attorney, Willie E. Gary, said he plans to file suit shortly for wrongful termination, discrimination and job harassment against the medical examiner’s office and others.

I can give a reason….. he was evasive, innacurate, changed his statements, and has no idea what a court case means……….. pompous and arrogant.

He is the first to actually fall in this case…. more to come.

  1. Trayvon Martin Medical Examiner Says Prosecution Threw Case

    Dr. Shiping Bao, the Medical Examiner who performed Trayvon Martin’s autopsy, is claiming that the prosecution ignored evidence in the case, due to a belief that Zimmerman was in the right. Bao is suing the state for $100 million in a wrongful termination case, after being fired over disagreements about the investigation.

    He says the ME’s office, the State Attorney’s office, and the Sanford Police were biased against Martin and believed that he “got what he deserved.”

    Dr. Bao says that the autopsy he performed on Trayvon Martin proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there was no possible way that Martin had been on top of George Zimmerman when the shooting took place. However, that evidence was hushed away, and Bao was told to keep his mouth shut. During the trial, the prosecution declined to question him about the scientific evidence about how Martin and Zimmerman were positioned during the altercation.

    The State’s Attorney’s office denies Bao’s claims.
