George Zimmerman Charged With Stalking Investigator Working on Trayvon Martin Documentary

Share

Authorities say George Zimmerman threatened a private investigator working for a documentary filmmaker. He also allegedly wrote to Warren: "Anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator".

As CrimeOnline reported late previous year, Zimmerman accused executive producer Michael Gasparro of going to his parents and uncle's homes in Florida in hopes of catching them on camera.

A news release from the State Attorney's Office for Seminole County, Florida, said Zimmerman was being investigated by the county sheriff's office over allegations that he stalked Dennis Warren late previous year.

George Zimmerman the acquitted shooter in the death of Trayvon Martin, answers questions from a Seminole circuit judge during a first-appearance hearing on charges including aggravated assault stemming from a fight with his girlfriend November 19, 2013 in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman contacted the executive producer of the documentary, expressing his agitation over this, and he allegedly sent threatening texts and emails to the private investigator.

Zimmerman then went on to leave the producer so many voicemails that his inbox filled up, and each voicemail got progressively more threatening.

Here's the bottom line: Zimmerman received a summons on May 3 and will be arraigned at the end of the month.

Zimmerman's stream of profanity continued to flow as Seiple told Zimmerman she was calling about Warren's report of unwanted communication.

One of the texts included a link to an article in which Zimmerman is quoted as saying, "I know how to handle people who f-- with me".

The investigator reached out to law enforcement and was advised to tell Zimmerman to stop communicating with him. This led Sheriff's Sgt. Shannon Seiple - who had met Zimmerman before - to give him a call on January 3, to confirm the calls and messages were in fact coming from Zimmerman himself.

The sheriff's deputies confirmed it was Zimmerman who was on the phone and requested he be charged, according to court documents.

According to the charges, Zimmerman allegedly followed, harassed and cyberstalked Dennis Albert Warren between December 16 and December 25 2017.
