2nd Juror Breaks Silence, Says Zimmerman 'Got Away With Murder'

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Another juror in the George Zimmerman murder trial has broken her silence.

She was known as "B-29," but now she's showing her face and identifying herself as Maddy.

She says she wanted to convict Zimmerman in the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

"For myself, he's guilty because the evidence shows he's guilty," she said in part.

Maddy later added, "I stand by my decision because of the law. If I stand by the decision because in my heart, he would have been guilty."

She said she realized there wasn't enough evidence for a murder conviction, and she feels like she let Martin's parents down.

The 36-year-old Puerto Rican mother of eight was the only minority on the panel.

She moved to Florida from Chicago just months before the trial began.

It's unknown when the jurors' full identities will be released.

During a Friday luncheon, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, will be speaking in Philadelphia at the National Urban League Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Earlier Friday morning, "Good Day Philadelphia" talked to local attorneys Ken Rothweiler and Shaka Johnson about what this newest juror from the panel had to say.
