Trayon Martin’s Parents To Sit Down With Dr. Phil
Trayvon Martin’s parents are still trying to cope with the loss of their 17-year-old son that was gunned down in February by trigger happy self-appointed neighborhood watch
dog man George Zimmerman as he walked home from the store unarmed and unaware that he was minutes from losing his life.
The parents of slain teenager Trayvon Martin sit down with Dr. Phil on Friday, September 14, 2012 (check local listings) in an effort to try and get past the terrible tragedy that has beset the family.
Trayvon’s father Tracy Martin, his mother Sybrina Fulton and older brother Jahvaris speak to Dr. Phil about how they are coping as individuals and as a family, and ask for his guidance in moving forward.
“They’re left with the questions about what should they or could they have done to prevent this,” said Dr. Phil. “They’re trying to make sense out of this tragic loss and they’re lost.”
Trayvon Martin was shot and killed earlier this year following an altercation with neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman who is now in custody and facing a second degree murder charge. On Tuesday of this week, Dr. Phil opened the 11th season of his number one rated syndicated daytime talk show by interviewing Mark and Sondra Osterman, who say they are Zimmerman’s closest friends.
Our thoughts are with Trayvon’s parents as they continue to grieve their son.
