WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA)-- The facts of what exactly happened on the night that 17-year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman are still a mystery.

However, accounts are now surfacing  from unexpected sources, and they're are adding more details to what so far has been an incomplete story of events. 

Richard Kurtz, the mortician who embalmed Trayvon Martin's body said he didn't see any markings on his body that Trayvon had been in a scuffle. 

Kurtz told affiliate WSVN, "In preparing his body and his hands and dressing him I could not see any evidence that he had been in such a fight."

George Zimmerman had told police he shot Martin because he was attacking him and beating him. His brother Robert Zimmerman was on the "Piers Morgan Tonight"show, defending his brother's claim. According to him, Trayvon was trying to take Zimmerman's gun away from him. 

Zimmerman said, "There would have been George dead had he not acted decisively and instantaneously when he was being disarmed."

Neither the mortician nor the shooter's brother were present at the time of the shooting. An eye witness who was said Zimmerman didn't seem hurt or injured, but rather rattled.

The unidentified witness told CNN's Anderson Cooper, "It was a hispanic man, and he was...he didn't appear hurt or anything else. He just kind of seemed very worried."
