As the Trayvon Martin case continues to captivate the nation, yesterday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited the parents of the slain teenager to offer their reactions to recent developments.
With George Zimmerman's current whereabouts called into question by his own legal team Tuesday, Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton was worried that her son's killer can't be accounted for:
"That concerns us a great deal as parents that they don't know where he is," she told Piers Morgan. "They should be close to him, and in close contact with him, and able to have communication. So, it does bother us to know that they don't know where he is."
Martin's father Tracy echoed Fulton's thoughts:
"He definitely needs to be contained. I think he needs to be in reach. For his lawyers not to know where he's at, that doesn't sit well with us," said Martin. "There's definitely a lot of tension building up, and we're just hoping for, within the next 72 hours, that the correct decision is made."
Earlier this week meanwhile, Zimmerman launched a personal website, on which he thanks people for their support. Asked for her reaction, Fulton told the host she knows about it, but isn't terribly interested:
"I haven't really viewed the website. I'm just really trying to stay focused on justice for Trayvon, and I don't want things like that to distract me. So, some of the things I do not pay attention to, and that's one of them."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Trayvon Martin's parents talk candidly about the latest elements in their late son's case.
