Editor's note: Due to high demand, Piers Morgan's interview with Rachel Jeantel will re-air in its entirety tonight at 9.
Less than a week since the jury reached a "not guilty" verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, this evening Piers Morgan is back with an encore presentation of the interview you've been waiting for, as Rachel Jeantel is in the studio for a fascinating and candid conversation.
The young woman who had been talking to the late Trayvon Martin just minutes before his February 2012 death, Jeantel admits that the case's conclusion didn't shock her:
"I had a feeling it was going to be 'not guilty,'" she says. "In my mind - well in reality - Trayvon before his death, he thought I was still on the phone. I could have called out for help or something but I wasn't on the phone."
Having reluctantly taken the stand to offer testimony on behalf of the prosecution, Jeantel unwillingly captured the national spotlight with her unique appearance and demeanor in court. Opening up and presenting an entirely different persona with Piers Morgan, she notes that Martin's specific choice in mobile device had lead her to believe that her friend was in trouble:
"If you click on the Android, it can end the call," she explains. "There was a struggle, so somebody had to be on top of Trayvon."
