(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Report introduced.

(Atlanta: Randi Kaye) The issue of the legal admissibility of key audiotapes in the trial in Florida of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin examined; 911 tape played in which either man may have been screaming. [Forensic audio expert Tom OWEN†, FBI speech scientist Hirotaka NAKASONE†, EYEWITNESS, Martin's mother Sybrina FULTON†, father ‡ ZIMMERMAN - offer analyses of the scream.] The words in Zimmerman's 911 call to the police played. [Zimmerman attorney Mark O'MARA†- comments.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and former prosecutor Marcia Clark about the scream in the 911 call. [CLARK - says the scream is the smoking gun in the trial so the judge's ruling is critical; agrees you cannot identify the voice of a screamer.] [GERAGOS - likens this expert issue to the the Casey Anthony and the Texas arson cases: junk science.]
