http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nationa ... -1.1052713Police in Sanford, Fla., have said that Austin Brown, who went out to walk his dog on Feb. 26 near where Trayvon was shot, saw Zimmerman lying in the grass crying for help just before the slaying.
But Austin’s mom, Cheryl Brown, told the News that when cops interviewed her son eight days after Trayvon’s death, he told them he saw only one person lying in the grass and he couldn’t tell who it was.
“He kept telling them he couldn't see anything because it was too dark,” she said. “He said he couldn't see the race or anything. He never saw a second person. ”
“Then they asked him if he saw what the man was wearing. They gave him a multiple choice question and gave him three colors. He said, ‘I think it was red.’”
Zimmerman, 28, was wearing a red and black jacket. Trayvon, 17, was wearing a grey hoodie.
“Knowing my son, I believe he felt pressured to give the color,” Brown said.
“He really couldn't see anything,” she said. “I think when interviewing a 13 year old you don't give them three options.”
I guess there was no eyewitness that saw the fight.
You're mistaken. The article mentions two "eyewitnesses", one a man and another the 13 year old you quoted above. However, neither of these is the eyewitness I linked to a couple of time above in prior posts. If you had read the links I provided, you would have known these are not the same people. Here it is again:

A man who witnessed part of the altercation contacted authorities.
"The guy on the bottom, who had a red sweater on, was yelling to me, 'Help! Help!' and I told him to stop, and I was calling 911," said the witness, who asked to be identified only by his first name, John.
John said he locked his patio door, ran upstairs and heard at least one gun shot.
"And then, when I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on the top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point."
