(FLORIDA) - Friends and family of George Zimmerman report that he has fallen into a deep depression since learning of the the death of Glee star Cory Monteith in Vancouver on Saturday. Zimmerman also made headline news the same weekend following his astounding not guilty verdict for the shooting death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.
“I can’t tell you how hard George is taking Cory Monteith’s death.” said Zimmerman’s brother. ”I’ve never seen him like this. He loves Glee. I really hope he doesn’t do anything stupid, like go shoot someone from Vancouver.”
George Zimmerman is reported to have gone directly into his bedroom upon hearing the news of the actor’s death and is refusing to come out for any reason, including meals or toilet breaks.
“He was in such a good mood after dodging that murder rap for that black kid." said Zimmerman’s attorney. “This really took the wind out of his sails. It’s a real tragedy."
Said Zimmerman’s mother: “I just hope and pray that in the face of his depression, George can stand his ground.”
