According to City Manager Norton Bonaparte’s office, city staff members removed the items after consulting with Martin’s family. The memorial was placed at the entrance of the subdivision where Martin was shot on Feb. 26 by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
“All the items retrieved have been carefully handled and inventoried,” said the announcement.
Zimmerman was released from jail on Friday after posting bond on second-degree murder charge; he maintains his claim of self-defense after Martin assaulted him.
