The attorney representing Trayvon Martin’s parents said Wednesday a medical report detailing injuries sustained by the man who said he shot Trayvon was leaked to bolster his claims of self-defense.

Lawyer Benjamin Crump said he has not seen the medical report but questions who leaked the information and why.
