AUDIO: key figure in George Zimmerman trial lands in Champaign County, writes tell-all book

The unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, may have you thinking of last year's events in Florida, where George Zimmerman, a white man, went on trial for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. 

One of the key figures in that trial has landed in Champaign County and has put out a book telling his side of the story.

WDWS reporter Tim Ditman delved into this story in a three part series this week.  In his first report, Ditman takes us back to that Florida courtroom.



In report number two, Ditman talks about why Shiping Bao believes his testimony at Zimmerman's trial started his downfall.



In his final report, Ditman talks about how Bao is finally able to enjoy life again after the events in Florida.



Listen to Ditman's full 70-plus minute interview with Bao.
