This is the original crime scene diagram made by private detective George Anan who was hired by the defense in 1976 and who searched the Zeigler furniture store together with attorney Vernon Davids.
In a two-week examination of the store, Davids and Annan found a .38 caliber slug and a .38 caliber exit hole in the north wall, which the deputies had missed.
Remember that Zeigler used to carry a weapon since he frequently took large amounts of cash to the bank? That was a .22 automatic and, it was the jammed gun which Zeigler said he had tried to defend himself with at the back of the showroom. The .22 pistol had been fired once but the slug was never found.
Case: In Dec 1975, a quadruple murder took place in the Zeigler Furniture Store (Winter Garden, Florida). The victims were Charles Mays, Virginia and Perry Edwards, and their daughter Eunice Edwards-Zeigler. The fifth victim, William Thomas Zeigler, became the sole suspect because he survived.
The case is riddled by police misconduct (lying on the stand), prosecutorial misconduct (withheld evidence), and forensic testing disproving the charges. The evidentiary hearing for touch DNA testing was held on March 31, 2016. Judge Whitehead denied the request on July 18, 2016. On November 23, 2016, an appeal was filed in the Supreme Court of Florida.
On April 21, 2017 the Florida Supreme Court denied the touch DNA request. On May 8, 2017 a motion for a rehearing with the US Supreme Court was filed. It was denied November 13, 2017.
