Editor's note: In an exclusive interview, Anderson Cooper speaks with Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner about the Trayvon Martin case, and why they no longer represent the shooter, George Zimmerman. Tune in to AC360° at 8 and 10 p.m. ET tonight.
Attorneys for neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who authorities say fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Florida, said Tuesday they have lost contact with their client and will no longer represent him.
"He has gone on his own. I'm not sure what he's doing or who he's talking to," said legal adviser Craig Sonner. "If he wants us to come back as counsel, he will contact us."
Sonner, who said the last time they had contact with Zimmerman was Sunday, spoke to reporters in Florida with attorney Hal Uhrig.
Uhrig said Zimmerman contacted the office of the special prosecutor appointed to lead the investigation on his own.
