AUDIO: George Zimmerman 911 Call

During the 911 call, there has been speculation that Zimmerman uttered the racial slur, under his breath, " f*king c**ns" after he tells the dispatcher that Martin was heading towards the back entrance of the complex. Zimmerman also allegedly says, "these a**holes always get away."

"The 911 call has been sent to the FBI headquarters for further analysis to determine if George used any racial slurs. If it can be determined that Zimmerman uttered the racial slur, he could be charged with a hate crime.," a source close to the situation tells "The FBI has the technology to isolate portions of the call and enhance the audio. The FBI will be turning over their findings in a formal report to the United States Justice Department and prosecutors in Florida to determine if any criminal charges are going to be filed against Zimmerman."
