This morning, Anderson Cooper stopped by "New Day" to discuss their conversation.
When the trial ended and Juror B37 was let out of sequester, the public attention on the trial was shocking for her.
"She says she really had no idea how big this case had become. How much interest there was in it..." says Cooper. "She's been really overwhelmed at the amount of interest in this case and just how many people are trying to pursue her, her family."
Prior to coming on AC360, Cooper met with her for two hours. She was crying just talking about the experience of going through the trial- it weighs on her very heavily, according to Cooper. She had planned on writing a book about the experience, but has since backed out because of public backlash.
When she reflects on the deliberation process in the jury room, and all the evidence before them, the jurors spent a great deal of time analyzing the interaction between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin.
"They ended up focusing on just those last few seconds and minutes of the struggle, and did George Zimmerman fear for his life? And that's really what it boiled down to for them," says Cooper. "They never talked about race, not once, she says. She didn't consider it, she doesn't think any of the other jurors considered it."
