See the famous James Duane video Don't Talk to the Police. Even if you're completely innocent, you shouldn't talk to the police because if they get you to talk for long enough, eventually they'll find something inconsistent.
If all the prosecution has are some inconsistencies in Z's story that he wound up telling 5 separate times or so, it seems like they still have an uphill battle. The lead investigator admitted under oath that the State:
1) doesn't know who started the fight
2) has nothing to contradict Z's story of walking back to his car
3) can't tell who was screaming for help via audio forensics and
4) Z's injuries may be consistent with his story.
