George Zimmerman posts photo of Trayvon Martin's body

Florida man who claims he shot teen in self-defense shows little remorse

MIAMI - George Zimmerman shared a photo of the corpse of Trayvon Martin on his Twitter account Sunday. 

Zimmerman killed the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens on Feb. 26, 2012.  He was acquitted, and has shown little remorse.

"We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me," he said on Twitter last month. "Give it a whirl cupcake."

Zimmerman, 31, shared the photo of the corpse, after one of his fans created the original post. The Twitter user said, "Z-Man is a one-man army."

He later tweeted pictures of bounty flyers with his picture and asked, "I wonder when Twitter will take these images down?"


Crime scene investigators shot the photo of the teenage boy only steps away from his father's apartment at The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford.

Zimmerman claimed that he shot Martin, a Dr. Michael M. Krop High School student, in self-defense. Evidence would later show that Zimmerman was following Martin, who had gone to a nearby store.

Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer, was charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. A jury acquitted him of the charges July 13, 2013.

Earlier this year, the Department of Justice said there was not enough evidence to prosecute the case as a federal hate crime.

On Monday, Zimmerman shared a sketch of President Barack Obama wearing a hooded jacket. Some Twitter users have replied to the "@TherealGeorgeZ" Twitter account with the image below.
