A hacker, who goes by the name Klanklannon, has posted what he claims to be messages from Florida teen Trayvon Martin’s social networking sites.

As Gawker reports, the hacker posted Martin’s alleged Facebook messages on a 4chan “pol” message board on Tuesday, with the comment, “Today /pol/, tomorrow CNN.”  One post was titled “Trayvon Martin Used Marijuana Habitually.” It included a conversation between Martin and a friend about smoking weed. In another entry called “Trayvon Martin was a Drug Dealer,” Martin is pictured with a large amount of cash.

Klanklannon also posted log-in information and passwords for Martin’s Gmail, Yahoo, MySpace, and Twitter. The passwords, which were likely changed by the hacker, were racial slurs. Gawker reports that a “source” tried the username and password for the Gmail account and was able to log in to what appeared to be Martin’s email. The source deleted the account after noticing that other people had also logged in and sent messages from the account, posing as Martin, according to Gawker.

It wasn’t long before Martin’s private messages and photos spread to white supremacist websites. They were posted on Stormfront.org, a site that boats “white pride, world wide,” under the header “A fellow white-nationalist at 4chan’s /pol/ has hacked Trayvon Martin’s online accounts, and has uncovered further evidence that Trayvon was drug dealer, a thug, and possibly even an identity thief. Here are the images that he posted.”

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch caption who admitted to shooting the unarmed teen, has still not been charged. However, the investigation has been handed to a special prosecutor and witnesses are reportedly being re-interviewed.
