Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman has forced himself back into the mainstream headlines for selling his murder weapon and blasting the slain teenager’s parents this week.
In a new interview, Zimmerman blamed Martin’s parents for his 2012 fate.
“They didn’t raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” Zimmerman said of Martin. “Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death,” he said. “She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.” (The Daily Beast)
New reports claim Zimmerman sold the gun he used to kill Martin this week for $120,000.
We’re told roughly 7 verified users participated in the bidding war. Zimmerman has to verify the winner and his or her funds before the sale is finalized. The top bidder is anonymous at this point, due to the auction site’s rules. (TMZ)
