(Newser) – George Zimmerman has finally surfaced—at least online. The Florida man who killed Trayvon Martin has posted a personal website, therealgeorgezimmerman.com, to collect money for his own legal defense. His attorneys have confirmed to MSNBC that the site is authentic, unlike other websites claiming to raise money in his name. "I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected," writes Zimmerman on his site.

On a page called "The Facts," he writes: "I cannot discuss the details of the event on February 26th," but he thanks friends for "allowing law enforcement to proceed with their investigation unhindered." A US flag can be seen fluttering in the background. In related news, MyFoxDetroit notes that a construction site sign in Michigan was altered to read, "Trayvon a [N-word]." A state official says someone—not the subcontractor, he insists—must have snuck over and "changed the message."
