Attorneys for former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman are expected to argue for the right to subpoena the social media accounts of Trayvon Martin. The attorneys for the man who shot Trayvon Martin to death will make the request Friday.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara says Martin’s social media pages have disappeared from the Internet.

“We have not been able to find accounts that we know were there or that we have anecdotal evidence that they existed at one point, which means they were there and now they are not,” said attorney Mark O’Mara, according to WFTV.

O’Mara also said he wants to see school records from two high schools and a middle school, alongside archives of Martin’s activity on Twitter and Facebook.

Martin’s parents released a statement through their attorney saying, “Trayvon’s parents maintain that his school records and Facebook page are completely irrelevant. Is this going to be a new legal standard we are setting for a murderer to review the school records and Facebook page of his teenage victim to determine whether or not he should have killed him?”
