n Thursday, Florida prosecutors accidentally released a photo of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's body to several media outlets, quickly retracting the grainy, "barely recognizable," black-and-white photo 25 minutes later. Under state law, the photo — and a record of shooter George Zimmerman's college grades, also mistakenly distributed — are confidential and exempt from disclosure. The grades showed that Zimmerman failed a class and didn't graduate, despite his earlier claims, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
