(CNN) - NASA has never flown a manned space shuttle mission.
There was no Mars rover.
People can make their own currency.
From February 2009 through September 2010, someone using the name "Erad3" made these and a series of other assertions - unusual at best, disturbed at worst - on the website abovetopsecret.com.
Erad3, according to site co-owner Mark Allin, was almost certainly Jared Lee Loughner, the 22-year-old man accused of killing six people and injuring 14 others last weekend, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona.
The site, Allin said, focuses on "alternative news" and information "not covered by the mainstream media." Allin noted that all 130 messages from Erad3 were posted from Loughner's hometown of Tucson, and many of them bear a striking resemblance to postings made by Loughner on the popular social media site YouTube.
Investigators are examining the postings on Allin's site, according to a law enforcement source.
