Teen Arrested after sending a Selfie on SnapChat with a Dead Body!


What is wrong with people?! Yikes…

A Pennsylvania teen charged with fatally shooting a classmate took a selfie with the body, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

Maxwell Marion Morton, 16, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder, and allegedly confessed to police in the killing of 16-year-old Ryan Mangan in Jeannette, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The teen is charged with shooting 16-year-old Ryan Mangan in the face, killing him. Mangan’s mother found his body in their Jeannette, Pa., home on Wednesday, according to the Tribune-Review.

The mother of another teen contacted police after her son received a picture of the victim with the alleged shooter, the Associated Press reported. The suspect also sent a text that said, “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one,” according to the AP.

The suspect sent the selfie through SnapChat, a social media application that deletes pictures seconds after they are sent, according to the Tribune-Review.

According to a police affidavit the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette obtained, the alleged shooter confessed to killing Mangan after police searched his home Friday and found a 9mm handgun hidden under the basement steps.

Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck told the Tribune-Review it was the first time he had seen a selfie of a suspect with a dead victim. Peck said the photo was, “a key piece of evidence that led investigators to the defendant.”

The suspect is charged with homicide and a firearms count, AP reports.

A GoFundMe page set up by a family friend in the wake of his death has so far raised more than $5,000 (£3,000) to help his family with funeral costs.
