Two Texas teenagers were arrested and charged with serious theft after they shared a snap chat video of themselves stealing from a corpse and laughing at it.
Bethany Martin, 17, and an unidentified 16-year-old female friend were found dead last Monday, recently walking in a developed neighborhood. He told authorities he “saw something strange near the ditch and went to see it up close.” The girls also called a male friend to the scene before calling police.
The trio discovered the body of 25-year-old Marcus Adams, who was thought to have committed suicide. Her family has since set up a GoFund Me page to help with funeral expenses.
Teenagers, on the other hand, got into trouble when the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office learned of their snapchat video. Officials said. the people. The clip, which was circulating, showed Martin “removing jewelry from the deceased’s neck.” Sheriff Javier Salazar said he would not believe it happened if it was not captured on video.
“When the sergeant of my murder pulled me aside and said I was going to show you a video that is very disturbing. I was shaken. I am upset with that,” he said.
Martin has been released on۔ 2,000 bail since his arrest last Tuesday. As an adult, he was charged with aggravated robbery of a human corpse or grave. His partner made the same accusation, even though he is considered a minor.
“It was annoying because they were laughing,” Salzar said.
The police affidavit revealed that the teens used Martin’s phone to record the trial and later posted it on SnapChat. He told investigators that he carefully removed the necklace without touching the body. He then gave it to his female partner, who liked it because it “matched her fashion style.”
The girls confessed that they only took the pendant and threw the chains in a nearby grassy area. The 16-year-old then handed over the jewelery and it was returned to the deceased’s family. Meanwhile, Adams’ family also condemned the teen’s actions.
“The arrogance and indifference of some people in this world makes me sick to my stomach. What kind of world do we really live in? Has the world gone crazy?” Her aunt wrote in one piece Shane Magazine. He added, “The first response to such an incident would be to take out your camera and start filming and returning before calling someone for help. How do you mentally deal with such behavior?” Do? “
Adams’ bereaved family does not believe he committed suicide. They feel that “nothing is right” because they know that “he loved life.” He wants an answer and then asks for a second autopsy to determine the cause of death.
