Pennsylvania Teen Killed Classmate And Posed For Snapchat Selfie With Body
A high school football player allegedly shot his classmate in the face and posted a photo of himself with the teen's dead body, according to police near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
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.
Mangan's mother found him in their home on Wednesday.
Jeannette police arrested Morton on Friday after receiving a photo showing Morton with Mangan's body sitting in a chair, according to an affidavit.
Another boy allegedly received the photo from Morton via Snapchat and saved a screenshot of it before the picture automatically deleted, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The boy's mother contacted police after learning he had a photo of the murder scene.
There was also a text message from Morton to the boy saying, "Ryan was not the last one," CBS Pittsburgh reports.
