A teenager from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been charged with murder after he allegedly gunned-down one of his classmates and took a selfie with the corpse, which he then posted to a friend via photo sharing app Snapchat.

16-year-old Maxwell Marion Morton was unaware, however, that the gruesome photo that he sent was screencapped by his friend before it was auto-deleted. Morton then sent a number of follow-up texts that incriminated him further. After his arrest, Morton confessed to the offence and is now being charged as an adult.

District attorney John Peck said to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, regarding the Snapchat photo, “I’ve never seen it before, but it was a key piece of evidence that led investigators to the defendant.”
