Texas teens find dead man’s body, steal his jewelry and post it all on Snapchat: police

Two Texas teen girls discovered the remains of a 25-year-old man, stole his jewelry and posted video of the macabre act to Snapchat, police say.

The man is believed to have hanged himself in a Medina Valley drainage ditch.

The girls, 17 and 16 years old, face felony charges of theft from a human corpse in connection with the Monday morning incident, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. (snip)

After the girls stumbled onto the body, they called another friend who called 911 at around 8:38 a.m. Monday, according to investigators.

The teens told deputies they were walking to a local gas station and saw something in the drainage ditch. They went closer to take a look and found the victim.

But on Tuesday, investigators said they learned of a video circulating on social media that showed the scene before deputies arrived.

It allegedly showed the 17-year-old taking a gold necklace off the dead man’s chest, according to FOX San Antonio. The video was sent anonymously to Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies.

The 17 year old, Bethany Martin, and an unidentified 16 year old, have been charged with theft from a human corpse. They state they threw out the chain, but kept the pendant, which has been recovered. And they’ve admitted to taking the chain. Which, really, they did not have to say a thing, since they’re on video taking it off the corpse.

(KSAT) The investigator interviewed Martin, who said her friend liked the necklace and pendant around the man’s neck.

She said she removed the jewelry from his body and then removed the medallion from the chain, the affidavit states. She said she gave the medallion to her friend and tossed the necklace into the grass.

The friend, who is not named in this story because she is a juvenile, told deputies that she recorded the incident on Snapchat.

She said she put the medallion on her own golden necklace because it “matched her fashion style,” the affidavit states.

In the past when youngsters did Stupid Things they didn’t provide video proof of their crime. Now they record it for Likes.

    Well, it’s not like he was going to need them anymore.

    If this is going to be how you choose to punch out, I don’t think you should have any higher expectations of what happens to your stuff.
