Pictures of dead teens appear on social media

Alabama State Troopers are still investigating what caused a single vehicle accident in Cusseta that killed two Chambers County teenagers.

Meanwhile, the uncle of one of the victim's says he found out about his nephew's death when someone sent him a picture of the teen's lifeless body at the scene.

Casey Cunningham can barely speak about the death of 15-year old David Smith and his girlfriend, 14-year old Autumn Thompson.

Cunningham says a survivor of the accident allegedly posted three images of Smith's body on social media just after the crash.

"His head was busted open, there was blood everywhere. Kids need to understand life is precious, and not to just put it out there for everybody to feed on, see and gawk at," says Casey Cunningham, David Smith's Uncle.
Investigators say around 12:30 Tuesday morning, a 2013 Kia Soul, being driven by 18-year old Daniel Hornsby of Valley, struck the guardrail of a bridge along County Road 299 in Cusseta.
Investigators say Smith and Thompson were not wearing their seatbelts.
