A mother is outraged after finding out photos of her dead son’s body were posted to Twitter after he was killed by a man driving a car.
Trevius Williams, 16, was killed on Sunday and his mother, Connie Coles, wants to know why the driver isn’t behind bars.
The 19-year-old driver of the car, who has not been named, tweeted about being drunk on codeine before hitting and killing the boy. After he struck the boy with his car, he then tweeted again.
“I just killed a man,” with a photo of Trevius Williams’ body and a followed by a “RIP”.
“I’m angry because detectives told me that there’s no alcohol or drugs involved,” Connie Coles told First Coast News. “Well how would you know if he wasn’t tested?”
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says there were no signs that the driver was impaired, and the investigation is on-going. And also stated that posting the photo of the boy’s body is not illegal.
“Who does that? You have to be some kind of monster,” Coles said. “I don’t even want to go back home. I don’t even want to think of, I have to pack up his clothes. I have to give away his shoes.”
“My son is never coming back.”
