A Pennsylvania teenager has been accused of murdering a classmate and posing with the victim’s body for a “selfie,” according to news reports.

Authorities say 16-year-old Maxwell Marion Morton of Jeannette, Pa., fatally shot 16-year-old Ryan Mangan in the face before taking a photo with Mangan’s body and uploading it to Snapchat, a smartphone application that allows users to send images that are deleted a few seconds after they’re received, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Morton sent the image  to a friend, who saved it on his phone before it was deleted, according to Fox News. The friend showed the photo to his mother, who turned the image over to police, according to Fox News.

Related News: Apple will no longer unlock most iPhones, iPads for police, even with search warrants

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. The Washington Post published an article titled Apple will no longer unlock most iPhones, iPads for police, even with search warrants.

The key is the encryption that Apple mobile devices automatically put in place when a user selects a passcode, making it difficult for anyone who lacks that passcode to access the information within, including photos, e-mails and recordings. Apple once maintained the ability to unlock some content on devices for legally binding police requests but will no longer do so for iOS 8, it said in the new privacy policy.

“Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data,” Apple said on its Web site. “So it’s not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8.”

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. The Washington Post published an article titled Montgomery teen’s many online party photos lead to drug and gun charges, police say.

A Montgomery County 11th-grader sold marijuana from his family’s home in Gaithersburg — with the apparent blessing of his father — before the teenager was done in by more than 600 photographs he had posted online of him and his friends partying in the home, according to court documents.

Police said that there were 45 guns in the home, including an M16 assault rifle, and that the father had a loaded gun when a SWAT team raided the place Oct. 11.

“The house has been a problem house in the neighborhood, as some neighbors around the house have pointed out,” officers wrote in an arrest affidavit. The case was made public Thursday.
