I'm not sure what's wrong with some of society today, but there's definitely a problem with spoiled punk brats who have zero regard for human life.
About 80 miles north of Detroit in Vienna Township a group of punk-ass teens took to an Interstate 75 overpass and thought it would be somehow amusing to toss chunks of concrete down at passing cars.
What happened after would result in a serious tragedy as a van driven two people, the passenger being 32 year old Kenneth Andrew White, of Mount Morris Township, who were driving Southbound along I-75 when one of the rocks hit his windshield.
The rock hit with such force it shattered the windshield and struck White in the head, causing his death.
Emergency medical responders transported the man to a nearby hospital but he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Authorities said four other cars were struck with large rocks and were waiting for police to arrive when the van was hit. No other injuries were reported however.
Officials said it's been an intense homicide investigation, with little to no help for several weeks.
Whites family was devastated; since the victim had a 5-year-old son, who would have to grow up without his dad.
White's family and the community are torn apart by White's death. Amy Cagle had to tell her 5-year-old son that his father was killed coming home from work.
Police then finally received a tip to a social media account where a group of five teens had been bragging about their rock throwing experience as if it were funny.
The Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton says that the teens are 15 to 17 years old and are being charged as adults with second degree murder.
Kyle Anger, Alexander Miller, Mark Sekelsky, Mikadyn Payne, and Trevor Gray have all been arrested on second-degree murder charges and will now head to court for the death of White.
"I just don't understand what a person could be thinking to even want to do something like that," said Alicia Waskoski, White's sister. "To know they're putting lives in danger by just throwing rocks over the interpass."
Investigators have been asking for the public's help tracking down the people who threw the rocks.
"We have a family here," Genesee County Undersferiff Chris Swanson said. "This guy's got a fiance. He's got a child. He's on his way back from a hard day's work and out of the blue comes a rock and he loses his life. We want to find out who's responsible for this."
"He took away a child's father, and the love of my life," Cagle said. "His stupid act took away a life."
Soon there will be some justice for the thugs responsible, but nothing will ever bring White back to his wife and child.
