A California teenager who allegedly livestreamed the drunk driving crash that killed her little sister and injured another teen has written a lengthy note to reporters in order to explain her actions, according to KPGE.
Obdulia Sanchez, 18, alleges that she only filmed the crash to please her 5,000 Instagram followers, in the eight page note sent to the news station.
“I made that video because I knew I had more than 5,000 followers,” she wrote, elaborating that she was hoping to make money to pay for her sister’s burial.
“It was the only way my sister would get a decent burial. I would never expose my sister like that. I anticipated the public donating money because my family isn’t rich.”
Sanchez offered up a bizarre apology, saying “Sorry for making that video. I look awful but I accomplished my goal.”
The suspected drunk driver also said that she “deserves” to be let out of prison.
‘I know I deserve to go home. I want to visit [Jacqueline’s] gravestone every day,’ she noted.
She also wrote about the album she plans to record in tribute to her sister, which will purportedly include a remix of the song Como Lo Flor by the late Mexican singer Selena. Incredibly, KPGE notes that the 18-year-old also wrote about a clothing line she was planning to start.
As previously reported by Crime Online, the California Highway Patrol alleges that Sanchez was under the influence when she rolled her car through a wire fence and a Los Banos field last month, killing Jacqueline Sanchez, 14, and injuring another 14-year-old passenger.
Following the crash, the suspect allegedly continued to film the bloodied and dying victims.
“Jacqueline, please wake up. This is the last thing I wanted to happen…I killed my sister…I don’t care. I killed my sister. I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care. I’m sorry, baby…rest in peace, sweetie,” the 18-year-old can be heard saying during the livestream. “Wake up baby, I’m f***ing sorry baby, I did not mean to kill you sweetie.”
Sanchez is due in court Friday August 25. If convicted, she faces 13 years in prison.
