‘Look at the devastation.’ Man shares photos of wife, baby in casket after DUI crash

In a series of tragic photos posted to Facebook, Zach Kincaid closes a casket lid on his 29-year-old wife, Krystil, and unborn baby Avalynn Onix.

Krystil and her baby died following a Sept. 9 collision in Hemet, California, with pro boxer Marcos Forestal-Coutin, 28, who faces drunken driving charges, McClatchy previously reported.

Kincaid, who says Forestal-Coutin faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for the deaths, has launched a campaign to toughen drunken driving laws in California.

“How do I explain to my children this injustice?” Zach Kincaid wrote in his Facebook post following the Sept. 26 funeral. “My children and I have never felt so disposable… Look at the devastation left behind that is my family and tell me it isn’t time for change.”

His post, including photos of him cradling the body of his unborn baby, has been shared 255,000 times and sparked 45,000 comments.

Kincaid argues that lower penalties for drunken-driving deaths because an intent to kill can’t be proven are wrong..
