After crashing during an illegal street race, an Alabama woman was charged with the murder of an innocent grandmother. However, before the body was even cold, the accused killer recorded a disturbing message for the victim’s family.

A Birmingham woman was charged with murder after police say she crashed head-on into another car while street racing. AL.com reports that Carmesia Flannigan, 22, was arrested and booked into Jefferson County Jail after hitting and killing 52-year-old Brandy Ballard and fleeing the scene, according to police documents.

Along with murder, Flannigan was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of an accident with injury. However, it was the young woman’s subsequent message to the victim’s family and her accusers that has sparked even more outrage.

After posting a $175,000 bond, Flannigan uploaded a video message that went viral. In the clip, the belligerent woman hurls expletives, insults the deceased victim, and insists she’s innocent and will beat her murder charge, the Daily Dot reports.

“That old a** lady swerved in my lane,” she says in the first video, seemingly addressing criticism from people online. She also denies fleeing the scene.

Flannigan accused the police of a conspiracy, insisting that they only arrested her because she is still “alive” and “was there” at the scene. She then placed the blame on the victim by arguing that it was Ballard’s own fault she died.

“I ain’t killed nobody. You hear me? I ain’t killed nobody. This lady ran into me,” she later said. “They ain’t charging her with s***. They charging me because I was alive, and I was there, basically. That’s how the police work. But I’m not mad. B****, I handle my s*** like a motherf***** OG would. Yeah, she dead. She dead. but I didn’t do it. The f***? … She did it to her motherf****** self because she ran into me.”

Flannigan later removed the post but eventually uploaded a second longer video rant. In it, her mother comes to her defense as the pair hurl expletives at critics and promise to win the criminal case against her.

Expectedly, Ballard’s surviving family members were upset by Flannigan’s lack of sympathy and brazen insults toward their deceased matriarch. They are hoping that the videos will show the court that the grandmother’s accused killer deserves a harsh punishment.

“I was so mad I cried,’’ said Tabatha Moore, Ballard’s niece, after viewing the videos. “It’s very frustrating. It’s humiliating.”

“There’s no remorse,’’ Moore said. “There’s no heart involved. I want it stopped.”

After the video was published, Flannigan’s criminal history was brought to light. Just months before she was charged with Ballard’s death, Flannigan was charged with first-degree domestic violence with a firearm. She was accused of firing a gun and wounding a woman in the foot. A year earlier, she was charged with first-degree armed burglary, in which she allegedly broke into a home with the intent to commit a theft.

With each new charge, Flannigan was released on bond. Ballard’s family hoped that the court would revoke Flannigan’s bond following her outrageous social media posts.

“It’s just so uncalled for,’’ Moore said. “We haven’t laid (Ballard) to rest yet and we’re being harassed. Who does that to someone’s family?”

Flannigan is not only incapable of taking responsibility for her actions but has also demonstrated that she holds no remorse for the death of an innocent woman. In fact, she has callously expressed nothing but contempt for Ballard and her family, and she even considers herself the victim.

Flannigan has repeatedly proven to be a menace to society. Hopefully, Ballard’s family will receive justice through the court system and will finally find some closure.
