It’s been nearly 20 years since Susan Smith strapped her sons — 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alex — into their car seats before rolling her vehicle into a lake, drowning them to death.
The case made national headlines when the then 23-year-old mother, for nine days, made tearful pleas to the public for the safe return of her boys, who she initially claimed were abducted by a black man during a carjacking.
When Susan Smith finally confessed to police that she killed her children, she was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. She was convicted on July 22, 1995 and sentenced to life in prison.
As the 19th anniversary of Michael and Alex’s death approaches, what happened to their father, David Smith?
In an interview with HLN’s Nancy Grace Monday night, David Smith said he’s happily remarried with two children, Savannah and Nicholas.
