MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) –

A couple accused of murdering Memphis pastor Don Smith not only allegedly stole his car — they took “selfies” inside of the vehicle.

The photos surfaced as Smith’s family continues to deal with his shocking death.

Suspects Roger Reed, Junior and Lashonda Williams are seen smiling, smoking and even kissing in photos. It’s something one of his five daughters called sickening.

“We’re going to continue to press forward because I know that’s what he’d want us to do,” said Whitney Smith.

Smith spoke with WMC Action News 5 from the family’s flower-filled living room, where they’ve turned things over to a higher power.

“That’s been our biggest salvation; prayer,” said Smith.

Pastor Smith was found shot to death the day after Halloween. His body was floating in a Hickory Hill area pond, his wallet and car missing. Reed and Williams were arrested four days later in Greenville, Mississippi after being pulled over in the stolen car.

The photos snapped inside of the car were posted to Facebook just days after Smith’s death.

“I think knowing that they found who did it and got them off the streets, that was enough for me,” said Smith.

There is still little information concerning what may have preceded the shooting, but Smith said her dad would have stopped to help anyone in need.

And like he always did, the family will persevere.

“He’s one of those people, even in the midst of adversity, he’s going to find a way to make it through,” said Smith.

Pastor Smith has been laid to rest. Both Reed and Williams are charged with first degree murder.

Reed’s father posted on his Facebook page that he was praying for the Smith
