Dad shares heartbreaking pictures of dead wife and child in coffin to help petition for stricter driving laws


A mourning father is pushing for stricter drunk driving laws after his wife and unborn child were hit and killed by a boxing champion in California who was believed to been intoxicated.

Zach Kincaid posted images from a September 26 gathering at McWane Family Funeral Home that showed Krystil Kincaid, 29, and the daughter they planned to name Avalynn Onix in a casket.

‘A drunk driver speeding down a two lane highway at 85+mph in the wrong lane around a blind corner destroyed my family,’ he captioned the selection of images in a social media post.

He said that because his wife was eight months pregnant, Marcos Forestal, 28, won’t face as many years behind bars for taking his daughter’s life.

Kincaid added: ‘The max sentence for killing my wife and daughter is 10 years max. The state of California doesn’t think there was intent, but I know driving recklessly in that manner, he didn’t intend anything good…. my daughter’s due date was October 9th, a 36 week old fully developed baby isnt considered a person in the state of California.’

The dad parented 11-year-old daughter and two sons ages eight and four with his deceased wife. He also has a 14-year-old stepchild.

Images from the joint funeral show family members looking into the coffin of their loved ones and taking it in turns to hold the baby who was also pictured laying across Krystil’s chest.

He has raised $51,020 on a GoFundMe me page for the family, exceeding their $50,000 target. petition needing 150,000 signatures had around 79,000 Saturday night.

Champion boxer Forestal was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and has pleaded not guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. He next appears in court November 1.

Devastated Zach said the children had gone to the hospital expecting to welcome a new family member.

‘They thought they had a baby sister here,’ Zach said. ‘They got the worst news of their life. They were told that they don’t have a mom, or a baby sister, anymore.’

In a Facebook post, he explained that sharing the traumatic news with his children was ‘the hardest thing I have ever done’.

‘I told my 2 daughters and my 2 sons that a drunk driver killed their mom.

‘The pain and anger I feel within my soul is immeasurable, my heart is broken. Until we meet again Raven…’
