Amanda Reagan Smith, Mother of Devon Epps’s Arrested for the Murder of her Son
Amanda Reagan Smith, the mother of murdered 7 year old Devon Epps’s has been arrested by police in Greenville County, SC and charged with Devon’s murder. Well I can’t say we are too surprised to hear this news, only glad that it has finally occurred. Since first reporting on the death of Devon Epps and the rather bizarre tale told by Amanda Smith, it was rather obvious that her story did not pass the smell test. Some how a knife wielding carjacker uses a pillow to kill, hey right.
Smith told investigators that a carjacker, armed with a knife, attacked her and Devon near White Horse Road back on August 12th. The young mother said she was forced to watch as the attacker smothered Devon with a pillow.

Nearly three months after Devon Epps was murdered and Amanda Reagan Smith told police that her son was murdered by a carjacker, she was arrested and charged with murder. What another senseless and tragic act of a life taken far too young by the acts of a selfish individual. We are glad to see justice served … JUSTICE FOR DEVON.

Amanda Raegan Smith was charged with murder today in the Aug. 12 death of Devon Chad Epps.
The arrest culminated a nearly three-month investigation that started when Smith, 27, reported a knife-wielding car jacker forced himself into her car near an Interstate 85 frontage road, Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis said.
Forensic evidence revealed facts inconsistent with the defendant’s version of events, he warrant alleges.
Asked why it took several weeks to make an arrest, Loftis said, We wanted to make sure we covered every aspect and answered every question we had.
Smith, who authorities said lives at 12 Theodore Drive in Greenville, was arrested and jailed without bond at the Greenville County Detention Center, Loftis said.

“Investigators have concluded that Amanda Smith is responsible for the death of her son,” Loftis said during a news conference in Greenville. “We are confident that we have the suspect in jail now.”
It was not immediately clear if Smith had an attorney. A woman who answered the phone at the jail did not know if she had an attorney.
Loftis said during the investigation that Smith always answered questions from police and continued providing tips, though he would not elaborate. Loftis also would not say if she changed her story.
“We had our doubts and suspicious, but we have to follow the tips,” Loftis said.

Thank God!!!!! I have been following up and checking in at least 4 times a week for an update on this tragic murder of this child and unfortunately there have been so many of these shady stories of murder and lies going around that we aren’t blind to it any longer, we know when a story sounds fishy, and this was the fishiest. It’s sickening, what a selfish bitch, was motherhood too tough?, did it take too much time away from her partying schedule? Awww, what a poor woman, how she has suffered. Put her away, throw away the key and fry her!!! She deserves nothing more…UUGH!
I was locked up with Amanda Smith for 7 months and you would never have thought that she had a sonn that had died. She has also desided that she is now gay and is “girlfriends” with the girl who was arrested for the murder of a woman here in Greenville, SC and she cut off her hands and feet. You my have heard about it. I hope and pray that she (Amanda) gets what she deserves.
i hope she suffers for the rest of her life!!after devon died i was around her and she acted like nothein
sad sad story! at least that little boy is in heaven now & not living the horrible life he was born into. May the devil put her threw everything she put her son thru.
I’m devonvs Grandmother devon did not get justice.I know my grandbaby is in heaven.And that’s whats keeping all of us going,because one day we will see him again.I just hope that BITCH! gets her ass whiped everyday,and maybe she will died.Maybe the way devon died.And that’s still not justice not for 7 years.She mudered a child.She did not sell drugs or run over somebody,She killed our grandbaby and you can’t bring that back.we love you devon love gran gran.
[...] story did turn out to be utter rubbish and Amanda Raegan Smith was arrested and charged in the death of her 7 year old son Devon Epps. Almost 3 years later,Amanda Raegan Smith entered an Alford plea and the judge found her guilty [...]
I lived beside amanda and devon for years, I knew devon from the day he was born. I partied with Amanda for years and we WERE friends. Devon was dropped off to me often to babysit so she could go out. When I heard of Devons death I knew she did it from things she often said about how he was affecting her life. I believe in justice but Devon was ALL boy very very smart 7 year old. It’s sad she may get out soon. Devon will be gone forever. I still have a picture of him on my mantel in the living room. Nothing can ever bring him back. Why should she be aloud to live her life, she took one away. My heart goes out to Patty, tommy and Chad. The grandparents and dad. She has NO remorse for what she did, I knew that at the funeral. And to Amanda the scratches I saw on your right forearm I knew were from Devon as you killed him because he was a strong little boy and left handed. You never fooled me!!!
I WAS AMANDA’S ROOM MATE FOR 9MO.I COULD FEEL HER LOVE & PAIN FOR WHAT HAPPEN TO HER SON DEVON! SHE LOVED HIM VERY MUCH!!! PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BELIEVE WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO BELIEVE!!!!
