Kobe Bryant Autopsy Photos Leaked
Kobe’s Sikorsky-76 chopper came down in fog in the Calabasas mountains northwest of Los Angeles.
Vanessa Bryant, his wife of 20 years, was reportedly horrified when California cops were accused of allegedly showing off horrific photos of the tragedy, which killed nine people.
Vanessa’s attorney, Craig Lavoie, described the allegations that police shared the photos of victims’ remains as “an unspeakable violation of human decency, respect, and of the privacy rights of the victims and their families.”
Lavoie called for those who shared the photos to “face the harshest possible discipline, and that their identities be brought to light, to ensure that the photos are not further disseminated.”
Who Leaked Kobe Bryant’s Autopsy Photos At Helicopter Crashed Site
A young Californian police officer allegedly leaked photos of Kobe Bryant’s body to a woman at a local bar, and Vanessa’s lawsuit claimed that within 48 hours of the crash, photos had spread to at least 10 members of the department.
One deputy allegedly took between 25 and 100 photos of the crash scene on his cell phone, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also included allegations that Police Officer Joey Cruz showed crash photographs to a bartender at the Baja California Bar and Grill in Norwalk, California.
One of the customers described his alleged actions as “very, very disturbing” and allegedly made “a crude remark about the state of the victims’ remains.”
The lawsuit claims that on the day of the crash Deputy Rafael Mejia, who was assigned to the crash site, was sent 15 to 20 photos from another deputy.
He then allegedly walked over to chat with a female deputy who wasn’t involved in the investigation – and for no reason other than “morbid gossip,” sent them to her cellphone.
Mejia testified that he sent about ten photos to Cruz and expressed regret when he said: “Curiosity got the best of us.”
Another officer, deputy Michael Russell, allegedly sent photos to a friend with whom he “plays video games nightly.”
Cruz testified in court, saying he made a “misjudgment” when he decided to share the photos.
