Kobe Bryant’s widow demands punishment for those who took photos of her husband’s corpse

Vanessa Bryant, the widow of the late Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant, expressed her frustration at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Apparently, the Sheriff’s department does not want to expose the names of its deputies who allegedly captured and shared photos of the tragic January 26, 2020 helicopter crash, which included her husband, daughter and seven other people.

The reason for keeping names off the public record is to protect the four MPs, as their personal information and details can be easily searched online. These deputies may face a harsh reaction.

Vanessa Bryant had previously filed an amended lawsuit in federal court to her original civil rights lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the Sheriff’s Department. Said complaint added deputies and the LA County Fire Department

Photos of a deceased Kobe Bryant and the other victims were released online last year, much to the chagrin of Vanessa, Lakers fans and the general public.

It got to the point where California Assemblyman Mike Gipson introduced legislation that would make it illegal for first responders to photograph a deceased person for any purpose other than official law enforcement business. The punishment can range from one year in jail to up to $ 5,000 in fines.

As early as May 2020, Vanessa had filed a legal claim for the improperly taken accident photos. The Lakers legend’s widow’s claim was based on the “emotional anguish and mental anguish” caused by the photos. (GG) (Fielding)
