The downside of someone insanely famous losing their life is the people who try and profit off of it or just share sensitive information or photos to the public that should never get out.
Such was the case in the aftermath of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashing into a hillside in Calabasas, California when a first responder on the scene took graphic photographs and now the L.A. County sheriffs department is looking into the situation after those photos were shared with others.
“Some L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputies shared photos of the scene where Kobe Bryant, his daughter, Gigi, and 7 others lost their lives … and the photos included remains from the gruesome aftermath … TMZ has confirmed.
And, according to the report, at least one L.A. County Sheriff’s official had the photos on his cell phone “in a setting that had nothing to do with the investigation.”
To make matters even more worse and disgusting, the deputy in question shared these photos just to impress a girl.
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, multiple L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies who responded to the crash scene took photos that included remains. We’re told one of the deputies — a trainee — took photos and at some point went to a bar and, as one source put it, “He tried to impress a girl by showing her the photos.” We’re told the bartender overheard the conversation and filed an online complaint with the Sheriff’s Dept.
We’re also told the cell phone photos were passed around at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s substation — the first responders to the crash. Sources say deputies from other substations around L.A. County also took cell phone photos.”
TMZ also reported that members of the L.A. County Fire Dept. also shared these photos around and they are now being investigated.
