Vanessa Bryant has expressed her unease with the leaked pictures of the scene where both her husband Kobe and her daughter Gianna lost their lives following a helicopter accident in January 2020.
Kobe‘s widow filed a suit back in September 2020 against the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department for taking and showing pictures of the crash.
“It infuriates me that the people I trusted to protect the dignity of my husband and daughter abused their positions to obtain souvenirs of their deaths, as though possessing pictures of their remains somehow makes them special,” Vanessa said, according to TMZ.
“I imagine Kobe watching over what occurred at that crash scene, and I am overcome by anger and emotion.
“I feel sick at the thought that deputies and firefighters have gawked at photos of my husband’s and child’s bodies without any reason. I also feel extreme sadness and anger knowing that photos of my husband’s and daughter’s bodies were laughed about while shown at a bar and awards banquet.”
