The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has released Kobe Bryant and 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant’s bodies to the Bryant family.

The remains of the NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and her daughter Gianna Bryant who were killed in a helicopter crash on January 26, were released on Sunday, February 2. The bodies were released after the officials’ determination of their identities and the official cause of death which is blunt force trauma.

The coroner’s office identified the other bodies after doing thorough testing and DNA analysis. The 56-year-old NBA All-Star Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, 50-year-old helicopter pilot Ara Zobayan and 45-year-old Sarah Chester were identified through fingerprints on January 28. The 14-year-old teammate of Gianna named Alyzza Altobelli, her 46-year-old mother Kero Altobelli, 38-year-old basketball coach Christina Mauser and 13-year-old Payton Chester were identified two days later.

All nine victims including Kobe and Gianna were tragically killed when the private helicopter they were traveling in crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, California on January 26. The coroner’s office confirmed that all the victims’ bodies except the Altobelli family have been released to their families.

The LA Lakers legend’s wife, Vanessa Bryant broke her silence on the accident by posting an emotional tribute on Instagram on January 29. She posted a photo of their family and relayed her appreciation in the caption by thanking the millions of people who’ve shown their support and love. The mother of four wrote that she and her daughters were completely devastated by the tragic loss of his adoring husband Kobe and her sweet and loving daughter Gianna. She also extended her grief to the other families who have lost their loved ones on the incident.

Kobe has been honored by his fans, family, and friends since the crash was reported. On January 31, a special tribute was dedicated to the NBA superstar at the Lakers’ first game since his death. The night of tribute was started with applauding performances delivered by Usher who sang “Amazing Grace” and Boyz II Men, who rendered their version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
