Vanessa Bryant is devastated by a report claiming that LA authorities shared some photos taken from the scene of the helicopter crash that killed his husband Kobe and their daughter, Gianna and seven other individuals last January.
According to the Los Angeles Times, deputies at the Los Angeles County sheriff shared graphic photos of the accident’s site, specifically in a hillside in Calabasas, California. They also quoted a public safety source who claimed that he saw one of the pictures on the phone of an official in a setting that absolutely had nothing to do with the crash’s investigation. Based on the Sheriff Department, this matter is presently under a thorough inquiry.
Vanessa’s lawyer said on Sunday that their client is devastated by these allegations wherein the Los Angeles County Fire Department and deputies of Lost Hills Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have taken and disseminated such photos from the crash site. The attorney further said that Vanessa herself went to the Sheriff’s office on the same day of the crash to request that the area should be designated as a no-fly zone. She also requested to have it protected from photographers.
According to the statement, it was very important for Vanessa to protect the dignity of all the victims and their families. During that time, Sheriff Alex Villanueva assured them that they would implement all measures to protect the families’ privacy and they understood that he worked hard to honor their requests.
On the other hand, Vanessa is grateful for that person who filed an online complaint and exposing such acts of injustice and for protecting human dignity.
Further, the statement mentioned that those first responders to the crash site should be trustworthy. They’re now demanding that those who are responsible for such violations should be disciplined and their identities are revealed to ensure that they will no longer disseminate these photos. Likewise, they request for an Internal Affairs investigation regarding these allegations.- Advertisement -
Meanwhile, the Sheriff is aware of these allegations and is also disturbed by the idea that deputies could allegedly do such an insensitive act. The Department will conduct a thorough investigation to protect the dignity of the victims of the fatal helicopter crash as well as the dignity and privacy of their families.
