According to TMZ, Kobe Bryant's widow Vanessa Bryant recently opened up about how tormented she's been after the photos of her husband's and daughter's remains were circulated among first responders.
Court documents reveal that Vanessa told Sheriff Alex Villanueva, "If you can't bring my husband and baby back, please make sure no one takes photographs of them." She also revealed that she saw one of the photos purported to be her late husband. "Since viewing the photo, I've been tormented with thoughts of who took it and whether it depicts my husband."
"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. I imagine Kobe watching over what occurred at that crash scene, and I am overcome by anger and emotion," she added.
Vannesa continued, "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."
"For the rest of my life, one of two things will happen: either close-up photos of my husband’s and daughter’s bodies will go viral online, or I will continue to live in fear of that happening."
