According to reports, sheriff’s officer Joey Cruz allegedly showed individuals at a club in California images of Kobe’s decapitated body just two days after the collision.

The actions of those employees are beyond any acceptance. They had shared those pictures with random persons. Those actions have negatively impacted the lives of family members of the deceased. In the middle of testimony detailing photographs taken at the scene of the crash, Vanessa Bryant left the courtroom.
The incident happened on the second day of testimony in Vanessa Bryant’s federal civil lawsuit against Los Angeles County, which alleges that county fire and sheriff’s department employees shared images from the January 2020 helicopter crash in locations unrelated to the investigation, including a bar.
