Kobe Bryant Crash Site Photos Have Been Deleted, Sheriff Confirms in Response to Vanessa's Statement

The photos that were taken from the site of Kobe Bryant‘s helicopter crash site have been deleted, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has confirmed.

On Sunday, Kobe‘s widow Vanessa Bryant released a statement via her legal team in which she expressed that she was devastated to find out that deputies had publicly disseminated photos from the crash site.

“First responders should be trustworthy. It is inexcusable and deplorable that some deputies from the Lost Hills Sheriff’s substation, other surrounding substations and LAFD would allegedly breach their duty,” the statement read. She also called for the deputies involved to be disciplined for their actions.

Villanueva says that the deputies have been identified.

“That was my No. 1 priority, was to make sure those photos no longer exist. We identified the deputies involved, they came to the station on their own and had admitted they had taken them and they had deleted them. And, we’re content that those involved did that,” he said (via NBC News).
