Vanessa Bryant Reveals Names of LAPD Officers Who Took Photos Of Late Husband Kobe Bryant's Remains After Helicopter Crash

Vanessa Bryant has released court documents that revealed the names of the officers who took photographs of Kobe Bryant‘s remains following the tragic helicopter crash that claimed his life, as well as their daughter, Gianna Bryant, and seven others last year.

In a series of posts on her Instagram, Vanessa let her followers read the lawsuit in full.

At one point in the suit docs it reads that one of the officers, who did not have an active role in the investigation “shared the photos with a personal friend with whom he played video games with every night”.

Vanessa filed the suit against the Los Angeles County, the sheriff’s department and LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva in September of 2020, following reports of the officers sharing the images months earlier in March.

The lawsuit cites emotional distress, negligence and invasion of privacy.

“At the moment the deputies snapped photos of Kobe and Gianna’s remains, they created a harm that cannot be undone, and the Department’s response has only exacerbated that harm,” the lawsuit says.

Vanessa has also filed another wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company operator, Island Express Helicopters.

“Vanessa Bryant revealed the names of those disgraceful police officers thats shared that shared the images . Good on her,” one fan wrote of the widow sharing it.

Another added, “The fact that Vanessa Bryant didn’t burn down this entire police station is incredible to me. I feel sick reading this.”

Kobe Bryant's Helicopter Crash Caused By Pilot's 'Spatial Disorientation,' Investigation Finds

The National Transportation Safety Board has revealed their findings on their investigation of the deadly helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and 7 others.

The pilot suffered from “spatial disorientation” after flying through clouds and becoming disoriented.

The official definition of “spatial disorientation” is the “inability of a pilot to correctly interpret aircraft attitude, altitude or airspeed in relation to the Earth or other points of reference.”

One investigator said “the pilot doesn’t know which way is up.”

The deceased passengers also include Alyssa Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, John Altobelli, Christina Mauser, Payton Chester and Sarah Chester, as well as pilot Ara Zobayan.

The crash took place on January 26, 2020, and on the one year anniversary, celebrities paid tribute to Kobe, Gianna, and the other lives lost.

Celebrities Pay Tribute To Kobe & Gianna Bryant on The One Year Anniversary of Their Deaths

Many stars have paid tribute to Kobe and Gianna Bryant, who passed away in a tragic helicopter accident one year ago today.

The crash, which shocked the world and was just the start of a dismal year, also claimed the lives of seven others: John Altobelli, an Orange Coast College baseball coach; Keri Altobelli, his wife; Alyssa Altobelli, their daughter; Christina Mauser, a basketball coach at Kobe’s Mamba Sports Academy; Payton Chester, a player on the Academy’s team, Sarah Chester, her mother; and Ara Zobayan, the pilot.

Alex Rodriguez was one of the first.

“I can’t believe it’s been one year since we experienced the tragic loss of my brother, my friend, Kobe Bryant. It still doesn’t feel real. Kobe was so much more than just a basketball player and he was destined for even more greatness. His journey was truly just beginning and it still hurts so much thinking about how much good he had left to do,” he wrote. “I miss our conversations. I miss texting about family, business, sports and music. I miss him.

Alex continued, “I’m also thinking about GiGi and her tragic loss, along with the other passengers on the plane. To all the families and friends who were affected by this tragedy, we are all thinking of you. Today, and really everyday, remember that our time is short. Hug your loved ones. Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. Work hard and remember to smile. RIP, Kobe. Love you, Mamba.”

Many fans have also paid tribute to the Lakers star and his daughter by messages online and visiting the many murals located around Los Angeles. You can see just a handful of them in the gallery below.
