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.”

I just read the court documents Vanessa Bryant posted and honestly I understand why she wanted their names made public. What they did was inhuman.

People criticizing Vanessa Bryant for posting the names of cops who, for kicks, showed their drinking buddies pictures of her dead husband and child.
Think if that was you and how devastated you’d feel. Then, delete your accounts, because you’re scum.

I can’t believe people are in Vanessa Bryant’s comments saying she’s putting the cops in ~danger~ by releasing their names.
They took pics of her husband and child’s DEAD BODY and passed it around to their friends, family and strangers in a damn bar. That is psychotic behavior.

Deputies sharing pictures of deceased children is a certain kind of evil that I can’t even begin to process. God Bless Vanessa Bryant and all the families involved.
