Vanessa Bryant has revealed the names of the officers who photographed the helicopter crash which took the life of her late husband Kobe Bryant, daughter Gianna, and seven other individuals.

Joey Cruz, Rafael Mejia, Michael Russell, and Raul Versales were all named in Vanessa’s lawsuit.

After more than a year of the death of Kobe, Vanessa Bryant revealed this Wednesday through Instagram the names of the officers who allegedly took and shared the images of the scene of the helicopter accident.

The widow of the Lakers legend shared on her account some photos of the lawsuit she filed against Los Angeles County, the sheriff’s department, the county fire department, and the four officers involved in the photos.

In another image, the accusation of officer Cruz is named. The lawsuit states Cruz allegedly showed photos of the crash to a bartender at the Baja California Bar and Grill two days after the accident.


In total, there were 12 photos posted by Vanessa on Wednesday afternoon on her Instagram about the demand for the taking and dissemination of the photographs.
