News, Vanessa Bryant says sheriff’s deputies violated the dignity of her husband and daughter : detailed suggestions and opinions about Vanessa Bryant says sheriff’s deputies violated the dignity of her husband and daughter .
A few days after the 2020 memorial for Kobe Bryant, the basketball star’s widow, Vanessa, was home watching TV with family when she learned that Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies had shared gruesome photos of the helicopter crash that killed her husband and the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
“I bolted out of the house,” Vanessa Bryant testified Friday in federal court in Los Angeles. Once she found a spot where her other three daughters could not hear her, she said, “I broke down and cried, and I wanted to run down the block and just scream.”
Bryant, who repeatedly burst into tears on the witness stand, said she felt betrayed by deputies she had trusted to protect her family.
“I expected them to have more compassion — respect,” Bryant testified. “My husband and my daughter deserve dignity.”
