Before he could testify, Vanessa’s lawyers argued in court that such tests were “cruel.” New York Times, Which first reported the story. When asked by Cobb’s wife about Zoom, a lawyer representing Los Angeles County told her, “It’s not harassment. It’s just a lawsuit. It’s up to me to do my job.” Vanessa replied, “I don’t have to go through this.”
The Los Angeles County attorney asked her to look at some graphic images and messages, some of the photoshop that was sent to her on social media, while others other than the sheriff’s deputy tried to argue that she had suffered emotionally. A transcript of the statement said Vanessa put her hand in front of the camera and said she didn’t want to see it.
Vanessa further confirmed that she had not personally seen any pictures of her husband and daughter’s bodies. He had the clothes Kobe and Guyana wore at the time of the crash, he added, “I had to recover all their belongings because I know people are sick and I want to take pictures of them and share them.”
“They got in a lot of trouble,” he added about Kobe and Guyana. “And if their clothes represent the condition of their bodies, I can’t imagine how cruel someone could be and have no respect for them or our friends, and just share pictures as if they were street animals.”
