Kobe and Gigi Bryant left the world three years ago in a fatal helicopter crash. Even to this day, the world remembers them as their story touched several lives. But following their death, the authorities in charge had a major mishap on their end. Their autopsy report images were leaked on the internet and went viral.
The local authorities were held accountable and sued by Vanessa Bryant for releasing private documents. Fans were also extremely disturbed by the horrific details that were stated in the reports. One fan said, “I just read Gigi Bryant’s autopsy and I’m literally in tears rn.” And another fan said, “The autopsy report of Kobe and GiGi Bryant’s bodies are truly sickening and devastating I r(ea)lly hope they didn’t feel that much pain man.”

I am such a cancer that I’ve been crying for the last 20 minutes because Kobe Bryant and Gigi Bryant’s autopsy reports were leaked, which is so disrespectful. On top of that I have lost all faith in anything holy. All of this is so wrong.

Kobe’s autopsy sketch was the only one leaked out of nine who were killed in the crash. The sketch showed that both his legs and an arm were severed in the crash and Bryant’s body had several lacerations with 30% burns. Authorities claimed that the body was identified after they spotted the infamous crown tattoo, which was inked near his wife’s name. The impact of the crash resulted in body parts being scattered yards beyond the actual site. The cause of death stated in all nine reports was labeled “blunt trauma” and the manner was labeled as an accident.
How did Kobe and Gigi Bryant die?
Kobe Bryant along with Gigi Bryant and seven others were on their way to Thousand Oaks for a game at the Mamba Sports Academy. Ara Zobayan was the Black Mamba’s trusted pilot for the day. Bryant traveled with Zobayan several times in the past. As they were on their way to their destination, Ara took a small detour due to heavy clouds and low visibility. The flight path was redirected via Calabasas.
Experts suspect that Zobayan may have been under influence, but all results were negative. Ultimately, the authorities said that the incident was caused due to pilot’s negligence. There were several ways the accident could’ve been avoided as well. They could have rescheduled departure time or Zobayan could have simply switched on autopilot.
