Police Officer Gives Thumbs Up in Photo With Deceased Man

A St. Louis mother is demanding answers after a photo emerged showing an officer posing with her dead son.

Kim Staton’s son, 28-year-old Omar Rahman, died of an accidental drug overdose, according to the medical examiner’s office. Only weeks after her son’s August 8 death, a photo surfaced of a North County Police Cooperative officer posing with the deceased man, KMOV[1] reports.

Staton says the police are “supposed to be there to help and protect, not doing what he was doing with thumbs up and a smirk on his face.”

Staton’s attorney is also repulsed by the photograph.

“I have seen thousands and thousands of forensic photographs, I have never seen a staged photograph of an officer next to a deceased body,” said attorney Antonio Romanucci.

Romanucci is calling for an investigation into the photograph.
