Nikki Catsouras died in a horrific car crash in 2006. Within days of Nikki’s death, her father received an email that he thought to be a property listing. But that was far from the case. Instead, what he saw was the gruesome accident scene photos of their once-living 18 year old daughter accompanied by the following caption: “Whoohoo Daddy! Hey Daddy, I’m still alive.”
The California Highway Patrol apologized for the leaked images. Two CHP dispatchers leaked the pictures of the accident scene and Nikki’s horrific death onto the Internet.
Since that shocking experience, her family has spent lots of money in legal fees in an attempt to stop cyber bullies from posting the accident pictures online. Indeed, the car crash photo controversy has morphed into a case about cyber-privacy and harassment.
