Mother outraged after photo of officer posing with dead son surfaces

Kim Staton’s son, 28-year-old Omar Rahman, was found dead on August 8, and his death was ruled to be caused by a drug overdose. But since then, Staton has not heard much from police, and what’s worse, a picture appearing to how a police officer posing with her dead son has since surfaced.

The officer in the picture is wearing gloves and appears to be holding onto the arm of the body, which is blurred, and giving the camera a thumbs-up.

“When they come to a call, they’re supposed to be there to help and protect, not doing what he was doing with thumbs up and a smirk on his face,” Staton opined.

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

What’s more, the situation that led to the release of the picture is under investigation, as Staton says the police told her their forensic camera had been missing.

“If the police department doesn’t even know how it’s been released, then certainly, that’s a problem,” said former St. Louis Chief Dan Isom, later adding that the police chief should “see it, talk to the officer, get all the information relative to why they were there.”
