First of all, I want to say I debated posting this, but figured it was News, it will just be interesting to see how this thread is handled. I'd say have respect for this poor girl, but you can call me disrespectful for posting the links I have. Either way, it's a great topic for discussion and I only ask you read the article before posting and keep it classy, San Diego. Also, please don't post any of the pictures contained in the links below directly into the forum. They are extremely graphic photos of a victim of a horrible car crash.

From Newsweek Article:
This is a story about a photo—an image so horrific we can't print it in NEWSWEEK. The picture shows the lifeless body of an 18-year-old Orange County girl named Nikki Catsouras, who was killed in a devastating car crash on Halloween day in 2006. The accident was so gruesome the coroner wouldn't allow her parents, Christos and Lesli Catsouras, to identify their daughter's body. But because of two California Highway Patrol officers, a digital camera and e-mail users' easy access to the "Forward" button, there are now nine photos of the accident scene, taken just moments after Nikki's death, circulating virally on the Web. In one, her nearly decapitated head is drooping out the shattered window of her father's Porsche.

The Web is full of dark images, so perhaps the urge to post these tragic pictures isn't surprising. But for the Catsouras family, the photos are a daily torment. Just days after Nikki's death, her father, a local real-estate agent, clicked open an e-mail that appeared to be a property listing. Onto his screen popped his daughter's bloodied face, captioned with the words "Woohoo Daddy! Hey daddy, I'm still alive." Nikki's sisters—Danielle, 18, Christiana, 16, and Kira, 10—have managed to avoid the photos, but live in fear that they'll happen upon them. And so the Catsourases are spending thousands in legal fees in an attempt to stop strangers from displaying the grisly images—an effort that has transformed Nikki's death into a case about privacy, cyber-harassment and image control.

Really interesting article:

The car crash pictures are located here; not for the faint of heart:
WARNING EXTREMELY GRAPHIC ACCIDENT PHOTOS
Don't click the video, there may be a trojan in it.

Anyway, yeah, I saw this about three of four days ago.

All the guys posting that shit, just a bunch of dicks. I mean, I'm not going to lie, I looked at the pictures, but its so wrong that that person sent the email to her dad.
Thats what I hate about the internet you know, people do this cruel shit, only because they aren't there in person to get their ass beat.

Grr. Internet pisses me off sometimes.

There is nothing left to identify. That's horrible.
I lost my aunt and uncle in a car accident last year, I didn't want the funeral to be open casket because I felt that the bodies they showed didn't do them justice. Their bodies were damaged and crushed so it took alot of work to make them look normal, when I went to see the bodies I could tell it just wasn't them. I can't begin to imagine what this family is going through right now, losing someone so close is hard enough as it is, but to see pictures like this circulate the internet is terrible.

Even by my standards, this is horrible. The really fucked up thing is that they're spending a fortune on legal fees to gets the pics removed, and it's not going to make any difference because no matter what, there will still be images of the crash everywhere. I'm not trying to make light of the situation, but it's kind of like Crissy Moran trying to get all of her nude pics pulled from the web...

I've been staring at them all day. And I can't be the first one to do so.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

I grew up visiting rotten.com on a daily basis. Not as active as it used to be. Updates are monthly if at all.

Remember kids, she was high on coke when she stole her dads car. They can dress it up however they want, but no-one is innocent.

I never said she was innocent. Her parents should use these pictures as an anti-drug campaign.
