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.
