  1. That clip should not be online. As for the family and other people who know that family it is horrible to see that scene online. How someone even dare to put that online where woman/mother/wife was taken out from house by coroner in “black bag”. Who post that to youtube? That should be banned. I would like to get in touch with someone who did that video. I am able to pay for removing it. thanks.

    That is really inappropriate especially that court give restriction for any media and information to be shared online about that tragedy. Police officers was informed about that illegal share. We are awaiting for someone to get back to us before we start legal action.

    1. The video has been disabled while an investigation and court case is underway.
      It will remain like that until a guilty sentence, to which it may be re-enabled.
      Until then the video will not available.
      We send our condolenses to all the family.
