Facebook picture on Mass. cop's page draws fire

A New Bedford cop is being investigated for posting a picture of a dead person

New Bedford Standard-Times

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The photos on Facebook are often eye-opening, but a New Bedford cop is being investigated for possibly posting a picture of a dead person.

The photo depicts an apparent crime scene with the body face-down on a couch and the floor is cluttered with trash.

New Bedford police spokesman Lt. Jeffrey P. Silva said the picture - if it is authentic - may depict an overdose victim. It is unclear whether the person is a man or woman.

“There will be an internal investigation to see if this is true,” Silva said. “Right now, this is just an allegation.” Silva did not confirm the identity of the female police officer alleged to have posted the picture.
