On Friday a disturbed man was arrested for digging up Kobe Bryant’s grave in Newport Beach, MTO News has learned.
Kobe Bryant tragically died last month in a helicopter accident that took the lives of his daughter Gianna, and 8 other passengers. The entire nation mourned Kobe and Gianna’s death.
Last week, a disturbed man did the unthinkable – he “dug up’ Kobe and Gianna’s grave.
The man snuck onto the private gravesite, MTO News learned, with tools and began digging. Police say that the man peeled back the grass and began digging – and he dug fairly deep into the ground.
It’s not clear, however, whether the man reached either Kobe or Gianna’s coffins.
MTO obtained exclusive images showing police putting the man in handcuffs and taking photos of the crime scene.
The unidentified male had been seen wearing knee pads, and carrying equipment that he used to dig through the area where Kobe and Gianna have been laid to rest.
He appeared to focus his efforts on one particular corner of the area and what appeared to be rectangular cutting marks could be seen through the grass.
