Google Maps image of boy’s dead body to be removed


Google Maps is replacing a satellite image that shows the body of Kevin Barrera, a 14-year-old who was murdered in 2009 in Richmond, California. The boy’s father, Jose Barrera, apparently found out about the picture just a few days ago, commenting “When I see this image, that’s still like that happened yesterday.” Google says it will take eight days to swap it out. “Google has never accelerated the replacement of updated satellite imagery from our maps before, but given the circumstances we wanted to make an exception in this case,” Google Maps VP Brian McClendon told the San Francisco Chronicle. I don’t care to reproduce the sad image here, but the San Francisco Chronicle did. ” Google to fix map image showing slain boy ” (SF Chronicle)
