A photo said to be of the body of Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala, who was killed in a plane crash earlier this year, has been posted online, prompting a police inquiry.

A Dorset Police spokesman said: "We are aware that a picture reported to be of Mr Sala's body has been shared on social media channels and are disgusted that somebody did this."

He added: "It is clearly a very difficult time for Mr Sala's family and they should not have to endure additional pain that this shameful act will undoubtedly cause.

"We are investigating this incident and are working together with a number of agencies to establish how the picture was taken and who is responsible."

It happens more than you realise. People hack into phones/computers to get morgue photos of famous people or some people will sell or share the images themselves for morbid curiosity. It seems to happen more if the case is high profile. There are websites and subreddits dedicated to this sort of thing and some of them should be reserved for the dark web imo.

I don't recommend seeing it if you are at all squeamish.
