In Missouri, a mother of an African-American man found dead in a St. Louis area home is demanding an investigation, after a leaked photo showed an officer smiling and giving a “thumbs up” over the body of her son. The photograph was leaked to local station KMOV, which blurred the officer’s face. It shows the officer, who is white, wearing gloves and smirking as he grips one arm of Omar Rahman’s body. A medical examiner ruled Rahman died of an accidental drug overdose, but his mother says she has not heard from police since the day of his death last August.
