A San Francisco Bay Area man says a Google Maps aerial image shows the body of his teenage son, who was shot and killed in 2009.
Jose Barrera wants the Internet giant to take down the image out of respect for his son, Kevin. The 14-year-old’s body was found on a path near railroad tracks that separate North Richmond from San Pablo on Aug. 15, 2009. His slaying remains unsolved.
Jose Barrera told KTVU-TV over the weekend he became aware of the image earlier in the week. It was not clear whether he asked Google directly to take it down.
An email to Google was not immediately returned. The company says most of the overhead images it acquires are about one to three years old.
