Jessica was riding in a car driven by her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Sord, now 26, when he crashed the car; she was killed when the car crashed into a pole and rolled over, while he suffered only a broken wrist. In November 2014, Sord pled guilty to aggravated DUI causing a fatal accident, a felony, and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison.

.

In a lawsuit brought in 2010, the Mejia family alleged that Cook County investigators arriving on the scene photographed Jessica in the nude without medical justification. The suit adds that investigators failed to treat decedent with the dignity and the respect due her by removing her clothes, by photographing her nude body in various positions none of which were required by protocol, and by allowing passersby and other responders to view her naked person.

.

At the time, a Cook County Sheriffs Office spokesperson called the allegations bizarre, adding, There were multiple independent witnesses on the scene that night and crime scene photographs taken which would have prevented the scenario described from happening. Were sorry for the familys loss.

.

Now that the case is set for trial, though, the Chicago Tribune reports, the Cook Countys sheriffs office isnt denying that the photos were taken, and the Trib was shown copies of the photos by the Mejia familys lawyer. Now, though, Cook County says they were necessary procedurally: The family suffered an unimaginable loss, and the crime scene photos were taken as our officers investigated this crime and were instrumental in securing a conviction against the person responsible for this tragic death, a different spokesperso told the paper. In no way were these photos intended to cause harm to the family.
