N.M. Trooper Probed In Crime Scene Photo Leak

September 07, 2012  | 

A New Mexico State Police patrolman is the subject of an internal affairs investigation after images of a crime scene showing the body of a man killed in an officer-involved shooting were leaked to the public.

New Mexico State Police Chief Robert Schilling said the patrolman allegedly used his personal cellphone to take photos of Samuel Pauly, 34, who was shot to death by state police at his Glorieta home last October, and then shared the pictures with others.

Schilling said the senior patrolman who took the pictures was not one of the officers who was present during the shooting but was called in to help secure the scene.
