Celebrity autopsies, graphic death photos breached, report says

Employees in the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office have sneaked peeks at graphic photos and autopsy reports in recent celebrity deaths, including those of Mick Jagger girlfriend L’Wren Scott and actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, whistleblowers say.

ME workers not involved in the high-profile cases, or not authorized to see the files, have breached the computer system’s security, insiders told The Post.

“Too many people have access to the files — crime scene photos, autopsy reports — and share it with coworkers,” an ME source said.

ME officials took steps to crack down on the rampant peeking, but their efforts have proven less than successful, a source said: “There’s a million holes.”

ME spokeswoman Julie Bolcer denied the whistleblower’s claims.

“Only authorized employees who use our systems for their daily casework have access. There are extensive security measures in place,” she said.
