A shocking death photo of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was posted on the Internet last night, and the tragic TLC star's family is horrified by the shot.
"It is very distasteful. The family is very upset by the photo. It's horrible. There's no reason for it," Rob Goldstone, of TLC's management company, told The Post.
The sexy hitmaker was killed instantly Thursday when her speeding SUV flipped over and crashed in Honduras. Her body was lying in a morgue over the weekend, awaiting an autopsy.
The gruesome color photo shows Lopes, her head bloodied and hair messed. It appears to have been snapped in the morgue.
The singer is wearing a pink top with cartoon monkeys on it, her right eye appears to be partially open and one of her arms is draped over her waist.
An employee at one of the Web sites agreed the picture is "horrible, horrible . . . sick and wrong," but defended her fans' right to see it.
Another photo shows Lopes' coffin sitting in a morgue hallway as a cleaning woman mops around it.
Goldstone said Lisa's body will be flown home today in preparation for funeral services Thursday in Atlanta. A private memorial service will be held Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, cops in Honduras are focusing their probe on just how fast the sexy TLC star was speeding at the time of her fatal smashup.
Lopes was trying to pass a car on a Honduran highway when a truck approached from the other lane, forcing her to veer sharply to the left, crash into another vehicle and flip over.
Police Inspector John Cole said the seriousness of the accident shows that Lopes had accelerated — and speeding has been listed as the cause of the accident. But just how fast she was going has still to be determined, he said.
