ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A St. Louis Police officer has admitted to taking and sending graphic photos of the dead body of Carlos Boles, the man who allegedly shot and killed a U.S. Marshal and wounded another marshal and a city police officer.

This afternoon St. Louis Police, in a news release, said the officer had access to the crime scene as part of a  special weapons and tactics team.   Chief Isom has ordered he be taken off the SWAT team and his discipline will be determined at the end of an internal affairs investigation.

Still at question is if any other officers had access to the photo and forwarded it to anyone else.

In a news release , police called the photo incredibly distasteful , completely inappropriate and unacceptable.
