SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — The death of a young model in England raises the question of who should be allowed to control the online legacy of a deceased person.
The model’s death had been ruled a suicide. But her family said that she was in the process of breaking up with her husband and didn’t believe she killed herself.
The family wanted Facebook to allow them to access her messages to prove to the coroner that she hadn’t been contemplating suicide. But, as the San Jose Mercury News reported, a judge ruled against the family.
