Father Convinces Google to Remove Satellite Image of Son’s Murder Scene

Google will replace a Google Maps satellite image following a complaint by Jose Barrera that the scene, shot in 2009, clearly shows the body of his murdered teen-aged son surrounded by police. Barrera, of Richmond, California, told CNN he discovered the image of the crime scene last week. His 14-year-old son, Kevin Barrera, was shot and killed, and his body was found near a railroad track in Richmond in August 2009. The case remains unsolved. Because of the circumstances, Google Maps vice president Brian McClendon said, the company will replace the image in eight days, a process that typically takes one to three years.
