Staten Island, New York
Their daughter’s brutal murder crushed them, and a Rosebank couple’s grief only grew when an emergency medical technician posted photos of her badly beaten corpse on Facebook.
Their emotions still raw yesterday, two years to the day that Caroline Wimmer was slain, Martha and Ronald Wimmer announced they have sued Facebook, the social networking site; Mark Musarella, the emergency medical technician who posted the photo; the city; the apartment complex where their daughter lived, and others.
“I’m just very upset and traumatized over all this,” said Mrs. Wimmer, of Rosebank, fighting back tears on the steps of state Supreme Court, St. George. “I haven’t had a chance to heal yet. This is the second anniversary. We really need to improve our laws in New York. … My daughter’s picture was on the Internet and I can’t get it back.”
