Bungling cops try to use dead chap's fingers to unlock his smartmobe

They showed up with Phillip's pone and attempted to unlock the device by holding the dead man's hands up so his finger could touch the phone's fingerprint reader.

The Supreme Court has held that police can not search a cell phone without a warrant, but the situation is legally complicated when the phone's owner is dead.

The funeral home where the body was built in Clearwater, came law enforcement officers worked in a completely different city.

Police said that they pulled Phillip over to search because his vehicle's windows were illegally tinted, and that they could smell marijuana coming from the auto, according to the station.

Later that weekend, Alferova posted photos on Instagram of herself meeting with Trump and attending the Miss Universe pageant. And it's substantiated by social media posts that show he slept in Moscow the night before the Miss Universe contest.

"I just felt so disrespected and violated", Victoria Armstrong told the Tampa Bay Times. Before police could search Phillip, he jumped back in the auto and tried to drive away while an officer was still partly in the vehicle, according to the police account. Dead people do not have Fourth Amendment protection against unlawful searches and seizures, but Stetson University Law Professor Charles Rose noted that the deceased's family have an interest in his remains.

"The law has been most cruel, really unforgiving to a dead person", Nwabueze told the Times. It was found out that the detectives who visited Phillip's corpse and tried to use his finger to unlock his phone did not have a warrant. "While Chaney said detectives didn't think they'd need a warrant because there is no expectation of privacy after death â€" an opinion several legal experts affirmed â€" the actions didn't sit right with Phillip's family. Most recently, federal and local investigators bought up iPhone cracking boxes that can break into an Apple smartphone in a matter of hours.
