According to the Tampa Bay Times, detectives in Largo, Florida attempted to use the fingerprints of a man killed in an officer-involved shooting in March to unlock his phone.
Linus Phillip was pulled over by Largo police for illegally tinted windows. The Tampa Bay Times reports officers Matthew Steiner and Prentice Ables noticed the smell of marijuana in Phillip’s car. During the arrest, Phillip attempted to drive away. He was dragging Steiner who was still partially in the vehicle. According to the Largo Police Department, Steiner withdrew his weapon and fired in self-defense. Phillip was later pronounced dead at Largo Medical Center.
Shortly after his body was released, two detectives went to the funeral home and unsuccessfully attempted to unlock Phillip’s phone by holding fingers from the corpse to the fingerprint sensor.
