Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna buried in unmarked grave




 

NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, who both died in a Jan. 26 helicopter crash, were buried in an unmarked grave to protect the privacy of the family.

"Kobe's family want to ensure total privacy and not turn the cemetery into a circus and upset other families," a worker at California's Pacific View Memorial Park and Mortuary told The U.S. Sun. Bryant was laid to rest there Feb. 7 but the exact plot was not disclosed.

Fans have been gathering at the wrong plot, decorating it with yellow and purple flowers, and memorabilia, after a report that incorrectly pictured another plot as Bryant's.
