Gary Coleman Death Photo -- For Sale

6/7/2010 12:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Coleman Death PhotoTMZ has learned a series of photos of Gary Coleman in the hospital are being shopped around to the media -- and in one of the photos ... Gary is already dead.

We've seen one of the photos and declined to even look at the rest. In the pic, Gary is in the hospital, his eyes are closed and he is hooked up to a ventilation machine. It is not a pleasant sight.

The person selling the photos claims to have four photos -- the one we were shown was taken about an hour before he died. The final photo was taken after he was taken off life support.

Asking price is in the low five figures.

We're guessing someone will buy it. It's just the way it is.

I will boycott any publication which publishes those photos. Not because it is Gary Coleman, but because to it is simply wrong to publish such photos of anyone. Friggin' ghouls.

She certainly is the first person who popped in to my mind as being on the top of the "most likely" list

So, 10 days after Gary Coleman passed away someone is trying to sell his death photo. Michael Jackson is "dead" for 11+ months and yet still no death photo has emerged. The EMT's, the hospital staff, the staff at the coroners office and the Forest Lawn mortuary staff all had the opportunity to take a 'death photo' (the body has been reportedly temporarily in-vaulted at Forest Lawn for 9.5 weeks) and NO ONE wanted to make an extra couple of bucks..? Come on...

You shouldn't even talk TMZ. I've seen you post and publish photos before, that shouldn't have been made public ! Shame on you. Acting all innocent. I'm not speaking of "death/dead?" photos, but lots of others that should of never been published. I love you guys, but what a joke!

I'd have said yes.
I'd like to see them, I honestly have never seen anything with Gary Coleman in it, like tv or movie or anything, so it wouldn't disturb me, it'd just be cool.
Morbid interest, sure, but death is a part of life, and we should embrace that, there's no god, our bodies just rot, why not study them?
I, for one, would love to see the death photo, for the same reason I loved watching "The Bridge".

You know who will buy it. The Enquirer, Globe, the tabloids! People please don't buy them. How can anyone take advantage of this situation. Is there no decency in this world? Michael was tormented in life by these rags and so was Gary. Gary had alot of medical problems since he was a small child and like Michael someone always wanted something from him including his family. TMZ good for taking the high road. We don't want to see Gary like that on the worst day of his life. We will remember his good times. RIP Gary

No. 9 (Oh, sounds so James Bond like) but anyway, it wasn't TMZ, but there is a photo of a dead MJ, on the gurney, circulating. I was surprised to just see it surface now. The "photographer", and I use that term loosely, was on Joy Behar's show on HLN last week. I was surprised to see it actually. That photographer was on her show, along with "another" long time paparazzi, that day. TMZ gets lots of BS for stuff they post, understandably so, but this photo has nothing to do with them. Yes, MJ, on the gurney, dead. Something I didn't, nor wanted to see.
