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.

That is illegal. No one should be taking pictures of people in the hospital and release them without their permission.

Thank you for letting us know this crap is going on. It is so wrong to sell photos like that.

Any ideas who the seller is (his ex)?

Thank you for not buying them.

This has to be his fugly EX-wife.. I would like to punch that b*tch so hard she would be picking those gums out of her nostrils. Maybe this is why she pulled the plug so quickly. Photo op = $$$. The police need to investigate who is pimping these photos.

I can't say I'm surprised that there are photos of Gary on his death bed for sale. I just can't shake the feeling his Ex has something to do with this, she comes off like a heartless, narsistic whackjob.

The person peddling the pictures should be publicly named so if they have a job in LE or the hospital, they should be fired and/or sued promptly. Any pap or publication should be sued and harassed/boycotted promptly also. Tabloids and websites want to know why they keep losing money, copy sales and hits?
Anyone involved should be ridiculed.

Who ever took pictures of Gary during the time he was taking his last breath and after he died, then decides to sell the pictures for money is a sick-ass, cold-hearted, dumb-ass person. I hope that Gary's family members, not Shannon, sue the hell out of that person.

One, the people posting negative things, I"d like to be negative too, and wish cancer or some other terminal disease on you. Let it be painful and you suffer to a great degree... if your families suffer, even better!

Why weren't there any photos of MJ as the MJ Fans stated? Because he was already dead! He wasn't hanging around the hospital on life support... pretty much when MJ came to the hospital, it was already time to pack him and bag him. Not to mention he had the money for a team of security, who also happened to be at the hospital! Duh... that's why no photos were taken.

@marson - the tabloids (Enquirer, Globe, etc) - would not publish those photos. It's going to be on the internet, if anywhere at all. The tabloids would not do something as sick as that which would alienate their readers.
