Two employees with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) reportedly resigned after an employee has a photograph of the other posing with a murder victim’s dismembered head.

The tasteless photo-op member Robert Page, an older man who was dismembered in November, WSB-TV reported. Christian Ponce-Martinez, 25, was indicted for murder with malice in connection with his death.

An employee of the agency medical examiner’s office allegedly posed for a photo made by another employee — with the head as the body had to be autopsied, and then passed reportedly around the office. None of the employees were publicly identified.

The bureau opened an investigation into the incident, and the employees were apparently given the opportunity to resign in lieu of dismissal.

A spokesman for the GBI, which may not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment, told WSB-TV that the agency’s “position on this is very inappropriate and it is directed.”

The agency reportedly announced a new policy in which personal photos are not to be taken in the medical examiner’s office.

Page’s widow, Lula, told the news outlet that the employees allegedly was “horrible.”

“Visually try to get my father’s head in a cooler is sufficient. But now you him and you take pictures?” Page’s daughter. “You take pictures, making light of a situation like that? I mean, you’re just as evil to me as that killer.”
