The GBI has identified the two medical examiner employees who resigned after a photo surfaced of one man posing with the head of a dismembered homicide victim from Clayton County.

The former employee who appeared in the picture was Landen Wilson, and the ex-employee who took the photo was James N. Brown, GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles confirmed to AJC.com.

Wilson had worked as a death investigation specialist for about six and a half years, while Brown was employed as a graphics and visual arts specialist for 25 years, Miles said.

She also sent a statement Wednesday, which said: “Both employees were allowed to resign in lieu of termination in order to sever ties between the employees and the GBI immediately. Under GBI policy, an employee that is fired has the right to appeal that decision.”

She had previously described the incident as “highly inappropriate,” and she said it is now against GBI policy for personal photos to be taken in the medical examiner’s office.

The victim Wilson posed with was Robert Page, a 76-year-old grandfather who was found dismembered in his neighbor's home in Morrow in November, AJC.com previously reported. Christian Ponce-Martinez, 25, was charged with malice murder in connection with the death.

The GBI was performing an autopsy on the body in Decatur after it was recovered from the home in the 6200 block of Fieldcrest Drive.

His widow, Lila Page, told Channel 2 Action News on Tuesday that hearing about the photo is extremely disturbing, and none of his family members wanted to see it.

“Awful that somebody would be that evil,” Lila Page, who had been married to Robert for almost 50 years, said.
