California man says Google Maps image shows slain son

RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - A San Francisco Bay Area man says a Google Maps satellite image near a rail line shows the body of his teenage son, who was shot and killed in 2009.
    
Richard Barrea wants the Internet giant to take down the image out of respect for his son, Kevin. The 14-year-old's body was found on a path near railroad tracks that separate North Richmond from San Pablo on Aug. 15, 2009. His slaying remains unsolved.
    
Richard Barrea told KTVU-TV over the weekend he became aware of the image earlier in the week. It was not clear whether he asked Google directly to take it down.
    
An e-mail to Google was not immediately returned. The company says most of the satellite data it acquires is about one to three years old.
