A Charleston wedding photojournalist is under investigation for allegedly posting a picture of her late husband’s wedding day on Facebook.
Sandra Braggs posted the image on Tuesday, according to Charleston County Sheriff Steve Anderson.
Bragg’s husband, Brian Bragg, died in 2015 after suffering from dementia and depression.
Braggs, who is also a photographer and singer, has not responded to a request for comment.
Anderson said he received a complaint about the photo on Tuesday.
He said he’s reviewing the incident.
“It’s just not appropriate to do that, especially when we’re at a point in our lives where we’re grieving the loss of someone so dear,” Anderson said.
“If it was a normal wedding, I would have seen it and spoken to her and tried to do the right thing.”
A Facebook post about the incident has been shared nearly 1,000 times.
The photo was originally posted to Facebook in June.
The Bragg family released a statement saying Bragg is a loving mother, grandmother and sister who “lived the American dream and dedicated her life to her husband, father, son and daughter.”
“She was one of the hardest working, dedicated people I have ever met,” the statement said.
Brags is a former employee at the Charleston County Department of Corrections, according a spokesperson for the agency.
She worked as a probation officer at the time of her husband’s death.
“We deeply appreciate the outpouring of support from the Charleston community and beyond,” the agency said in a statement.
“She was a loving wife, mother and sister.”
Bragg was born in West Virginia and grew up in Charleston, where she worked as an interior decorator before moving to the state in 1998 to work for the Corrections Department.
In 2007, she was appointed as an assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, a position she held until her retirement in January 2017.
She is the only African American woman to hold the post.
Brattleboro native and former Charleston Mayor R. T. Bennett called Bragg “a true inspiration.”
“My prayers are with Sandra Bragg and her family at this very difficult time,” Bennett said in the statement.
A spokesperson for Anderson said the department is aware of the incident and will take appropriate action.
“The Charleston County Sheriffs Office is fully cooperating with the Charleston Police Department on this matter,” the spokesperson said.
