Default Photos from coroners office

I gave my son up for open adoption.
It will b 3 yrs next month that he was 16 and hung him self.
The coroner's office in San Diego wouldn't let me see him.
I wanted a copy of his photos that they took of him; how would I go about doing that?

CA code of civil procedure bars the copying of photographs taken for the coroner at the death scene. They are available for use only in a criminal action or proceeding that relates to the deceased, or as a court permits.

I wish to inform you that all photographs or video recordings of the body, or any portion of the body, of a deceased person taken by or for the coroner at the scene of death or in the course of a post mortem examination or autopsy are not available for inspection at any time pursuant to Section 129 of the California Code of Civil Procedure. Anyone wishing to inspect or obtain copies of photographs will be required to obtain a court order as outlined in Section 129.‚Äč You may contact an attorney and seek guidance in the matter.
