A graphic photo tweeted out by a longtime sports writer in the Dominican Republic appears to quash any claim that Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was robbed after the car wreck that killed him.

The previously undistributed photo tweeted Wednesday by Bienvenido Rojas of Santo Domingo appears to show a bloodied Ventura with a watch on one wrist and a bracelet on another while a man wearing hospital gloves takes a camera phone picture of the watch. Omnisport deemed the photo too graphic to show.
Rojas’ tweet, translated by Twitter, reads: “Yordano Ventura died instantly and [his] garments were not touched.”
According to The Kansas City Star, a forensic scientist provided the photo to Rojas and told him that Ventura’s family had been given a bag containing jewelry and documents claimed at the scene.
