Allison Kerry's Death

The photographer at Kerry's crime scene

The Crime Scene Photographer was a woman working for the Metropolitan Police Department as part of the Crime Scene Investigation unit. Therefore, it was her job to take photos of various crime scenes for the purpose of the conservation and documentation of potential evidence. At one point of her career, she got involved in the case of serial killer John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After Detective Mark Hoffman and a SWAT team led by Lieutenant Daniel Rigg and Officer Lamanna, had found the humiliated corpse of Detective Allison Kerry in one of Jigsaw's traps, the photographer was called to the crime scene in a basement area. While taking a look at the corpse, whose rib cage had been ripped apart, she discovered a bullet shell clamped between the device and the body. As Detective Fisk informed Hoffman about this, the latter ordered the shell to be examined for fingerprints. (Saw IV)


The photographer is killed by a spike

Later that night, the police and special agents Peter Strahm and Lindsey Perez found three more crime scenes in Daniel Rigg's Apartment, the Alexander Motel and finally at an elementary school. When the SWAT entered the school, they soon found Morgan and Rex, who had been trapped there and whose bodies had been impaled by numerous metal spikes. While Rex had died from blood loss after Morgan had removed the spikes, his wife was still alive. The officers called for the CSI team and Strahm and Perez again who arrived shortly afterwards. However moments after her arrival, one of the forensic investigators accidentally activated a device which shot a spike in Perez' direction. Peter Strahm managed to pull her away but instead the spike pierced the head of the photographer, while Lamanna and the other officers watched in horror. (Saw IV)


Not much can be said about the photographer's personality due to her short screen time.
