But he called the revelation about the images the work of a desperate incumbent.

In addition to the images, Milton Wolf also participated in online commentary layered with macabre jokes and descriptions of carnage, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

The report about the images, which came from hospitals in the Kansas City area on both sides of the state line, drew criticism from medical professionals who called their display on social media irresponsible.
