Two Metropolitan Police officers superimposed a cop's face onto the body of a woman murdered in a park alongside her sister.
Pc Deniz Jaffer and Pc Jamie Lewis were assigned to protect the scene after sisters Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, were found dead in bushes in Fryent Country Park in Wembley, north-west London.
The pair pleaded guilty to sharing photos of the bodies of two murdered sisters on WhatsApp..
Jaffer took four photographs and Lewis took two and one of the images was sent to a female colleague that had Lewis's face superimposed onto it.
They both breached the cordon to take "inappropriate" and "unauthorised" photographs of the bodies.
At a hearing at the Old Bailey on today, the officers admitted committing misconduct in a public office between June 7 and June 23 last year.
Jaffer, 47, of Hornchurch, east London, and Lewis, 33, from Colchester, Essex, had been arrested as part of a criminal investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) watchdog.
The charge against each of them stated that "without authorisation he entered a crime scene he had been assigned to protect, sending information about his attendance at the scene to members of the public via WhatsApp and taking photographs of the crime scene".
The pair, who were attached to the Met's North East command unit, were both suspended from duty following their arrests on June 22 last year.
The sisters' mother Mina Smallman, who has described the officers as "despicable", sat in court for the hearing.
