    Basically the report will go this way:
    1) The woman's estate (although it seems doubtful she has one) can choose to pursue the matter civilly (as a tort) and sue them. This would basically just be to get reimbursement for damages caused to her.
    2) There was a crime caused, so no matter what the police will be involved and seek punitive measures, hopefully including restitution and prison time with inmates who have seen this tape.

    (So yes.)

    It's as plain as the (rather large) nose on my face.
