Alfred Price (plaintiff) sued Evansville School Corporation (defendant) for the wrongful death of his son. At trial, the school conceded the boy died after he attended a school baseball game and was struck on the head by a baseball. Price introduced a photograph of the boy in his coffin. Price argued the photograph supported his testimony that the boy was in good health before the game and was properly buried. The school objected to the court’s admission of the photograph into evidence. The school argued the photograph related to no material issue in the case and would unduly prejudice the jury. The jury returned its verdict for Price. The school appealed the judgment, arguing the photograph was inadmissible.
