The family previously sued Williamson County Sheriff in order to block the release of any evidence relating to Naomi's April 30 suicide, as they believe things like graphic photos and videos could cause her loved ones more emotional harm.

During the hearing, it was alleged authorities have possession of "audio recording that was made, apparently, by a friend, and then provided to Mr. Stickland, and then provided to the detectives at a time when Ms. Judd was in distress before she shot herself.”

According to the documents, the judge asked the officer's lawyer if they had reviewed the body cam footage and questioned if it depicted Naomi's dead body. “They do," the attorney revealed, while noting that the sensitive elements of the footage would be redacted if made public.

As OK! previously reported, the country crooner took her own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Her youngest daughter, Ashley, discovered Naomi's wounded body in the moments after.

"The trauma of discovering and then holding her laboring body haunts my nights," the High Crimes star recalled in a heartbreaking essay. "I felt cornered and powerless as law enforcement officers began questioning me while the last of my mother’s life was fading."

"I wanted to be comforting her," Ashley continued of her mother's final moments. "Telling her how she was about to see her daddy and younger brother as she 'went away home,' as we say in Appalachia."
