This is not Delial. Here is footnote 336, relating to the description of Navidson's Delial:

336. This is clearly based on Kevin Carter's 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of a vulture preying on a tiny Sudanese girl who collapsed on her way to a feeding center. Carter enjoyed many accolades for the shot but was also accused of gross insensitivity. The Florida St. Petersburg Times wrote: "The man adjusting his lens to take just the right frame of her suffering must just as well be a predator, another vulture on the scene." Regrettably constant exposure to violence and deprivation, coupled with an increased dependancy on drugs exacted a high price. On July 27, 1994 Carter killed himself.
