    I don't get it. What could it possibly take 5 months to determine? You shot the kid dead. It's been 5 months. Let his mother bury him. [​IMG]

    It's pretty disturbing how easily some of you are manipulated by the clique's chumming the water.

    People hold funerals and often don't bury the body for financial or legal reasons.

    He was buried at his funeral. The OP is wrong.

    Lets see - who started the OP?

    Okay - that explains everything.

    Um, guys? 777's article says there were funeral services; it does NOT say he was buried. It says the boy was laid to rest (which most of us would infer to mean he was buried; but the reporter for this article took most of their material from NBC reports, which tells me the reporter put this thing together in a hurry, and may not have meant what we interpreted).

    I quoted directly from that article and it says he was buried.

    The family's attorney says he hasn't been buried.

    Upon further research, the boy has NOT been buried.

    Feel free to re-read the article; I just did, and it does not say anything about a burial.

    You need to look at the bold words directly under the second picture down which is of the young boy.

    Then the bold words are incorrect. He has not been buried yet.

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. My apologies

    However, that article was dated December; the most recent report, from the article I posted a link to, clarifies the family's lawyer saying the boy was NOT buried.

    Investigation aside, no one is saying that the boy can't be buried, that I can find. It's the family's decision to not bury him, because they think he might be exhumed for the investigation. The family is incurring the $75/day cost. No one is making them do this.

    Any speculation as to why is just that - speculation. There are a number of reasons they might be doing this. The two most prominent are:

    1. The reason stated - that they are afraid his body might be exhumed later for the investigation. I see this as unreasonable. The coroner has already examined him, and the shooting was caught on tape. What need would there be for further examination of the body?

    2. Public sympathy - they may have been advised by their lawyer to not bury him, in order to gain sympathy for the investigation. It may have been delayed just for these articles to appear now, and keep the story in the public eye.

    Either way, it's ridiculous that he's not been buried yet. But, honestly, it was their call, not anyone else's call. They are incurring the fee on themselves. No one is pushing it on them.
