Puerto Rico wake features victim atop motorcycle
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A funeral home in Puerto Rico that made international headlines two years ago is at it again.
Marin Funeral Home has embalmed the body of a young man and put the corpse atop a motorcycle in a hunched-over racing position. The body wears a black cap, black sunglasses and a long-sleeved black T-shirt.
Local television station WAPA says the unidentified 22-year-old shooting victim will be buried Wednesday.
Calls to the funeral home were not returned Tuesday.
Two years ago, the funeral home embalmed a 24-year-old man and kept the body standing upright for during a three-day wake.
