Funeral Home Displays Shooting Victim On Motorcycle For Wake

April 30th, 2010 by

http://jalopnik.com – Rather than display a Puerto Rican shooting victim’s body in a boring casket for the wake, morticians at one San Juan funeral home presented the corpse on the man’s Honda motorcycle.

Just because David Morales Colón is dead doesn’t mean he can’t also be stylish. According to Primera Hora, the 22-year-old Puerto Rican man was murdered in his San Juan neighborhood last Thursday. As a tribute to the young man, the Marin Funeral Home treated the body and then dressed him up in his typical riding outfit complete with helmet on top of the Honda CBR600 F4 the man’s uncle had given to him.

As you can see in the video below, the mortician positioned the body as if he were riding his bike all the way to heaven, though it appears to be little solace to the crying friends and family in attendance.

And yes, this is real.
