Puerto Rican funeral home presents shooting victim on his motorcycle [w/video]



If you thought you'd previously seen it all, well, you're wrong. Case in point: David Morales Colón, a 22-year-old Puerto Rican man who was shot to death last Thursday, and whose wake is now making headlines here in the United States mainland. How come? Well, suffice it to say that the funeral directors at Marin Funeral Home in San Juan's Hato Rey neighborhood have a flair for the unorthodox. For example, in 2008, they embalmed another young shooting victim and displayed his body standing up for the duration of a multi-day wake.

Back to the present: Yesterday and today, callers who stopped to pay their final respects to the late Mr. Colón got a bit of a surprise. Instead of the traditional presentation of the body in a casket, Mr. Colón's corpse, dressed in casual duds and sunglasses, was instead posed in a very lifelike position atop his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4. According to Puerto Rico's Primera Hora newspaper, the motorcycle was given to the victim by his uncle, and upon Mr. Colón's untimely demise, family members delivered the bike to the funeral home specifically for this unusual wake.

Lest you think this is some sort of insane hoax, here's the link to the local Primera Hora newspaper coverage, which features a multi-shot photo gallery, and here's the less detailed Associated Press wire version that's presently making the rounds. Finally, we've got a video posted after the jump. We'll say this: David Morales Colón rides into the afterlife in memorable style. Thanks to Joel for the tip, and thanks to Wes Siler for the bike ID.




This is the most freaky **** I've ever seen.

That is damn creepy. But I guess that represents him and his family. Maybe he was more comortable on his bike than in a suit.


but damn that is creepy.

Wonder what it is going to sound like when they un-bend him to place him in the coffin (or BBQ)? CRUNCH!

You can see where the rod comes out of his back and into the back of his scull.

This is maybe a bit over the top, but I do believe in remembering people as they where and remembering what they enjoyed in life.

In University, I knew a guy who had a really nice M3. As a student, he financed the ownership of the car by importing BMWs and AUDIs from Germany for people who couldn’t bother with all the paperwork and the trip themselves (this was before the super easy EU-regulation).

He crashed and died one evening, in his M3, leaving a fiancé and many friends behind. At his ceremony, the cake was a huge BMW emblem, lined with black text: BMW M3. Many thought it tasteless. I found it perfect.
