Unbelievable! Dead Man Made To Sit On A Chair At His Own Funeral In Trinidad & Tobago
The dead man was embalmed in a sitting position, put in the tray of a hearse, according to Trinidad Express, and given an open-air final trip past the Prime Minister’s Office on the way to his funeral.
Dressed in a suit and in a chair, the murdered Che Lewis was put by Dennie’s Funeral Home in the back of a pick-up van and driven around Port of Spain on Wednesday.
TTPS Road Safety Co-ordinator Brent Batson told Express via a What’s App message that the funeral home’s manner of transporting the deceased will be investigated.
“The TTPS is disappointed in the reckless behaviour engaged in by a funeral home being circulated on social media whereby persons were seen seated in the vehicle tray seemingly as part of a funeral procession. Carrying persons in a dangerous manner is an offence Regulation 38 Rule 17 of the Motor Vehicle Road Traffic Act (MVRTA) with a $1,000 penalty and the TTPS will be continuing investigation into funeral company’s conduct on the road.
Lewis, 29, and Adlay Lewis, 49, his father, were shot and killed by Diego Martin at their home in First Trace, Bagatelle Lane, on November 15.
His funeral was broadcast live on social media, but not all viewers were aware that the man who was sitting at the church entrance was dead.
Following the funeral service at the St John The Evangelist R.C Church at Church Street, Diego Martin the bodies of father and son have interred the St John The Evangelist Cemetery.
The funeral home also intends introducing a new form of body disposal to Trinidad and Tobago.
It is known as alkaline hydrolysis, a process for the disposal of human and pet remains using lye and heat.
