The family of a New Orleans teen tragically killed in a shooting last month wanted their loved one’s funeral to honor him just the way he lived—so they had his body embalmed and posed it in a recliner with a PS4 controller in hand and a bag of Doritos on the side. Eighteen-year-old Renard Matthews was fatally shot while walking his dog on June 25. His mother, Temeka Matthews, told WGNO that her son was “a bit of a homebody” who loved the Boston Celtics, so she and the family decided on a non-traditional way of remembering him at last Sunday’s wake.
