There's David Morales Colón, sitting on the Honda his uncle gave him, down in Puerto Rico.



Looks pretty life like, doesn't he? What??

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.
I wonder who shot him and why?

What I find interesting is the position of his left ankle.

So, I wonder what position Larry Craig will be posed in at his funeral?

What's flipping amazing is he was shot at 27 times with the very potent 40cal pistol. He was hit with 19 rounds.

He was talking to a 14 year old girl who caught two of the rounds with her legs.

The corpse looks good for that much trauma with that weapon.

His baseball hat appears to be nailed to the back of his neck. And his shirt tail looks like it's nailed to the bike seat. Maybe that helps keep him from falling off?

It's creepy to me that his hat seems to be tucked into the collar of his shirt. Makes me wonder if that's to hold some "bits" in.

Yeah there's gotta be some kind of support going up his back to hold him up.

Ironically, I have to attend a viewing tonight and the funeral tomorrow (my wife's aunt). Somehow, I don't expect anything quite like this....

It almost looks like there might be a rope tied to the back of his hat, hidden under his collar, and the hat is stapled to his forehead to keep his head pulled up and back.

Impressive work there, whatever it is.
