HOUSTON (AP) — Mourners will be able to view George Floyd’s casket Monday in his hometown of Houston, the final stop of a series of memorials in his honor.A six-hour viewing will be held at The Fountain of Praise church in southwest Houston. The viewing is open to the public, though visitors will be required to wear a mask and gloves to comply with coronavirus-related guidelines.Floyd’s funeral will be Tuesday, followed by burial at the Houston Memorial Gardens cemetery in suburban Pearland, where he will be laid to rest next to his mother, Larcenia Floyd.George Floyd died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after he stopped responding. His death has inspired international protests and drawn new attention to the treatment of African Americans by police and the criminal justice system.Former Vice President Joe Biden plans to travel to Houston to meet with Floyd’s family and will provide a video message for Floyd’s funeral service. A Biden aide on Sunday described the plans of the Democratic presidential candidate. They did not include attending the service.Biden expects to give the family his condolences, said the aide, who discussed Biden’s plans on condition of anonymity.Previous memorials have taken place in Minneapolis and Raeford, North Carolina, near where Floyd was born. At the Minneapolis tribute Thursday, those in attendance stood in silence for 8 minutes, 46 seconds, the length of time prosecutors say Floyd was pinned to the ground under the officer’s knee before he died.Floyd was raised in Houston’s Third Ward and was a well-known former high school football player who rapped with local legend DJ Screw. He moved to Minneapolis several years ago to seek work and a fresh start. His face now appears on a mural in his old neighborhood, and his name was chanted by tens of thousands last week at a protest and march in downtown Houston.
The partly nude body of 23-year-old Marissa Fraser of Lot 24 Public Road, Number 4 Village, West Coast Berbice was on Monday morning fished out of a canal at Number 5 Village, West Coast Berbice.Marisa Fraser’s body was pulled from a trench in BerbiceThe body of the part-time waitress, which had multiple stab wounds to the face and head, was discovered a short distance from a pool of blood at Back Street, Number 5 Village.A woman known as ‘Bebi’, who lives a short distance from where the body was discovered, said that at 6:30hrs she saw a trail of blood in the centre of the street which leads to the village cemetery, but it was not until three hours later that a farmer saw the body in a corner of the canal.“There was only a top on. Her slippers (were) on the ground right there. There was a lot of mud on her face, and when the Police came, they had to wipe off some of the mud to see if anybody could identify her,” Bebi explained.The dead woman’s aunt has said that from all indications there was a struggle between the waitress and her attacker(s). She is of the belief that there was more than one person who attacked and sexually assaulted Fraser. This, the aunt believes, is evident from the amount of mud that was caught in Fraser’s hair and the burns on her arms, which suggested that she had? also been torched.Police found a part of a scissors at the scene, and this they believe to be the murder weapon.Fraser had last been seen by her cousin at home shortly after midnight, as she was preparing to go to a wedding reception in the next village.Fraser leaves to mourn her mother and two brothers. Police investigations are continuing. (Andrew Carmichael)
The Chairman of DLFM, Paddy Simpson expressed his disappointment at the decision of the BAI to award Highland Radio the broadcasting contract for North Donegal. “I and my fellow shareholders in DLFM are very disappointed with today’s decision by the BAI. DLFM put forward very strong proposals for a world class radio station which would have served the people of Donegal very well,” said Mr Simpson.“Our proposals were very inclusive of all the communities in Donegal and would have seen a new studio in Carndonagh as well as a studio in Letterkenny. We had exciting plans for new programme formats and new voices which regrettably will not now be brought to air. “I want to thank the DLFM team for their hard work and commitment and while equally disappointed, I know they will join with me in congratulating Highland Radio and wishing the station continued success.”DLFM was led by a consortium of experienced and successful Donegal business people. In addition to Paddy Simpson and Charlie Collins, shareholders in DLFM included Philip O’Doherty of E&I Engineering, Letterkenny businessmen Enda Nicholls of Arena 7 and Mark McCloskey of Evolve Menswear as well as Glenties man Brian McGill of the Harcourt Hotel; the Falcarragh-born publican Danny Doohan; former Mayor of Letterkenny and digital media expert Damien Blake and his wife Mary G. Blake, a teacher from Ballybofey.
