This may seem very creepy and weird to you, but apparently this is very common for funerals in Puerto Rico.
Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, a 26-year-old man who died on March 3 after getting shot 15 times, was dressed in his favorite clothing for his funeral. He was sporting the Air Jordan 7 Retro "Sweater" sneakers, while also holding a blunt in hand.
A Puerto Rican man who was repeatedly shot and killed earlier this month has been laid to rest ‘just as he was in life’ in an extremely unconventional funeral. Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, 26, was shot 15 times in the Villa Carolina neighborhood of San Juan on March 3, with police saying they have no leads on the crime. Describing him as a ‘happy and very active person’, the family decided against a coffin for the funeral service in favor of a chair, sitting Diaz Beato with his legs crossed, dressed in his favorite clothes and with a cigarette between his fingers. Finally, as a ‘surprise’, the funeral home chose to leave his eyes open.
