    This an awful story. He should be buried, but maybe his family doesn't have money for a traditional funeral. This is why some families resort to affordable cremation services to do the funeral service. Either way, the deceased must be respected and buried according with his religion.

    There is injustice in this world and it is sad that we can not do anything to change the legal system. The murder suspect should be found first guilty and afterwards to be incarcerated. Maybe in this way things would be different. Also, sometimes an expert witness testimony can be decide a sentence much faster.

    Sometimes a trial can go faster if the court or the attorneys resort to a NYC process server agency. Technical problems can so difficult to solve if the Court doesn't have the necessary equipment, but a legal agency can fix these problems with its latest technology and solutions.
