  • New Orleans family has son’s body displayed in front of TV at wake

Body of dead teen was honored in a very unusual way as his corpse was positioned in a chair facing a television screen with PlayStation pads in his hands and his favourite snacks next to him. He also donned socks brandishing the likeness of Kyrie Irving, the Celtics player that wears the number 11 shirt, the same that Matthews wore. For his wake, they made a decision to have him in a recliner wearing a Kyrie Irving jersey and matching socks, playing National Basketball Association 2K, with junk food on the side.

Matthews is surrounded by snacks and a root beer. All of these things clearly meant a lot to Matthews, and it's a gesture that while unusual, is the send-off that his family felt would be the best representation of how they'd like to remember him; enjoying himself.

Food placed on the table next to him included a fizzy cola drink, Doritos and some chocolate cereal, which had been placed on the floor.

According to the Times-Picayune, Matthews was shot and killed while he was walking his dog on June 25.
