Pastor Earle Fisher, who is supposed to be running the service spoke at the private funeral and expressed concern about the development of this case.

"With all of the pomp and circumstance that elected officials and civic leaders have put around this heinous murder, we could do something to bring the people who have been involved in this to accountability and justice a whole lot sooner" Fisher said.

"The reality is there is a body being buried just about every day in Shelby County, and often we have people who are in powerful positions that have created policies that make these bodies pile up".
