Hundreds Gather For Funeral Held for Disabled Man Who Drowned as Teens Watched

Hundreds of people gathered at a Florida church for the funeral service of a disabled man who drowned to death while a group of teens taunted him.

Jamel Dunn, 31, died July 9 in a Cocoa retention pond. His body was found July 14.

Dunn’s death sparked outrage after it was discovered that the teens, ages 14 to 18, were heard in the video laughing at him as he drowned. Florida prosecutors will decide whether to file charges against them.

Florida Today reports that on Saturday many mourners at Zion Orthodox Primitive Baptist Church wore red at the family’s request. Some wore T-shirts with photos of Dunn on them.

Dunn’s red casket was taken by horse and carriage to Riverview Memorial Gardens for burial.
