International update: Columbia

This happened one time at Reddington's. A 17 year old murder victim in Columbia was dragged from his own wake and carried into a stadium by 200-300 of his friends. How fortunate that his wake coincided with a home game...

Christopher Jacome, a 17-year-old Colombian soccer fan, was gunned down while playing the game. He was a fan of the Cucuta Deportivo Colombian soccer team. After his wake, friends from "Barra del Indio" took the cadaver from the funeral home and paraded it around and then into the stadium in an attempt to pay homage to the slain soccer fan.

Officials say a crowd of 200 to 300 fans stormed into the stadium with the body creating an uncontrollable situation. The boy was a member of 'Barra del Indio,' a particularly aggressive Colombian soccer fan club.

No word yet on whether they charged him the regular admission price. Strange...
