In a statement sent to 22News, Mayor Richard Alcombright said quote:
"Funeral plans have been carefully thought out and include provisions to deal with any threat of protest. I am asking that all people refrain from any activity other than the continued outpouring of prayers, support and encouragement for Michael and his family."
