The body of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy shot to death by police in Cleveland, Ohio, has been cremated, six months after he was killed, the family’s attorney told the Daily Kos

The Rice family has been paying $75 a day to store the body in case of additional medical examinations, rather than bury it and risk the agonizing process of exhuming it from the ground,the Daily Kos and The Washington Post reported.

With the criminal investigation into Tamir’s death still unfinished, despite demands from the family to expedite it, the financial and emotional burden of preserving the body became too great for his mother, Samaria Rice, according to the family attorney, Walter Madison.
