Jun Lin’s funeral to be held today

$70,000 raised for murder victim

Nearly two months after Jun Lin’s dismembered body was found in Montreal, a public funeral will be held for him on Thursday in a Montreal funeral home according to the National Post.

A public memorial was held last weekend when his mother spoke about how his death had devastated the family. “We still believe that most people here are very kind, but this heinous crime happened in Canada. It’s made me reconsider what kind of place this is,” Zhigui Du told CBC.

The funeral was announced by Concordia University, where Lin was studying computer science.

Concordia said last on Friday that $70,000 has been raised in Lin’s honour. His family is now setting up an award in his memory.
