Anthony Avalos’ funeral saw hundreds of people—many of whom didn’t even know the boy. The ten-year-old boy was abused for more than five days and eventually died of injuries. This incident reportedly happened shortly after the young boy came out as bisexual.
Guests of this weekend’s funeral donned superhero shirts to show their support and remembered the boy for his constant smiles.
Avalos died on after he was brought to the hospital with severe head injuries andd cigarette burns. His mother and the mother’s boyfriend were charged with murder after he died.
