Mayor Sylvester Turner: George Floyd’s body returning to Houston

As mass protests continue to rattle cities across the country over the death of George Floyd, Mayor Sylvester Turner announced Saturday the remains of the Third Ward native who died in police custody in Minneapolis will be returned to Houston for burial.

“This is the same city that George Floyd grew up in, and his body will be returning to this city,” Turner said after a night of explosive protests. “So the focus needs to be on supporting and lifting up his family.”
