NPR will bring live coverage of the funeral for George Floyd, 46, who was killed by police in Minneapolis on Memorial Day. The service will be held at The Fountain of Praise in Houston.

ELWOOD, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana funeral home is inviting the public to attend the funeral for an 89-year-old Army veteran after authorities couldn't track down any of his relatives.

George R. Green, who died Dec. 5, was a decorated Korean War veteran. 

Madison County Coroner Danielle Noone says she had to make funeral arrangements for the lifelong Elwood resident without his family's input because none of Green's relatives came forward or could be located.


Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-MD., is being remembered by family, friends and colleagues at a Baltimore church. Former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are among those honoring the House Oversight Committee chairman and civil rights advocate who died on Oct.17. Watch the funeral service live.
