A small crowd of family and friends attended the funeral on Saturday for Major P. Harris, the 3-year-old boy who was the subject of statewide searches before his body was discovered earlier this month in Milwaukee.

The search began after police found that his mother, Mallery Muenzenberger, was shot and killed. A week later, police discovered that Harris was also shot and killed.

WKOW-TV reported that family members who attended the youth’s funeral said they were still trying to process what happened, but the memories help to ease the pain.
