Riley Branstrom will be laid to rest in Michigan after a memorial service Friday in Hightstown.
The family of the 18-year-old whose body was discovered near the train tracks at the Princeton Junction station last week after disappearing will hold a memorial service at the Glackin-Saul Funeral Home, 136 Morrison Avenue in Hightstown from 3p.m. - 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. A funeral will be held in Gladstone, Michigan followed by burial at Holy Cross Cemetary in Escambia, Michigan according to his obituary in the Times of Trenton.
