A Detroit mother who was devastated after her son's murder is feeling even more broken hearted tonight.

Zachariah Boose was killed in Green Bay, but his mom says she has not been allowed to view his body.

The Brown County Medical Examiner's Office said their facilities don't allow families to see the bodies. Instead, she's been told she'll have to pay an area funeral home to take her son, embalm him and help bring him back to Detroit.

That would cost her about $1,600.
