OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The family of Jake Gardner on Thursday released photos of his burial with full military honors last week at Arlington National Cemetery.

Gardner, who served in the Marines, died by suicide last fall after he had been indicted by a grand jury for shooting and killing James Scurlock during a protest in the Old Market last summer.

Gardner’s family also released a three-page obituary asking for Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts to intervene and request that the grand jury transcripts be unsealed.
