Marion County prepares for burial of Senator Pinckney

MARION, SC (WBTW) – Senator Clementa Pinckney will be buried Friday at the St. James Cemetery in Marion County near the intersection of Highway 501 and Highway 41.

Thursday, crews prepared for the burial service.

Marion’s Mayor Bobby Davis says they have been preparing all week for the welcoming home of Senator Pinckney.

He says tomorrow they are asking the public to form a corridor and wave American flags along Highway 41 around 3:30.

“We’re in the process now of demonstrating that tomorrow to show our condolences to that family, to let them know that we’re about the same type attitudes that was demonstrated in Charleston. We have faith, we believe in God and we want to demonstrate that love,” said Davis.
