Clearly, this is just salt on the wound for an already grieving family.
The Fight For PnB Rock
For those who practice the Muslim faith, a Janazah is a meaningful ceremony that must occur within 72 hours following someone’s death.
Sources told TMZ Rock’s mother flew to la from Philly to identify her son’s body and get it back home for the Janazah. During the meeting in the medical examiner’s office, tensions apparently got so high the LAPD had to be called to prevent any physical altercation.

Since then, the medical examiner has released an official autopsy report. The report states PnB rock died from a gunshot wound to his back and chest and finalized it as a homicide. Despite all the behind-the-scenes drama with authorities And family, the medical examiner’s office has wrapped up its process and has given permission for funeral proceedings to begin.
