NEW YORK (AP) — A New Yorker killed while vacationing alone in Turkey is being remembered as a good-hearted and joyful person.
A funeral was held Friday on Staten Island for Sarai (suh-RY') Sierra, a mother of two.
The service began with a prayer and "Amazing Grace" played by pipers from the transit system. Sierra's husband is a bus driver.
Her body was found in Istanbul on Feb. 2, 12 days after she disappeared. Police say she suffered a fatal blow to the head.
The 33-year-old went to Turkey to explore her hobby, photography. A friend who was supposed to join her canceled for financial reasons.
Turkish authorities and the FBI are investigating her death. Turkey's state-run agency says police have briefly detained the two brothers and a sister of a man wanted for questioning in Sierra's death.
