SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - A private funeral service has been held in suburban Detroit for a 41-year-old Iraqi man who died in Baghdad after being deported from the U.S. for committing crimes.
The Detroit News reports that Jimmy Aldaoud was buried Friday at the gravesite of his parents at Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery in Southfield.
Aldaoud came to the U.S. as an infant and lived in the Detroit area. He was deported in June. His body was returned to Michigan late last month.
