Family of Deceased Veteran Receives Some Help, Still Short

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Kathy Bursby said her son, an Iraq war veteran named Philip Cody Bursby, died in a car accident over the weekend in California. Since coming to 3News for help, many have offered their assistance.

The family needed financial help to get their love one's body back home. They have received help, but are still short.

"We received some calls from there in Corpus Christi," said Tina Wright, Cody's aunt. "Two of them are parents that went to school with Cody. One of them went to school, they remember Cody. She wanted to give us a donation to help out."

Cody's mother plans on cremating her son in California because she says she can't afford the cost of bringing her son back home.
