Hector Macho Camacho funeral open casket photo
Hector "Macho" Camacho
's body is currently on display at a public viewing in Puerto Rico -- three days after the boxing legend's death.

The public viewing is being held at Centro de Recreacion in Santurce. A private mass was held yesterday for family and friends.

According to his rep, Hector's body will be flown to New York City for a private funeral and burial at his mother's request. It's unclear when the private funeral will be held.

As we reported, Camacho passed away on Saturday from injuries he sustained during a drive-by shooting last week.

Is that the bullet hole in his head???? Who would want an open casket with that showing, and furthur more, who would take a picture of that and put it on the internet??? Geesh, Harvey, have a little bit of class and decorum. And some compassion to the family.

Come on TMZ..Pictures of him in his coffin are totally wrong and show NO CLASS whatsoever. It's appaling.
Does anyone know if his organs were donated?

RIP..Hector..

Uh oh i am screwed    

Seriously? This picture should not be displayed like that. i can see having a link if someone wants to view it but to have it right there is in very poor taste. I check TMZ several times a day but will not be checking as long as this picture is up.
While it is acceptable to take pictures for some and in some cultures, many (like myself) are disturbed by images such as this. Please have respect not only for him/his family but for those of us who do not want to see images such as this.

This not respectful TMZ take this pic off your page. Let the man Rest in Peace. How would you like your family to click online to see this? Hello have some respect this is just wrong and you know it.

Not really what I wanted to see when I popped onto your site! Perhaps have a link if people WANT to see that sort of thing...or err on the side of taste and take it down.

It's really disrespectful of TMZ to post this photo; it's in very poor taste. I hope that you take it down soon and give Mr. Camacho some dignity in his death.

I don't understand the open casket viewing thing, I sure as hell don't want anyone staring at me when I'm dead. Creepy for sure

That's not a BULLET HOLE! That's the little curl Camacho always sported in his hair! Go look at any old clips of him! Rest In Peace Champ!
