The body of Hector "Macho" Camacho was loaded onto an airplane in Puerto Rico today -- a plane bound for the United States, where a private funeral is scheduled to be held this week.

As we reported, Camacho's mother had requested a private funeral to be held in New York City, where he will also be buried.

An open casket public viewing was held on Tuesday in PR. A private mass was held earlier this week.

First of all, it was not a drive by shooting. He and a friend (who has had various drug related arrests) where sitting in a parking lot in a spot they'd just driven to & hung out at. Whoever shot them meant to shoot one or both of them. They'd been friends since kids. And, check your history, Puerto Rico is part of the USA. BTW, his whole family is frazy!

**** TMZ and the staff...I saw your segment on the funeral that featured mike tyson, you ******* should be ashamed of yourselves for talking about the viewing like if it was some kind joke to you. Yeah it's all fun and games until one of your staff members dies and the funeral is discussed in another bull**** gossip show making fun of that as well....eat **** and die *******s

TMZ REALLY screwed up with their opinions/ridiculizing what went on at the viewing. As tmz killer states: you should be ashamed of yourselves, IMO a publuc appology on behalf of your staff us the LEAST you can do... Puertorricans may be different, a tad more emotional when expressing their feelings and YES, if the deceased is a loved one may go so far ad to kissing the body: that is his/her way of saying 'see you later'... By the way you people think about puertorricans is a display of total ignorance: we were a colony from s Spain given to US in 1898 after the hispano-american war, we became CITIZENS of the US through the Foraker Act, and a Commonwealth of US since I can't remember when. Our men/women have served in the Armed Forces defending the idea of DEMOCRACY and FREEDOM without hesitation, and the vast majority of puertorricans are FULLY BILINGUAL, if you didn't know.. Next time you decide to ridicule something get the facts straight, look into that culture BEFORE accting as a******s yourselves. Did you guys ridicule the events of what went in during Whitney Houstons funeral? I didn't read anything about it on your site.... Before I finish, just to let you know: just because HISPANICS soeak spanish it does NOT makes us all Mexicans (nothing against them). You people REALLY punched
