Hundreds of Strangers Gather to Honor a Vietnam War Veteran Who Died Alone: 'He Had No One'

Hundreds of strangers gathered on Friday to honor a veteran who died alone.

Nearly 1,000 people showed up at the Brigadier Gen. William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in North Hanover, New Jersey, to pay their respects to Peter Turnpu, according to USA Today.

On Dec. 9, Turnpu was found unresponsive inside his home in Atco by a neighbor, who frequently checked on him, the outlet reported.

The Army veteran died of natural causes, New Jersey Herald reported. He was 77.

Turnpu had no known relatives and for the most part, kept to himself.

Touched by his story, police officer LeRoy Wooster took it upon himself to plan Turnpu’s funeral.

“It was the right thing to do. I didn’t want him to be buried alone,” Wooster told New Jersey Herald.

Wooster, who is also owner of LeRoy Wooster Funeral Home in Atco, arranged for Turnpu to buried with military honors, USA Today reported.

Robert Mueller Issues Rare Denial, Disputes Report Claiming Trump Told Michael Cohen to Lie

Robert Mueller Issues Rare Denial, Disputes Report Claiming Trump Told Michael Cohen to Lie

Robert Mueller is responding to claims about his investigation for the first time.

After BuzzFeed published an article on Thursday claiming authorities have proof President Donald Trump directed his personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — an obstruction of justice and an impeachable offense, if true — Mueller’s team hit back.

In a very rare statement, which was issued on Friday, the special counsel investigating the alleged conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian officials challenged the story’s accuracy.

According to BuzzFeed reporters Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold, Trump, 72, allegedly told his then-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” his spokesman, Peter Carr, told PEOPLE in a statement.

In response, BuzzFeed said in its own statement, “We are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report.”

Following Mueller’s team released the statement, Trump responded on social media.

“Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited ‘Dossier,’ paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based!” he wrote in a tweet.

“A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!” Trump added.

Donald Trump Jr. also responded on Twitter, laughing at the backlash Buzzfeed had received after issuing the report.

90 Day Fiancé's Larissa Dos Santos Lima Charged with Domestic Battery After Fight with Colt Johnson

90 Day Fiancé's Larissa Dos Santos Lima Charged with Domestic Battery After Fight with Colt Johnson

One week after 90 Day Fiancé couple Larissa Dos Santos Lima and Colt Johnson got into an explosive argument that led to facial injuries for both, Dos Santos Lima has reportedly been indicted.

The 32-year-old reality star was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery on Wednesday, according to a criminal complaint obtained by TMZ.

The document, which was filed in Las Vegas, stated that Dos Santos Lima “did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse.”

Representatives at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Last Friday, Dos Santos Lima and Johnson allegedly got into an extremely violent argument. Dos Santos Lima shared several photos and videos on Instagram, revealing a bloodied face and claiming Johnson called the cops on her as the two were arguing.

“I just scratched him because he was hurting me,” she said in one video.

In the frantic videos, Dos Santos Lima said she was afraid of getting deported because Johnson called the police first. She also begged for help finding an attorney.

PEOPLE reached out to TLC and Dos Santos Lima for comment; Johnson was unable to be reached.

Shortly after their physical altercation went public, Dos Santos Lima made a tearful video as she claimed that GoFundMe shut down her campaign to raise money for her legal and bail fees.

In the video, recorded on Instagram Live, the reality star said that she needs to hire three attorneys for three different legal cases: a criminal attorney for an ongoing domestic battery case, an attorney for her divorce from Johnson and an immigration lawyer.

“I’m not happy about it, I’m not proud about it, but it’s something that I need your help with now,” Dos Santos Lima told her followers, tearing up.

The TLC star later thanked her followers for their donations and announced she would not be receiving the money. Instead, Dos Santos Lima shared her Venmo and Zelle usernames and explained that the GoFundMe donors would receive a refund.

It is not clear why her fundraiser would have been
