WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) - D'Adrien Lucas, 24, will be buried Monday in a cemetery behind New Beginning Holiness Church in Wetumpka. Lucas graduated from Wetumpka High School, played collegiate football, and joined the Marines.

Lucas was found dead on June 20 with a gunshot wound to the head at Camp Allen in Norfolk, Virginia. Lucas' mom Rhonda Lucas told WSFA 12 News she doesn't know whether her son took his own life or if this was a murder. She says she at peace regardless of what military investigators decide.

The young Marine would have turned 25 in September.
