Funeral Monday For Niles Boy Killed In Cass County Crash

The funeral for 12-year-old Adrian Chiquito will be Monday. The Niles boy was killed in a crash on New Year's Eve when a vehicle driven by his 14-year-old best friend, Brandon Burr, hit a tree in Cass County's Milton Township. The Cass County Sheriff's Department tells our newsroom Burr remains in stable but critical condition at Memorial Hospital in South Bend. The two were joyriding in Burr's grandfather's car, and their families didn't know they were gone until police showed up at the house. The families share a home in Niles. The boys were the only ones in the car, and were wearing their seat belts. The crash remains under investigation.

Visitation for Chiquito is Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Brown Funeral Home in Niles, with his funeral on Monday at 1 p.m. Donations can be made to the funeral home to help the family with the costs of the funeral and burial of the boy. You can also give online at
