After the body was discovered and the family released a statement, neighbors began to honor the late child with a beautiful tribute on his street.

Well now it's sadly time for the Graves family to pay their respects to their son as they recently announced Lane will be buried on Tuesday. The service will be held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Elkhorn, Nebraska with both a rosary prayer service and wake being held prior on Sunday night and Monday respectively.

Seeing as how this was such a high profile case, there will be no cameras, cell phones, or other recording devices at the funeral "out of respect for the family."

2-Year-Old Found Dead After Being Snatched By Alligator At Disney World Resort

What a terrible end to an already tragic situation.

As you've probably heard, a 2-year-old boy was grabbed by an alligator while walking along a lagoon at Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately, it's with a heavy heart that we must report that Florida officials have reportedly found Lane Graves' body about 18 hours he was first pulled under water.

According to Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, a dive team first noticed remains of what they expected to be the Nebraska boy's body underwater at around 1:45 p.m. EST on Wednesday, but it wasn't until 3:30 p.m. EST that the body was finally pulled out of the lake.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Executive Director Nick Wiley said in a press conference that they have already tracked down five alligators, and will compare bite marks to see which animal killed the child.

Disney does have "No Swimming" signs posted along the beach, but we don't think many tourists would expect a vacation destination to have gators freely swimming around their waters.

Our thoughts are with Lane's family at this unimaginably difficult time.
