Daunte Wright’s parents give emotional tribute at funeral

Daunte Wright’s parents Katie and Aubrey have remembered their son as a lovable, joyous young man in a moving eulogy on Thursday.

“My son had a smile that was worth a million dollars,” Katie Wright said, adding, “The joy that Junior brought to Daunte’s life was truly amazing. He was so happy and so proud, and he always said he couldn’t wait to make his son proud.”

Mr Wright was killed by police towards the end of the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who murdered George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, during an arrest last May.
