Mom of UT student who dies after boxing: 'He is safe in the arms of Jesus'

The mother of a University of Tennessee student, who police said collapsed at Boxing Weekend and later died, said he is safe in the arms of Jesus.

In a post on its Twitter account, Backwoods Entertainment shared a cell phone video of rapper, Waka Flocka Flame, sending his condolences to University of Tennessee student, Tanner Wray, who police said died tragically after boxing Friday night.

Admirers took photos on their phones, fire trucks parked on freeway overpasses and police officers saluted as a motorcade carrying the body of the Rev. Billy Graham crossed the evangelist’s beloved home state of North Carolina for four hours Saturday from his mountain chapel to namesake library in the state’s largest city.

42-year-old Rebecca Brown was found safe Saturday afternoon after Knox County deputies said she had been missing since February 21.
