Family members of the late dancehall star Merciless disclosed that an autopsy will be performed on the deejay's body this week.
"It will be this week…definitely one day this week," Merciless' older sister, Claire Howell, told OBSERVER ONLINE. "We're waiting for it to get done so that the family members can fly in for the funeral."
Merciless' 85 year-old mother, Etle Ruby Bartley, is expected to attend the funeral.
Since his passing, two nine-nights have been held to celebrate his life, one at Dozer's headquarters in the Corporate Area and one at his house in May Pen.
In addition to his mother, Merciless is survived by three sisters and three brothers. One sister and one brother are not a part of the traditional family unit.
The late deejay, born Leonard Bartley, was found dead in a guest house on Walker's Avenue, off Beechwood Avenue, in Kingston on July 19. It is understood that the entertainer checked into the facility alone.
