While they take on that emotional task other questions linger as to what exactly happened that night and why they weren't able to see his body.
KARK spoke to the family and they tell us that Little Rock Police never contacted them when their son died in police custody. And no one has told them what happened.
They had to get news of their son's death from someone else. The family received a call from Davis's landlord on Sunday night.
He told the family to get over to Booker Jr.'s house quickly. "When we arrived there was police cars and crime scene tape all over the place."
Little Rock Police got a call to the 1400 block of South Izard Street, where officers say a man was acting erratically and taking his clothes off.
The family says an eyewitness gave them a different account.
"Someone told us that the police beat him and they had gone inside his apartment. And when they went in he was okay, when he came out he was on a stretcher."
Booker's dad says that is strange to him. " I don't know why they would take him inside his apartment if he was naked in the streets. My assumption is no matter how they arrive they put you in a police car."
Booker was transported to UAMS where his mom and dad say they were denied access to him even after he was pronounced dead.
"The doctor was acting real weird, he didn't know anything and i said well was he handcuffed, yes, was he bruised? He said i don't know. Well if you examined him, why don't you know?"
They left UAMS and called the coroner in hopes they could see their son.
"They said they did not have viewing facilities."
Davis says he thought whenever someone died the family would be notified to come and identify the body.
"So we assumed we would see our son cause as far as we know, technically speaking we don't know whether he is dead or not because we haven't seen him."
Sgt. Cassandra Davis of LRPD says "in this incident someone identified Mr. Davis, and once it becomes an investigation the family members unfortunately are not allowed to come in and view the body."
It's been four days and they still haven't seen Booker's body or know exactly how he died. His mother says an officer told her Booker may have died from a drug overdose.
"I said an overdose of what and he said he didn't know, why would you say that and don't have anything to back it up. He shouldn't have said that , i'm his mom."
A mother and father planning their son's funeral with still a lot of unanswered questions.
"I just don't understand how all blacks die in police custody and that's just it."
Sgt. Cassandra Davis did tell KARK that Booker was maced and there was a struggle.
She also says this investigation is still ongoing.
