The body of Jose Munoz was driven to the airport so he could return to his home in Mexico.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The body of a man shot and killed inside the Outer Loop Olive Garden was transported to the airport.

A family representative set up a GoFundMe in honor of Jose Munoz to raise enough money to fly his body home.

The online campaign raised more than $3,500.

Munoz’s family says the killing was a hate crime although the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office has not made a determination on whether that is true.
