The funeral for the sibling of one of Kinston's most famous residents is set for Thursday.
Kevin Long, who went by the name Mia Henderson, was found slain in an alley on the northwest side of Baltimore on July 16.
Long is the sibling of Reggie Bullock of the L.A. Clippers and formally the UNC basketball team.
The service starts 2 p.m. Thursday at the United FWB Tabernacle in Kinston.
Reggie Bullock of the Los Angeles Clippers confirms to WJZ-TV that Mia Henderson, who was born Kevin Long, was his brother. Bullock also sent a tweet on Wednesday paying tribute to Henderson, with the hashtag "RIPKEVIN."
Baltimore police say the 26-year-old Henderson was found dead early Wednesday morning in an alley in northwest Baltimore. Police have not identified any suspects or established a motive, and they don't know yet whether there's any connection to the slaying of another transgender woman last month.
Bullock is heading into his second season with the Clippers. He was a first-round draft pick last year out of the University of North Carolina.
