LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After 76 years, a U.S. sailor's remains are finally returning home to Louisville for burial.

Samuel Crowder was declared dead in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, but his remains were just identified a few months ago.

WDRB first shared the story about his family's search for answers in October

His funeral service will be held Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
