Criminal funerals.

I have a character, who is a recently escaped convict, that ended up getting killed. The story takes place in modern day United States, and I've done a few searches on both Google and Wikipedia about funerals and criminal funerals, with varying keywords. The closest thing I've discovered was on Wikipedia about private funerals, but that just dealt with criminals that have served their full term in prison. And Google just gave me links to news articles that didn't even relate to what I was looking for. What I was wondering was this: If an escaped criminal were to die, would the family be able to give him or her a regular funeral?

Thank you everyone for your comments!
