Albuquerque, New Mexico: Tombstone of Breaking Bad's Walter White

TV character Walter White's "funeral" on October 19, 2013, ended with a real Walter White headstone being placed at Sunset Memorial Park cemetery. But the relatives of real dead people complained, so the headstone was moved to a strip mall where its principal backer owned a business.

RIP Walter White.

Walter White's Tombstone

The tombstone was a little hard to find. It is in an obscure strip center on a road full of construction. It is on the wall instead of on the ground like most tombstones. Wonder what the story is for it being here. Strange place.

The tombstone was originally on the ground, but was moved into the wall to help preserve it. Since Walter White is a fictional character, there are no remains to disturb.

Tombstone of Breaking Bad's Walter White

This address is correct, but it is a poorly labeled small strip mall and not a Vernon's Steakhouse. The headstone is mounted on an outside wall near the back of the complex on the north side.
