The British sister of a veteran of the US Army who was found dead in a car in California said his murderers deserve to rot in the sewers of hell.
Adrian Bonar's body, 34, was discovered wrapped in tarpaulin in the trunk of an abandoned Lexus that Anaheim police officers were about to drag.
Bonar, son of Scottish restaurant millionaire Brian Bonar, had served in Iraq and mystery surrounds his death about 120 kilometers from the city of Escondido where he lived.
The stars and stripes were draped over his coffin during a celebration of his life on Friday with a murder probe above the ceremony.

The victim's sister, Pauline Gourdie, wrote in a tribute online that Adrian Bonar's life was shortened by & # 39; malicious scum & # 39 ;.
& # 39; My heart is breaking, but full of pride that you were my brother. It is clear that you were loved not only by your family, but by so many whose lives you touched, & she said.
& # 39; You were taken away too early but you lived from it. So proud of everything you've achieved in your life, curtailed by malignant scum.
& # 39; May you ascend with the eagles in heaven while they squawk in the sewers of hell! Until we meet again. Sleep softly lil bro. Your heartbroken sister, P. & # 39;
The 34-year-old, who lived in Escondido about 120 miles from where he was found dead, had served in the US Army in Iraq.
According to reports in Scotland, Bonar & # 39; s mother Linda Green traveled to the US for a celebration of her son's life last week.

The mourners were shown a photo of Bonar in full Highland dress and wore thistles as a tribute to his Scottish background.
A framed montage that was shown during the event showed a series of photos of Bonar in military equipment.
Moreover, the Stars and Stripes were draped over his coffin in recognition of his military service.
A friend of DailyMail.com said last week that he & # 39; had no idea & # 39; who would harm Bonar.
& # 39; He was just a great guy. Someone you wanted to be with, & # 39; Gustavo Dias told DailyMail.com.
Dias, 32, who lives in Florida, said Bonar was married to children and said he had served him in Iraq in 2007 and 2008. Both were honorably fired.
& # 39; He was an outstanding soldier, & # 39; said Dias from Bonar. & # 39; I have so many that he is stupid in Iraq and everyone is trying to make them laugh. & # 39;

The map above shows that Bonar & # 39; s body was found about 120 miles from where he lives in Esconido, California.
A grief-stricken Dias had posted on his Facebook page about the loss of his fellow veteran.
& # 39; Today I received the news that I lost one of my comrades to a pointless murder & # 39 ;, he wrote on Saturday.
# He survived Iraq, but not the people he swore to protect. Rest in peace & # 39 ;.
Kim Shaffer, who also posted on Facebook about Bonar & # 39; s death, said his body was found at the end of a street where her church is located, & # 39; where the illuminated cross on the hill is along the 91 highway is & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Many of us are sad about the family, & # 39; Shaffer wrote. & # 39; If anyone knows how we can serve them at the Kindred Community Church, please contact me and let me know. & # 39;
The Anaheim police said Bonar & # 39; was known to frequent motels in North San Diego County and Los Angeles County & # 39; because they asked for information.
Investigators said they were a & # 39; suspicious object & # 39; had found themselves wrapped in a sail after being called to the abandoned vehicle 12 days ago.
The object turned out to be & # 39; a similar size and shape of a human body & # 39; and the vehicle was towed to the coroner's office for examination.
The police later revealed the identity of Bonar and urged everyone who had seen him in the weeks before his death or had contact to call (+1) 714 321 3669.
