Anton Yelchin once again stood among loved ones at his burial site this weekend and will remain that way thanks to his family … TMZ has learned.
A bronze statue of Anton was unveiled Sunday above his grave at Hollywood Forever — where the deceased actor was laid to rest after his tragic death more than a year ago.
Sources close to the service tell TMZ … his family wanted their only son to have a ground monument, which is why he was moved from Mount Sinai Cemetery to Hollywood Forever shortly after he died. Mount Sinai does not allow ground monuments.
We broke the story … Anton was crushed to death by his car after it rolled back and pinned him against a brick mailbox pillar at his home. His parents have been in a legal battle with Fiat Chrysler ever since, claiming their product caused his death.
Eyewitnesses tell us a few celebs came out to pay their respects to Anton during Sunday’s service — including Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, Demi Moore and Simon Pegg.
Anton would have been 28 this year. RIP
