TAMPA, Fla. -

The body of one of the three soldiers killed in the rampage at Fort Hood will be returning to the Tampa Bay area.
The remains of Army Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Ferguson will arrive at the Tampa International Airport Friday evening. Ferguson attended high school in Polk County.

The Patriot Guard Riders motorcycle organization will conduct an honor escort from Tampa International Airport to a funeral home in Lakeland.
The Tampa Tribune reports that there will be a private funeral Saturday morning in Lakeland. The riders will then escort Ferguson to the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.
Officials say Ferguson was one of three killed April 2 by Army Spc. Ivan Lopez at the Texas Army base.
