About 90 mourners have paid their respects in Brooklyn to a young woman killed by police in Washington after she tried to ram her vehicle through a White House barrier.

Miriam Carey was dressed in white, and lay in a white, open casket Tuesday at a funeral chapel. A woman sobbed loudly as the casket was wheeled out for the trip to a Long Island cemetery.

The dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn., is survived by her 1-year-old daughter, who was in the vehicle during the Oct. 3 car chase through the streets of Washington.

Carey had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and psychosis. Authorities say she believed President Barack Obama was monitoring her electronically.
