At last, the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried.
Police confirmed the burial saying an unidentified person stepped up and helped arrange a secret burial for the deceased. The burial site is also anonymous.
Tsarnev’s burial had been dragging after a failure for his family to find willing people to offer their land and services to bury him. His remains had been stored at a funeral home in Worcester. All cities where he had lived or had any relation to refused his body from being buried there.
Worcester’s police chief had then urged an end to the quandary. “We are not barbarians,” he said. “We bury the dead.” Yesterday, police announced that he had at last been buried. “As a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased.” They added that the body was no longer in Worcester however.
The director of Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors, Peter Stefan, also refused to say where the body was buried or to speak to media gathered outside the funeral home.
Tsarnaev and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were accused of being behind the twin bomb explosions which were set off during Boston Marathon at the finish line killing three and injuring many more on April 15. 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev got involved in a police fire fight and he ended up being killed. He left behind a wife and daughter, Zahara.
