Worcester police have announced that Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body was “entombed,” ending confusion about how to lay Tsarnaev to rest, as his body remained unburied for three weeks amid mixed public reaction.
Through help from a “courageous and compassionate individual,” it was possible to properly bury Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with officers on April 19, local police said in a statement. Authorities connected the unnamed individual to their “public appeal for help,”they said.
“His body is no longer in the city of Worcester and is now entombed,” the statement said, without specifying where Tsarnaev had been buried.
Many US cemeteries had refused to accept the bombing suspect’s remains over fears of bad publicity.
