Body Of Tamerlan Tsarnaev Buried In Undisclosed Location

It was announced this morning that the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried after and extended period during which it was unclear where it would end up:

WORCESTER – The body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried somewhere outside of Massachusetts, according to a funeral home official briefed on the situation.

The official said that the remains of the suspected Boston Marathon bomber were removed sometime before midnight Wednesday from the Graham Putnam & ­Mahoney Funeral Parlors where his body has been since last Friday.

The burial location was approved by Ruslan Tsarni, the suspected terrorist’s uncle who has represented the family as he and funeral home director Peter Stefan tried to find a cemetery willing to accept the remains for burial.

In a statement, Worcester police also confirmed that Tsarnaev has been buried, but did not disclose the location except to say it was outside of the city of Worcester.

This seems to be the best way to end this situation.

    Yet another reason why cremation is a better way to go.

    There are problems with cremating terrorists too.

    On November 21, 1997, President Bill Clinton had signed S. 923, special legislation introduced by Senator Arlen Specter to bar McVeigh and other veterans convicted of capital crimes from being buried in any military cemetery. His body was cremated at Mattox Ryan Funeral Home in Terre Haute, Indiana. The cremated remains were given to his lawyer, who scattered them at an undisclosed location. McVeigh had earlier written that he considered having his ashes dropped at the site of the memorial where the Murrah building once stood, but decided that would be “too vengeful, too raw, too cold.”

    Stop on by and piss on his grave (but not the cats).
    It’s cathartic.

    I like that over 100 people offered to take the body and bury it. Talk about selling tickets to piss on his grave.

    I’m glad he’s been buried. He was no worse than Timothy McVeigh in fact McVeigh was far worse!! McVeigh was cremated and now this guy is buried. Two evil folks off the face of the earth.

  11. What a travesty this whole thing was. As a culture, we need to reacquaint ourselves with basic human decency and stop posing for the benefit our of Facebook friends.

    Yes, hate the guy. But man, we’re not going to function as a society if we can’t even bury our villains.
