WORCESTER, Mass. – The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was entombed in an unknown gravesite Thursday after police said an anonymous person stepped forward to help arrange the secret burial.
The burial ended a weeklong search for a place willing to take Tsarnaev’s body out of Worcester, where his remains had been stored at a funeral home amid protests. In that time, the cities where Tsarnaev lived and died and his mother’s country all refused the remains.
Police in Worcester, about 50 miles west of Boston, didn’t say where the body was taken, only that it was no longer in the city.
Tsarnaev’s burial place is expected to become known with the release of his death certificate.
