But today FoxBoston.com reports that Tamerlan’s body has been moved from the city of Worcester, Massachusetts, and buried in an undisclosed location.
Under cover of darkness, a hearse whisked away the bomber’s body at 3 a.m. this morning from the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlor, which has been under armed guard as Tamerlan’s family desperately searched for willing cemetery.
Worcester police Sergeant Kerry Hazelhurst said:
A courageous and compassionate person came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased.
The name of this “compassionate person” was not disclosed.
Earlier this week, a retired Vermont teacher offered up a spot in his family’s plot at the Mount Carmel Burying Ground in Hamden, Connecticut — but there was little chance the offer would be accepted by Tamerlan’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, who was seeking a rural location isolated from vandals.
The Boston Globe reported today that the resting place is “somewhere outside of Massachusetts.”
