A Massachusetts police chief begged Wednesday for help in finding a burial place for Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, saying that guarding the funeral home where his body is being held is a drain on town resources.
“There is a need to do the right thing," Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme said. "We are not barbarians. We bury the dead.”
Tsarnaev, 26, has been dead for almost three weeks. Funeral director Peter Stefan accepted his remains and prepared themin accordance with Muslim tradition but no one has agreed to bury them.
Ibragim Todashev, who died during the interview with authorities, not only confessed to his direct role in slashing the throats of three people in Waltham, Massachusetts, but also fingered Tsarnaev in the deaths, the official said Wednesday. source
