Uncle: Marathon Bombing Suspect Buried in Virginia

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev  says his nephew has been buried in Virginia.

Ruslan Tsarni said Friday that the body was buried in a cemetery in Doswell, Va., near Richmond, with the help of a "faith coalition."

The burial this week ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester, Mass., as cemeteries refused to take the remains.

Tsarni says he is relieved by the resolution, saying, a "corpse must be in the soil."

Tsarnaev was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gunbattle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar was captured later in the day and remains in custody.
