After a controversial week, the body of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was laid to rest outside the city of Worcester.
The body of the 26-year-old was buried in an undisclosed location on Thursday after numerous churces refused to bury the man thought to be responsible for the death of three people. After his death, churches in the area where Tamerlan used to live refused to bury the suspect.
The controversy forced police in Worcester, Mass., to beg for individuals to come forward and offer a resting place for the suspect. A statement issued by the police said: “A courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased…His body is no longer in the City of Worcester and is now entombed.”
Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with the police on April 19, carried out a terrorist attack with his younger brother Dzokhar at the Boston Marathon. The two brothers of Chechen origin detonated two pressure cooker bombs close to the finish line that killed three and injured more than 200 people.
