Boston Marathon: Cambridge refuses to bury suspect's body

Boston Marathon: Cambridge refuses to bury suspect's body, According to an article published by Boston.com on May 5, officials from Cambridge, Massachusetts released a statement urging the family of 26-year-old, Tamerlan Tsarnaev not to apply to have him buried in Cambridge.

The director of the funereal home where Tsarnaev's remains are being prepare for burial, Peter Stefan recently released a statement claiming that he couldn't find anyone in Massachusetts willing to bury the accused terrorist body, and that he planned to officially ask the city of Cambridge, where the suspected live with his wife and young child for a place to bury the body.

Stefan's statement prompted Cambridge City Manager Robert W. Healy to release his own statement about burying the suspected killer in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“The difficult and stressful efforts of the residents of the city of Cambridge to return to a peaceful life would be adversely impacted by the turmoil, protests, and widespread media presence at such an interment,” Healy reportedly said in his statement according to Boston.com.

The message here is clear; Boston and other cities in Massachusetts do not want to bury a suspected terrorist in their backyards, so to speak.

Stefan recently told reporters that people from other states have stepped up by agreeing to bury the remains in their state, but that he wanted to ask Cambridge before deciding to look outside the state.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his 19-year-old brother, 19-year-old, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are believed to be responsible for the April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon. The attack killed three people including a 8-year-old little boy, and injured more that 200 others.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died on April 19 from injuries he received in a shootout with law enforcement officers on April 18. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was also injured, but he survived to face charges of using a weapon of mass destruction, and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death.
