Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Reportedly Buried in Virginia

The remains of Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been buried in a Muslim cemetery in a small town.

The body of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers have been buried in a Muslim cemetery in a small town in Virginia. 

The Boston Globe reported Friday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried in a cemetery in Doswell, Va., a small town about 15 miles from Richmond, Va.

The report cites two sources who have been "briefed on the situation" who said that the body was buried at Al-Barzakh Cemetery.

What to do with the body of one of the two Boston Marathon Bombing suspects had become a controversy, as people protested outside a Worcester funeral home where the body was being kept. Officials had not been able to find a cemetery in Massachusetts that would accept the body.

Tamerlan died on April 19 after a gun battle with police in Watertown, when he allegedly was run over by his brother Dzhokhar, the second bombing suspect, as he fled the scene of the shootout in East Watertown.

Dzhokhar faces charges of setting off the two bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line. The Tsarnaev brothers are also suspected of shooting and killing MIT Police Officer Sean Collier.

This pig is a muslim terrorist. From now on I'd hope the newspapers would use the photo of him dead, lying on the table. That's how I choose to remember him.
