Protesters are voicing their concerns outside a North Attleboro, Massachusetts funeral home after the body of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev arrived for burial.
“They shouldn’t even have him there. Send him back to Russia. Let them do all they want over there with him, but not here. This is a disgrace.” said protester Tony Hannon.
Funeral Director Peter Stefan said he understands the concern, but Tsarnaev has to be buried.
“In this country, we bury the dead. I mentioned many times, we buried the Oswalds, the McVeighs, the Dahmers, and the Bundy’s. This is no different.” said Stefan.
Finding a cemetery to do the burial is also proving difficult. Stefan said after a second autopsy is performed, he will ask the government to find a grave.
Stefan also confirmed that Tsarnaev’s official cause of death is listed as gunshot wounds to the torso and extremities and blunt force trauma to the head and torso.
