    Police: Dead Boston bombing suspect buried

    BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried in an undisclosed location outside the city of Worcester, police said Thursday after a frustrating weeklong search for a community willing to take the body.

    "As a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased," Worcester police said in a statement.

    Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst said the body was no longer in Worcester and is now entombed. Police did not specify where the body was taken.

    Outside Worcester???????? By how many miles?

    Va. woman has no regrets over role in burial

    DOSWELL, Va. (AP) — The Virginia woman whose actions led to Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev being buried about 30 miles north of her Richmond home said the angry backlash from local officials, some cemetery neighbors and online critics has been unpleasant, but she has no regrets.

    "I can't pretend it's not difficult to be reviled and maligned," Martha Mullen told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday. "But any time you can reach across the divide and work with people that are not like you, that's what God calls us to do."

    I may be older than many of you. But I do remember the outrage when an American Marine's dead body was dragged through the crowd in Tehrain. Those folks felt tye same way some of you feel about the Boston Bomber. Yet, as a civilized society, we in the west, bury the dead. In American history their is no end of nasty folks. You bury them. It is not a subject for debate. I am always hearing about this huge population of Christians in America. How come everytime an issue comes up where Christianity would resolve it, the country turns Atheist.

    What exactly, is wrong with a very simple and unceremonious burial at sea in this case?

    A dead service member and a terrorist are not the same thing.So you fail.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Re: Hard to find grave for alleged Boston bomber

    So your all for dragging dead bodies through the streets - as long as its the bad guys. The point is that in America you have a long tradition of burying the dead. It is considered the Christian thing to do. Now you want to decide which bodies gets buried and which ones do not. For the life of your Country you have had people on death-row. Some are there for outragous crimes. Yet after they are killed they are buried. You have just experienced recent mass murders where the perpetrator ended up dead. You buried the body.

    Why are so many Americans, so quick to drop the principles the Country was founded on, when the word 'terrorist' enters the picture.

    I think it would have been OK, but why do that to the fish?

    This is a story for about 2 seconds. Unless someone is planning to put up a monument to Tsarnaev at the site of his grave, what's the big deal. What do you think happens when someone like Jeffrey Dahmer dies or any number of other mass murders when they die? The only reason this is a story is because the funeral home director made it a story - this should have been handled behind the scenes and the body quietly buried where it would never be discovered again.

    I will admit that another poster got me to thinking that his family deserves respect; and, for that reason, I've re-thought my stance. Still, this is a family problem; not the funeral director's. I'd bet, as that poster said, there's a Potter's Field cemetery in Boston.

    Bury him there.
    The person that committed the acts is dead and gone.While I don't believe in god or follow any faith what so ever I do believe that when someone dies there is nothing left to feel resentment towards. I realize people don't agree with me, but I don't understand how they can hold onto their hate and further desire to act towards the body of the individual in the way they do.

    So post mortem, his body is no different than the 8-year-old boy he killed?
    Yes, exactly.

    We bury our dead. We do not use our fellow human beings as fish food.
