Boston bomber’s mother looking to send the body back to Russia
An employee at the funeral home trying to find a burial site for the body of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev tells Fox News that his mother has expressed interest in sending it back to Russia, as cemeteries are refusing to accept the remains.
Joseph Gliniecki, of Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors, said Monday that the funeral home is “exploring that as an option” and would have to file necessary paperwork with the Russian Embassy in the U.S.
He said the decision on the body will be up to the family, but added that the mother would like to send it back to Russia for burial “if at all possible.”
“Everyone wants him sent back to Russia,” said Peter Stefan, the director of the home, according to NBC News.
