The family of suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev is trying to figure out where to bury him. Funeral Director Peter Stefan says several cemeteries in the area have refused to accept the body. Still, he says regardless of people's emotions, Tsarnaev's body must be buried somewhere.

"At this point, any outcome would be better than nothing. We do have to bury the person, regardless of what he did, as I said earlier, in this country, we bury the dead. Funeral directors have done this for years, they continue to do it. There aren't too many options. When there is no problem, it's very easy with the cemetery. This is a big problem, but somebody has to step in and say, 'Look, we're going to have to do something here,' and we have to. I've gone as far as I can go with this," said Peter Stefan, Funeral Dir. for Tsarnaev Family.

Meanwhile, Cambridge City Manager Robert W. Healy said he would not allow Tsarnaev to be buried in the city. Stefan has said if he can't find a grave site, he will ask the government to find one.

This terrorists family has a lot of nerve trying to bury this punk on U.S. Soil. They should ship his body to Cheztnia & have him buried there. Isn't that why he bombed us because in his warped mind he was concerned about Russia but was too much of a coward to do his dirty deed there? Normally I would say let the family burry the guy in peace but Mom and Dad keep saying we are framing him & his equally cowardly brother who ran over his own brother to get away.
