Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two suspects in the April 15 Boston Marathon terror attack, has been buried in a Muslim cemetery in Doswell, Virginia, near Richmond, a source close to the investigation told CNN today.
The body went unclaimed for nearly two weeks after Tsarnaev was killed April 19 following a police chase. His uncle claimed the body but had trouble finding a cemetery that would bury Tsarnaev.
On Thursday, police said the remains had been entombed thanks to a "courageous and compassionate individual." The police did not give a location for the grave.
