Body Of Suspected Boston Marathon Bomber Buried In Virginia

Tsarnaev was thought to be buried in Massachusetts, but his body was instead transferred to central Virginia.
Tsarnaev was thought to be buried in Massachusetts, but his body was instead transferred to central Virginia.

The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev says his nephew has been buried in Virginia. 

Ruslan Tsarni said Friday that the body was buried with the help of a "faith coalition.'" He would not say where in Virginia the remains had been entombed. 

The burial this week ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester, Mass., as cemeteries refused to take the remains. 

Tsarnaev was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gunbattle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured later in the day and remains in custody.
