Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, killed in shootout with police days after the blast, has been buried at an undisclosed location, police in Worcester, Mass., said Thursday.
"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," Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst said.
Hazelhurst said the body was no longer in Worcester. Reading a statement, he thanked "all of the officers who worked the security detail at the funeral home and acknowledge their professionalism and dedication."
Tsarnaev's body had been at the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors for a week. Funeral home director Peter Stefan and Tsarnaev's uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, had been looking for a gravesite.
