Marathon Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Funeral Being Handled In Worcester

grahamputnamandmahoneyfuneralparlors.com

Years prior to the Boston marathon bombings, Tamerlan Tsarnaev called Massachusetts his home. Now, his widow is arranging to have his funeral in Worcester, MA. 

According to ABC 6 the funeral arrangements are being made Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlor in Worcester, and his body was moved overnight from a funeral parlor in Attleboro.

The funeral home in Worcester has experience doing Muslim services. It was learned earlier that Tsarnaev’s body was claimed, but his family in Maryland wanted nothing to do with it. His Uncle and widow are reportedly the ones making the funeral arrangements.

Peter Stefan, the owner of Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors of Worcester, says he’s prepared for protests.

WBZ reports that while the body is being prepared in Worcester, no set date for the actual funeral is set as of yet. According to several sources, cemeteries in three separate states including Massachusetts have denied the request to be buried.
