Worcester man wants to send Tsarnaev body to Russia

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts community activist plans to start a campaign to raise money to send the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev to Russia for burial.

Tsarnaev's body is at a Worcester funeral home, but funeral director Peter Stefan says he hasn't found a cemetery in Massachusetts willing to accept the remains.

Cambridge, where the Tsarnaev family lived, says it does not want the body.

William Breault of Worcester is setting up a fund to send the body back home. Breault says it costs from $3,000 to $7,000 to ship a body to Russia, where Tsarnaev's parents live. He says he will kick start the campaign with a $500 donation.

But Stefan, the funeral director, says he doesn't think Russia will take the body. He says he's looking outside of Massachusetts.
