WORCESTER, Mass. (WWLP) - A Massachusetts funeral home director is scrambling to find a cemetery that will bury a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Worcester funeral home owner Peter Stefan has 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body.
He says protesters have gathered outside his business, upset with his decision to handle the funeral.
Stefan says everybody deserves a dignified burial service, no matter the circumstances of his or her death.
22News asked people what they think.
"I agree. I don't think he should be buried here just on account of what he did on our soil. So why should he be buried in it? He should be sent back home and buried there," Tony Andruss of West Springfield said.
Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with police four days after the bombing.
He ran out of ammunition before his brother dragged his body under a vehicle while trying to escape.
Tsarnaev's death certificate says he died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso.
