BOSTON (CBS) The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev is now at a funeral home in Worcester.
Peter Stefan, owner of Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors, told WBZ-TV Friday he is handling funeral arrangements for the Tsarnaev family.
Stefan said his staff has experience with Muslim services, which includes washing the body and preparing it for burial.
A police cruiser parked outside the Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlor Friday. We take care of a lot of Muslim funerals here, throughout the state, Stefan said, and this was no different, except for the circumstances.
A burial site has not yet been located and its not clear yet when a service will be held.
Normally, with Muslims its usually done sometimes as the same day, but no later than the following day, but we dont have that option with this, he said.
WBZs Beth Germano has confirmed that two cemeteries, one in West Roxbury, and one in Enfield, Connecticut, have turned down requests to having Tsarnaev buried there. Cemeteries in New Jersey have also said no.
Stefans funeral home will have paid police details outside throughout the weekend.
He told WBZ he is prepared for protests.
Youre always going to get a certain amount of people that are probably going to complain about what you do, he said.
I go back to the time when Lee Harvey Oswald died, somebody buried him. Timothy McVeigh, somebody handled that. Jeffery Dahmer, somebody handled that. Ted Bundy, somebody handled that. I mean, we bury the dead. Can I control what the circumstances are around their death? No. Can I pick and choose? No.
Would you criticize the medical people who saved the life of the other guy? (Tsarnaevs brother Dzhokhar)
Several protesters showed up outside a funeral home in North Attleboro Thursday night when Tsarnaevs body was taken there after it was released by the state medical examiner to the family.
Stefan said that was because of a mixup and that the body should have been brought directly to his business.
The official caused of Tsarnaevs death has not been released yet, but WBZ has confirmed his death certificate only says pending at this point in the case.

Would I criticize the people who stabilized Dzhokhar? Not until I found out we wouldn’t interrogate him.
Isn’t there a good pig trough somewhere?
I wonder if Obama will crash this funeral like demoncraps usually do.
Please tell me that’s a photo shop spoof.
Can I have some of your liver?
Are there no dumpsters in Massachusetts?
Here you is:
Odd, I had a moose there once.
I know dozens of Illinois hog farmers who would be glad to dispose of him.
It’s not—it was on the news.
I completely sympathize with the cemeteries. Why invite a chronic vandalism magnet?
Give him to Pelosi. She can have him stuffed and put in her office.
Put his disgusting corpse on the Pellicano
land fills stink, a little more stink from this muslim trash won’t matter.
Ship it back to Russia. Let his mother deal with it.
