Funeral director: Bomberís mom wants body buried in Russia
Boston Herald ^ | 5/6/13 | Laurel Sweet

WORCESTER — The distraught mother of Boston Marathon bombing mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev wants his body sent home to Russia, the funeral director caring for the remains said today.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva called Peter A. Stefan “in tears” yesterday afternoon, said Stefan, whose Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlor has been seeking a Massachusetts cemetery that will accept Tsarnaev’s body since Friday.

“The woman was in tears,” Stefan said. “She just said, ‘It would be nice if you could get him home.’ She’d love to have him back there, obviously. Regardless of what he did, she’s still his mother. What are you going to say to her? What can you say?”

Stefan said the body has been cleansed per Muslim tradition by Tsarnaev’s uncle, is wrapped in shrouds and is ready to be shipped or interred locally. No community has been willing to take it.

“I have refrigeration. I can hold him for a long time,” Stefan said. “It’d be a great idea if we could send him to Russia, but I would have to have something from the State Department. This is a national security situation. We can’t just send a body over like we’re dumping it.”

Gov. Deval Patrick said this morning the state will not intervene.

“This isn’t a state or a federal issue; it’s the family’s issue,” the governor told reporters at an event in New Bedford. “And the family has some options. I assume they will make a decision soon. I hope they do. I think everybody is feeling upset about what happened. But we showed the world in the immediate aftermath of the attacks what a civilization looks like, and I’m proud of what we showed and I think we continue to do that by stepping back and let the family make their decisions.”

The governor said if the body is buried in Massachusetts, he is not concerned the gravesite could become a shrine for Tsarnaev’s admirers or a magnet for protesters.

“Look, we are a strong community,” Patrick said. “We have strong feelings about the people who hurt us, but I think our focus now has to be on prosecuting those involved, and getting to the end of the investigation, which is ongoing, and repairing our communities, so that we can move forward.”

Given the difficulty in finding a cemetery, Stefan said, Tsarnaev’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, now “just wants a burial. It doesn’t even have to be a Muslim grave. That’s how far along we are.”

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, who is on a terror watch list and is the subject of an outstanding warrant for shoplifting, has not returned to the U.S. since her 26-year-old son was fatally shot in a gunfight with police in Watertown April 19 and run over by his 19-year-old sibling with their getaway car.

Worcester Police Chief Gary J. Gemme met with Stefan this morning at the funeral home, which has been the target of about a half-dozen protesters since Friday.

“Rest in hell!” and “Get that trash out of our city!” passers-by yelled out this morning.

“I think the American public is going to realize, we bury everybody,” Stefan said. “Right now emotions are running high.”

He said he’ll foot the bill himself to put Tsarnaev’s body on a plane, if Secretary of State John F. Kerry can assure him it will be respectfully dealt with on the other end of the flight.

“I’ll pay for it myself. It’s only a couple thousand dollars. My question is, is someone going to do something once I get him there? Not go back and forth and hold him there because he’s a terrorist or whatever,” Stefan said. “That day, have a service, a burial and end it. This is becoming an international political football.”

I was reading an article last year on how the bury the homeless, people who are just beyond destitute - no home, money or family. And what they do ( at least here in New york city) is throw them in a pine box and bury them on this island called Hart Island with other dead homeless. No marker, no name, nothing. They pretty much mass bury them like garbage and they are forgotten. And I was thinking, Osama Bin Laden was given more respect than these people. And here we go again; - This POS who killed 4 people including a kid and a cop is given more respect by liberals than some homeless guy who could very well have been a vet. It’s just un-freakin’-real. The guy is a subhuman piece of pig vomit. Chop him up and flush him down the toilet! To hell with him where he belongs!

I believe that includes a ceremonial washing, too, right after the sailors wake up.

“Bury him in a pig sty. That would work.”

Don’t even need to bury him, just drop him in. Give the remains to his mom after the hogs have recycled the terrorist a few times.

Stefan, have you ever heard the term, “crocodile tears”? Muslims are taught to lie to infidels all of their lives. She’s workin you, man...

Why not just blow him up like he did to everyone else. Send him back home in pieces.

Tell her to send cash for the trip and we will gladly send him to Timbuktu if that’s where she wants him.

Please send him to Russia with no expense money is BS.

>>throw them in a pine box and bury them on this island called Hart Island with other dead homeless.

an episode of All in the Family had an “Uncle Oscar” who died upstairs. Nobody in the family (Edith’s family I think) wanted to cough up money for a funeral and burial and Mike found out they could have him buried in something called Potter’s Field.

Wikipedia:
“A potter’s field or common grave is a term for a place for the burial of unknown or indigent people. The expression derives from the Bible, referring to a field used for the extraction of potter’s clay, which was useless for agriculture but could be used as a burial site.Madison Square Park, Washington Square Park and Bryant Park in New York City originated as potter’s fields. The city’s current potter’s field, and one of the largest cemeteries in the United States, with at least 800,000 burials, is on Hart Island.
Potter’s Field was also the name of a small cove of the East River just below the Williamsburg Bridge on the Brooklyn side, where bodies that have been in the river from November through the winter season surface in April as the rising temperature causes them to decompose and rise to the surface. The fluid dynamics of the East River causes a collection of these bodies every year off the docks of Potter’s Field”

Excellent form of transportation Dirtboy!

Too bad the Pelicano already dumped its load. It would be fitting to deliver the vile corpse on that ship to his mother symbolic of the way he lived his life.

If they do take him to Russia, they should fly right over his mother’s house and drop him from a couple thousand feet into the back yard.

Why is he not wrapped in BACON? I say wrap him in bacon, bag him up, and toss him overboard.
