    DOSWELL, Va. — Officials in the county where the remains of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been buried say they were stunned to learn of the burial and they are looking into whether the law was followed in the process. “I’m sure that if no laws were broken ... there’s nothing we can do,” said Floyd Thomas, chairman of the board of supervisors of Caroline County. “What we would do is make sure that all of the laws regarding this particular burial were adhered to. If they were not, then I believe we would have to look at...

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body has been buried, according to Worcester police, ending a days-long saga that left the Boston Marathon terror mastermind’s corpse in limbo as multiple cities refused to accept it. A “courageous and compassionate individual came forward” and provided a burial plot, said Worcester police Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst. “His body is no longer in the city of Worcester and is entombed.” Hazelhurst would not say where the body has been buried and would not provide any other details. Developing...

    Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s uncle arrived at a Worcester, Mass., funeral home yesterday to prepare his nephew’s corpse for a Muslim burial. But the home’s director, Peter Stefan, said he has still been unable to find a single cemetery willing to offer a plot to bury the terrorist Tsarnaev, 26. “I’m tired of dealing with these cowards,” Stefan said yesterday of area cemetery directors, after receiving Tsarnaev’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni. “Let’s separate the sins from the sinners.”

    The family of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect killed in a shootout with police can’t find a place to bury him, even as his body is being prepared for just that purpose. An uncle of suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev arrived in Worcester, Mass., on Sunday to “prepare the body” of his nephew for burial. Ruslan Tsarni, of Mongomery Village, Md., came to the city about 40 miles west of Boston with three other men, who were not family members, and met with the director of the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died from "gunshot wounds of torso and extremities" and blunt trauma to his head and torso, said Worcester funeral home owner Peter Stefan,...

    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.

    A MASSIVE road four football fields wide and running from Mexico to Canada through the heartland of the United States is being proposed amid controversy over security and the damage to the environment. The "nation's most modern roadway", proposed between Laredo in Texas and Duluth, Minnesota, along Interstate 35, would allow the US to bypass the west coast ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to import goods from China and the Far East into the heart of middle America via Mexico, saving both cost and time. However, critics argue that the ten-lane road would lay a swathe of concrete...

    The official small mammal of Texas is becoming a Yankee. Blame global warming. Or maybe just wanderlust Texans feel proprietary about the armored mammal, but we hardly have a monopoly on its range. It's not even a native. The nine-banded armadillo, the most prolific of the 20 species of armadillo and the only one to live in the United States, crossed the Rio Grande about 150 years ago. In recent years, though, it has been spotted as far north as Illinois. "I don't know exactly how they get here," said Joyce Hofmann, a research scientist with the Illinois Natural History...

    ...A debate over whether to place speed humps on North 35th Street in Arlington County has generally pitted the families in the modest brick ramblers in one neighborhood against the empty-nesters living in the white-columned homes of another. The parents say their kids need safer streets; the other side says the humps are unsafe. Herring describes the pitched battle as "class warfare at its worst." Community meetings have turned into shouting matches worthy of Britain's House of Commons. "Keep Kids Alive -- Drive 25" signs have been stolen from yards. Fliers and counterfliers are flying. A signature drive was launched....

    "She's a former first lady, a United States senator, and a potential 2008 presidential candidate. But to hear Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton tell it, all of that pales in comparison to her real childhood dreams," reported Newsday in an attempted puff piece on the junior Senator from New York. "My whole life has been a speed bump," she said to laughs." Yep, that pretty much sums it up. Failed at everything she ever tried, so she decided to go into politics. And this woman wants to be President? "'I wanted desperately to be an Olympic athlete,' Clinton said Monday at...

    A road ramp that uses passing cars to generate power has been developed. Dorset inventor Peter Hughes' Electro-Kinetic Road Ramp creates around 10kW of power each time a car drives over its metal plates. More than 200 local authorities had expressed an interest in ordering the £25,000 ramps to power their traffic lights and road signs, Mr Hughes said. The ramps generate up to 50kW of power. Around 300 jobs are due to be created in Somerset for a production run of 2,000 ramps next year. Plates in the ramp move up and down as vehicles pass over them, driving...

Casselberry police say 17-year-old Brandon Burkhart was riding on the hood of a car Sunday night, when he fell off and was accidentally run over.
