Funeral home: No one wants to bury bomb suspect

BOSTON - 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.

But Stefan says everybody deserves a dignified burial service, no matter the circumstances of his or her death.

Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with authorities four days after the bombing. Police have said he ran out of ammunition before his brother dragged his body under a vehicle while fleeing the scene.

Stefan says Tsarnaev's death certificate says he died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso.
