Funeral homes refuse to bury body of Boston Bombing suspect

BOSTON, MA -

 BOSTON (AP) - 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.
