Flabbergasted Virginia officials have asked authorities there to look into whether the secret burial of accused marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a rural Muslim cemetery broke any laws but one expert says they likely have no ground to stand on.
Tsarnaevs burial at the Al-Barzakh Cemetery in Doswell, Va., sent shock waves yesterday through Caroline County, where local officials unaware of the hush-hush funeral until reporters started flooding their voicemails say they dont want the stain of his remains on their quiet community.
The brouhaha prompted the state attorney generals office to step in and review the burial, according to Floyd Thomas, chairman of the county board of supervisors.
Of all the localities, Thomas said, this is probably one of the last ones we would have thought of.
But with the death certificate and burial permit already on file and the body in a private cemetery, there was no obligation to even inform local officials, according to an expert in burial law....

Hmmmm. Well, Bin Laden was dumped in the ocean. Why was this schmuck so special he needed to be buried on land?
Somebody knows where it is.
Reporter mentioned Bowling Green.
Google earth is your friend.
I think the town folks will take care of this themselves.
Because he is a terrorist and NOT an American citizen.
...what about the bodies?
Usually they would be buried on the prison grounds or put into a reserved section of some cemetery (potters field).
To say that I agree with you would be a gross understatement.
What part of “we are at war with islam” do you not understand?
Bill the family. There is no reason for them not to have handled this. Now the costs of guarding his grave are borne by others.
Exhume him & give him to the family. It’s their problem.
Probably for the same reason your state's officials allow them in New York. A quick check on Google Maps finds your state has no less than 10.
You don't see a problem? Let me give you a few:
Refused? They opened it a mile south of my house years ago!
>What do people think should have been done with this mans corpse?
It should have been covered in pig fat and burned with the ashes spread in a pig sty.
I wondered that as well...might be cedar chips to keep bugs and worms away....
Look at the bright side; when we zero in ion the location we know where to urinate and spread pork products.
Katherine Russell is lawyering up!......Bombers wife hires Terroism attorney.....wonder who is funding this for her?
“Dratel once represented a Pakistani man living in New York who pleaded guilty to supporting Hezbollah by broadcasting the Islamic militant groups TV channel to U.S. viewers. He also defended an Australian charged with being a soldier for the Taliban.”
She must know a whole lot more than the press is letting on.
Do a quick google search. It would take a few seconds to find it. And that is on a 1200 baud modem.
Now that's a creative solution, I like the way you think!
