Local resident says he is willing to donate burial plot to family of Boston bombing suspect

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA, Ohio - A local resident said he is willing to donate an extra burial plot to the family of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The family of Tsarnaev has been constantly rejected by cemeteries in Massachusetts following his death.

Tsarnaev and his brother were suspects in the bombing that occurred on April 15. Three people were killed and over 200 injured.

Tsarnaev was killed by police days later after an escape attempt. His brother was captured and is in police custody.

The Associated Press reports that the mother wants her son returned to Russia for burial, but the funeral director can't get anyone in Russia to respond either.

Despite protests, the plot donor, who wishes to remain unidentified, said it was time to move on. "Its over and done with. The man has a right to be buried," the donor said.

The donated burial plot would be located at Crown Hill Burial in Vienna; However, Bob Moses, president of Crown Hill Cemetery, said he has consulted with his legal department and they can and will stop Tsarnaev from being buried there.

The donor of the plot tells 21 News, "I am disappointed, but I understand why they would do this. The important thing [is] people heard the word of God that we are to love our enemies."
