Boston: Police in Worcester Massachusetts said the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been buried outside of the city.

Police said in a statement on Thursday that "a courageous and compassionate individual came forward" to properly bury the remains, which had been at a Worcester funeral home for about a week.

Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst says the body is no longer in Worcester and is now entombed. Police did not disclose where the body was taken.

Tsarnaev's body had been at the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors for a week. Director Peter Stefan says he could not find a community willing to take the body, including Cambridge, where the family had lived for a decade. Tsarnaev's uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, had custody of the body.
