Report: Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Parents Now Considering Cremation
ABC reports the parents of Tamerlan Tsarnaev are now considering cremation since Russia is unlikely to accept his body:
[T]he family of Tamarlen Tsarnaev is now considering cremating the body and trying to transport the ashes back to Russia, then burying them. Although cremation is against Islamic law, the parents see it as the only way of burying their son's remains, according to Heda Saratova, a local human rights activist and spokeswoman for the family.
But Russia might not accept the ashes. There are companies in Boston that will do burials at sea -- both of bodies and cremated remains. I wonder if they have called New England Burials at Sea.
