A Massachusetts police chief begged Wednesday for help in finding a burial place for Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, saying that guarding the funeral home where his body is being held is a drain on town resources.

"There is a need to do the right thing," Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme said. "We are not barbarians. We bury the dead."

Tsarnaev, 26, has been dead for almost three weeks. Funeral director Peter Stefan accepted his remains and prepared themin accordance with Muslim tradition but no one has agreed to bury them.

Gemme said he wasn't happy about Stefan's "unilateral decision" to let the body come to Worcester, but believes he acted out of compassion and ethical obligation.

Peter Stefan, funeral director and owner of Graham, Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors in Worcester, Mass., has been trying without luck to find a burial spot for Tamerlan Tsarnaev

He's far angrier that no one in the government has stepped up to the solve the dilemma. He blasted state officials for offering to bury Tsarnaev at a prison site and then reneging without explanation.

His calls to officials at the city, state and federal level have yielded no answers. Earlier this week, both the State Department and the Massachusetts governor said they would not intervene to find a final resting place in the U.S. or abroad.

Gemme said shipping the body to Russia, where Tsarnaev's parents live, was "not an option" for his uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, who is handling arrangements for the family out of "compassion."

Stefan - who has been targeted by protests - has said the best solution for all involved would be sending the remains to Russia, but it's expensive and he would need a guarantee that someone will accept and bury them there.

"There are no immediate prospects," Gemme said.

A retired Vermont teacher, Paul Keane, has offered to surrender a family plot in a Hamden, Conn., cemetery to the Tsarnaev family as a tribute to his mother, who taught him to "love thine enemy."

"I have received hate emails and statements which sound like threats, but I will not withdraw my offer," Keane said in an email Wednesday.

It's unclear, though, if Keane has the final say. The administrator of the cemetery, Mount Carmel Burying Grounds, did not return a call for comment.

In the meantime, Gemme said, the police department is being forced to keep order at Stefan's funeral home, using resources that are needed elsewhere in the community.

Would you feel the same way if it was your child? Or spouse? A trusted and well-loved family member?

You do realize that water that goes down the toilet is eventually put back into the drinking supply?
Yes he's done bad things but letting him sit somewhere without being buried isn't right. I'm assuming its against the religion but having him cremated and taking him back to Russia would seem like the best option.

They need to tell the family to make arrangements, or cremate him and give his ashes to his family.
They bury or cremate the homeless. Do that

Wasnt thinking of the water supply. Then put him in a field and let the buzzards have him. Throw him out to sea, there are a million things to do with his remains other than using our resources to keep him even when his own family dont want him.

 Even if they bury him somewhere, there will have to be constand guard on the cemetary. Or they cannot release where he will end up. There will be lots of people waiting to desecrate the grave.

It is sick and sad, but it's the truth.
