Death certificate on how Boston bombing suspect died

Massachusetts funeral home owner said he is struggling to find a graveyard willing to accept the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shoot out with police four days after an attack that left three dead and 264 injured.

Peter Stefan, owner of the funeral home in Worcester, Massachusetts, said he would turn to government officials for help if he cannot find a resting place for Tsarnaev soon.

"Everyone deserves a burial. It doesn't matter who it is," Stefan said in a telephone interview.

"I can't pick and choose."

Tsarnaev died from gunshot wounds to his torso and extremities and blunt trauma to his head and body, according to a person familiar with the death certificate.
