Tsarnaev Body Given Back to Family

The body of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was given back to his family Thursday, while outraged crowds noted that it had arrived at a funeral home about 30 miles south of Boston the same day. A state official said Tsarnaev’s body will not be returning to Russia, after a rejection to conduct the funeral in Dagestan. It’s unclear exactly where Tsarnaev’s funeral will be held. Meanwhile, his brother, Dzhokhar, told investigators Thursday that the brothers had originally been planning an attack for July Fourth, but they moved the date up when they finished the bombs early.
