When Boston police praised a “courageous and compassionate individual” for helping find a burial site for bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, they were talking about Martha Mullen of Richmond, Virginia. Mullen tells The Boston Globe that she became upset when she heard that people were protesting the burial of the marathon bombing suspect and started searching for a suitable site. “The fact that people were picketing this poor man [funeral director Peter Stefan] who was just trying to help really upset me,” she said. “Jesus says [to] love our enemies.” She found the Al-Barzakh Cemetery in Doswell, Virginia, and put them in touch with the Worcester police, who were guarding the funeral home where Tsarnaev’s body was being kept.
