The body of the Boston bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, has been buried in Doswell, Virginia.

The body was secretly moved at 3 a.m. on Thursday morning.

The remains were brought to Al-Barzakh Cemetery, a Muslim cemetery, after spending a week at Graham Putnam & Mahoney funeral home in Worcester.

The funeral director attempted to help Tsarnaev's uncle find a burial plot for Tsarnaev however, local cemeteries declined to take the body.

Tsarnaev was killed in a shoot out with police in Watertown five days after the April 15 marathon bombing. His brother and accomplice Dzhokhar is currently in a hospital at a Federal Prison.
