(CNN) — The difficult question of where Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body would be laid to rest appears to have been settled.
The remains of the slain Boston Marathon bombings suspect have been entombed thanks to a “courageous and compassionate individual (who) came forward,” police in Worcester, Massachusetts, said Thursday.
Police did not say where the remains were entombed, but did say that they are “no longer in the city of Worcester,” where the body had been at a funeral home while a relative and officials tried to determine what to do.
The city’s police chief “thanks the community that provided the burial site,” police said in a written statement.

(CNN) — There may not be a single cemetery in Massachusetts or in the entire country that is willing to be Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s final resting place, a funeral director told CNN on Monday.
And that has left Peter Stefan in a very difficult spot.
“I think they (the cemeteries that have been asked) probably fear reprisals from people who have loved ones being buried there, people who may potentially buy lots there,” the funeral director said.
Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, are accused of setting off two deadly explosions at the Boston Marathon in April.
The funeral director says he is trying to do everything he can, but he’s struggling.

Paramedics administered CPR, but Kelly was pronounced dead after being transported to Atlanta Medical Center.
Kelly felt nauseous during the day Wednesday before he passed out on the couch, prompting his mother to call 911.

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -
Guy Heinze Jr., who was re-indicted last year in the slaying of eight people in a Glynn County mobile home nearly four years ago, is back in court Tuesday as lawyers debate motions before setting a trial date.
Last fall, Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett threw out some statements Heinze made to police in the hours after they found Heinze’s father and six others beaten to death in August 2009. An eighth victim later died of injuries.
Scarlett said hours of interviews and a lie detector test with Heinz will be thrown out because the suspect hadn’t been read his Miranda Rights.
Heinze’s attorneys have filed dozens of motions to have evidence suppressed in the case.
