BOWLING GREEN – The County Administrator’s Office learned this morning through media reports that the deceased Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has apparently been buried in a Muslim cemetery on Sadie Lane in Caroline County.
 
“Caroline County was not consulted or given any input into the decision-making process for determining a burial site for this individual.
