Burial of Boston Bombing Suspect in Muslim Cemetery in Caroline County

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. We had no advanced notice of the decision and unfortunately learned of the selection of a burial site through the media” said County Administrator Charles M. Culley, Jr. “We would much prefer to be associated with positive news reports from the national media, but unfortunately had no say in the matter.”
 
The Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, Mr. Floyd Thomas and the Sheriff of Caroline County, will be holding a press conference in front of the Old Caroline County Courthouse at 3 p.m., Friday May 10.
