While U.S. cemeteries have refused to take the corpse of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a veteran of the United States Air Force has stepped forward with an unconventional offer: bury the suspected terrorist in her burial plot at Arlington National Cemetery.
A very unexpected development in the Boston terror story, via Fox45:
US Air Force (USAF) veteran Julie Frein said she is willing to give up her burial plot at Arlington National Cemetery to Tamerlan Tsarnaev – the deceased Boston bombing suspect.
The Anne Arundel County woman told Fox45 she feels the terrorist suspect should be able to be laid to rest and just wants it to all be over.
“I feel sympathy for [his family] in that as long as this issue is open, they can’t have closure,” Frein told Fox45′s Joy Lepola. When asked how she thought Americans would react to the suspect being buried in a national cemetery, Frein replied, “Well the country would just have to get over that, wouldn’t they? Because nobody, nobody deserves to rot above ground.”
Frein has already called the funeral home in Massachusetts where Tsarnaev’s body is currently stored and is in the process of contacting the Office of Veteran Affairs to see if she will be able to offer up her plot.
