The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev says his nephew has been buried in Virginia.

Tsarnaev, 27, was reportedly interred at the Al-Barzakh Cemetery, in the small community of Doswell, about 15 miles outside of Richmond, the Boston Globe reported.

Ruslan Tsarni said Friday that the body was buried with the help of a "faith coalition." He would not say where in Virginia the remains had been entombed.

The burial this week ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester, Mass., as cemeteries refused to take the remains.

Tsarnaev was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gunbattle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured later in the day and remains in custody.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
