BOSTON (AP) -- A Massachusetts funeral home director is scrambling to find a cemetery that will bury a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Worcester funeral home owner Peter Stefan has 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body. He says protesters have gathered outside his business, upset with his decision to handle the funeral.

But Stefan says everybody deserves a dignified burial service, no matter the circumstances of his or her death.

Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with authorities four days after the bombing. Police have said he ran out of ammunition before his brother dragged his body under a vehicle while fleeing the scene.

Stefan says Tsarnaev's death certificate says he died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso.

Fairview Cemetery, Boston's "potter's field," is the logical solution. Its where the public buries the indigent and the unknown.
