NEWS / Boston marathon bombing suspect died of gunshot wounds, blunt trauma – death certificate

The man suspected of masterminding the Boston marathon bombings died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso, his death certificate states.

The details from Tamerlan Tsarnaevs death certificate were read out last week by Peter Stefan, the director of Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors in Worcester, Massachusetts, the Associated Press reports.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokar Tsarnaev are suspected of organizing and carrying out the April 15 bombings that occurred near the Boston Marathon finish line. Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured. Authorities also say the Tsarnaev brothers killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology security guard.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed after a gunfight with the police. He reportedly ran out of ammunition and received fatal gunshot wounds. His brother, who had also been wounded, was reported to have run him over with a car in an attempt to flee from the police. After an unprecedented manhunt in Boston suburb of Watertown, Dzhokar Tsarnaev was found hiding under a boat on a trailer.

Dzhokar Tsarnaev has been charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death, and could face the death penalty if convicted.

While Dzhokar Tsarnaev reportedly told investigators that he and his older brother were planning to go to New York City to detonate explosives on Times Square, his mother, who lives in Russia, has denied her sons involvement in the Boston marathon bombings.

The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens who immigrated to the United States in 2002. Tamerlan was an aspiring boxer who purportedly became an adherent of radical Islam. Dzhokar was a student of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and has been a naturalized US citizen for almost eight months.

Tamerlan Tsarnaevs body is yet to be buried. Burial plans have been stymied by protests and refusals by city officials to allow for the interment of his body. Ruslan Tsarni, the uncle of the Tsarnaev brothers who had called them losers for what they had done and blamed them for bringing shame to the Chechen community, has been trying to find a place that would bury his nephews body.

Tsarnis original intent was to bury him in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Tamerlans place of residence. However, Cambridge city officials have come out with a statement Sunday saying they will not allow his body to be interred at the Cambridge city cemetery, citing concerns that the funeral may cause disturbances.
