The body of Boston marathon bombings suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed during a standoff with police on April 19, has been buried after an unnamed individual came forward to assist police.

Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme made a public appeal on Wednesday, saying that several offers of a burial plot had been withdrawn for fear of negative publicity. Today, police announced that Tsarnaev has been buried.

“After the chief’s public appeal, the marathon bombing suspect’s body has been moved from Worcester and is entombed,” Worcester police said today.

Police said that a “courageous and compassionate individual” came forward to assist in the proper burial of Tsarnaev’s body. No information was provided on the individual that assisted in the burial, or where the body was buried.
