Tamerlan's mysterious uncle, who was quick to throw Tamerlan and his younger brother under the bus, has now taken charge of handling Tamerlan's burial arrangements. Alternative investigative news reporters have confirmed that Uncle Ruslan is a CIA asset handled by his ex-father-in-law, long-time top CIA official Graham Fuller, the brainchild of the Iran-Contra scandal that rocked the administration of President Ronald Reagan. To no body's surprise, Uncle Ruslan has blocked plans to conduct an independent autopsy because that would violate Islamic tradition, a religion Uncle Ruslan described as being "a fake religion." The Boston Globe reports on Uncle Rulsan's plans for his nephew's remains:
Relatives of Tamerlan Tsarnaev accompanied by religious leaders visited the Graham Putnum & Mahoney Funeral Parlors Sunday morning and planned this afternoon to wash Tsarnaev’s body in the traditional Islamic fashion.
Tsarnaev’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, is overseeing burial arrangements for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect, with the help of funeral home director Peter Stefan. It is still not known where Tsarnaev will be buried — a handful of local cemetaries have rejected requests to bury Tsarnaev.
“I appreciate the help that I’m receiving from Mr. Stefan,” Tsarni said to reporters Sunday. “Tamerlan Tsarnaev has no other place to be buried. There is no other place to accept this body.
“He lived in America. He grew up here and for the last 10 years he decided to be in Cambridge, therefore any contemplation that the body should be taken to a home country...his home country is Cambridge, Massachusetts,” Tsarni said.
Family members had been expected to have a second medical examination conducted on Sunday, but it is now unclear whether any further examination if Tsarnaev’s body will take place.
Stefan initially said he was expecting an independent medical examiner to be sent by the family’s attorneys. But Stefan said he was told this morning that second full autopsy will not be performed, but that representatives from the family’s legal team will likely photograph the body before it is washed.
Once the body is washed, no further medical examination can be conducted without violating the religious burial tradition, Stefan said.
“Once that body is washed and shrouded, the only place we’re going after that is to the cemetery,” Stefan said . . .Investigative reporter Daniel Hopsicker correctly called it first two days ago when he suggested that the CIA had taken control of the Boston bombing investigation as he lamented the disgraceful role the American media has played in covering the story.
