Boston Bombing Suspect’s Widow Not Saying If She Plans To Hold Funeral

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The widow of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has not yet said whether she plans a funeral or wants to claim his body.

Katherine Russell’s lawyer, Amato DeLuca, by Thursday had not responded to questions sent through a spokesman the previous day asking whether she plans a funeral for her husband and whether she is in touch with his parents or the medical examiner’s office.

Her lawyer says Katherine Russell has switched to using her maiden name.

Tsarnaev’s father has said he is returning to the United States. He has said he wants to bring his body back to Russia for burial.

Russell, as Tsarnaev’s wife, would be first in line to claim his body once the Massachusetts medical examiner’s office is done with it.
