Tamerlan Tsarnaev's final resting place didn't stay secret for long. The suspected Boston Marathon bomber was laid to rest in a Muslim cemetery in Doswell, Virginia, which sits about 15 miles outside of Richmond, reports the Boston Globe, which got the scoop from the Virginia woman who helped broker the move. After seeing news reports about the protests plaguing the funeral home that was holding Tsarnaev's body, Martha Mullen contacted a funeral services group associated with the Islamic Society of Greater Richmond; it in turn provided a plot in the Al-Barzakh Cemetery. The Islamic organization also confirmed the news to the Globe. (Read more Tamerlan Tsarnaev stories.)
