Family may decide not to conduct second autopsy

Cambridge officials said the city has not received a formal application to bury Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the city-owned cemetery, and urged Tsarnaev’s family not to make such a request.

“The difficult and stressful efforts of the residents of the City of Cambridge to return to a peaceful life, would be adversely impacted by the turmoil, protests and wide spread media presence at such an interment,” City Manager Robert W. Healy said in a statement. “The families of loved ones interred in the Cambridge Cemetery also deserve to have their deceased family members rest in peace.”
