Menino won’t allow bombing suspect’s burial in Boston

Officials hope a solution is near

Mayor Thomas M. Menino will not allow the body of ­Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev to be buried in the city, his spokeswoman said Tuesday, even as authorities in Worcester, where the body languishes in a funeral home, expressed confidence a solution is near.

“It would be disrespectful to our residents to accommodate this individual,” said Dot Joyce, Menino’s press secretary.
