Question of site for bombing suspect’s burial goes on

WORCESTER — The frustrated effort to bury Boston Marathon bombing suspect ­Tamerlan Tsarnaev showed mounting strain Wednesday, as Worcester Police Chief Gary J. Gemme pleaded for an end to the lingering dispute that has cost his department more than $30,000 in security expenses.

‘‘We are not barbarians; we bury the dead,” Gemme said grimly outside the funeral home, guarded by police, where Tsarnaev’s body has been held since Friday. “I am publicly appealing to those with authority to provide a burial site. Do so, and do so quickly.”
