The Islamic Society of Boston has been contacted about holding a funeral for the Boston bombing suspect killed in a shootout with police.
Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended the mosque, and an uncle of the brothers, Alvi Tsarnaev, asked about holding a funeral for 26-year-old Tamerlan, CNN reports.
The mosque said it has passed the information on to an Islamic service that handles funeral arrangements.
The brothers are also accused of shooting an MIT police officer to death, sparking the chase and manhunt that left Tamerlan dead and Dzhokhar captured after hiding in a boat for almost a full day.
If the funeral is held at The Islamic Society of Boston a layperson will officiate, CNN says, because none of the top imams at the mosque want to appear to be condoning the bombing that killed three and injured more than 250.
