Tamerlan Tsarnaev(CNN) — The difficult question of where Tamerlan Tsarnaev should be buried appears to have been settled.

The body of the slain Boston Marathon bombings suspect has been entombed thanks to a “courageous and compassionate individual (who) came forward,” police in Worcester, Massachusetts, said Thursday.

Police did not say where the body was entombed, but did say that the body was “no longer in the city of Worcester,” where the body had been at a funeral home while relatives and officials tried to determine what to do.

The city’s police chief “thanks the community that provided the burial site,” police said in a statement.
