Tsarnaev's remains had been at a funeral home in Worcester, Mass. Worcester police chief Kerry Hazelhurst said Thursday the body “is now entombed,” but would provide no further details as to what city accepted the remains.

“As a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased,” Hazelhurst said in a statement. “His body is no longer in the City of Worcester and is now entombed.”

Tsarnaev, 26, died after a shootout with police. His brother, Dzhokhar, 19, was captured after a citywide manhunt later that day and is presently in custody.
