This morning Peter Stefan, the funeral director who accepted his body is running out of options after being turned down by every cemetery he has approached. Stefan, owner of the Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlor in Worcester, Massachusetts joins “Starting Point” to discuss the Tsarnaev’s uncle wanting him to buried in Cambridge.

    IS HE OUT OF HIS FREAKING MIND? He should be commended for taking the body of this piece of scum? If I lived in Boston, his funeral parlor is the LAST one I would ever consider in the future for buying anyone of my family. Did he do it for the money or the notoriety? Well, he sure got noticed, but NOT in the way he thought, I'm sure. Throw the piece of trash in the ocean, or better yet, cremate him and send a message to others like him that THIS is what happens when you attack us!

    Are you kidding? His wife and parents should be responsible for the expense of burying this moron. BTW, he should be cremated and shipped back to his parents. We don't want him buried in our country.

    This family lived off the American government for a number of years.....welfare, food stamps and the luxury of very good educations in very good schools. This is more than some Americans get, these days. His body is that family's responsibility, not ours. We owe them nothing. It's quite the contrary.

    These guys were/are terrorists!!! Innocent Americans were killed and injured by these thugs. If they don't like Americans, then get the hell out of our country! We've got to tighten up on who we allow in our country. Enough is enough.
