Bombing security payment sought for Worcester

The body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev was kept at Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Home for five days in May, while Tsarnaev’s relatives looked for a burial site. In the meantime, police dealt with a crowd of media and protesters, some of whom held vigils.

At the time, Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme said the details were costing $10,000 per day.

Tsarnaev was eventually buried in Virginia.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that Sen. Michael Moore, a Millibury Democrat, filed an amendment to a supplemental spending bill to cover Worcester’s costs.

Legislators must still agree on a final bill.
