NORTH ATTLEBORO —Dyer-Lake Funeral Home Director Timothy Nay said this morning that the body of the suspected Boston Marathon bomber was temporarily at the facility Thursday based on a request from a lawyer representing the suspect’s family.

Nay’s comments came after many area residents expressed outrage Thursday evening that the body of suspected bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been brought to North Attleboro. He also apologized to the local family attending a wake at the funeral home at the time the body was brought there.

    bobractecom- with your logic, the people who sold the materials for these monsters should also be commended .They were just private sellers making an honest buck. Are you an attorney? With your insensitivity, you'd make a good one.

    Evidently we aren't the only ones who want nothing to do with this guy - three cemeteries have already refused to bury him, and rightfully so. He isn't an American citizen, he hated this country and he planted bombs to try to kill her citizens. Why does he "deserve" a place on our soil?

    A grave in a cemetery is a place for quite reflection. His presence would make that impossible. You would have people who object to his being there, you would have people who would flock to it as some sort of holy site.

    No. The proper course of action would have been to cremate and dump him someplace where the world can forget him.

    One more thing - whom did the media think they were serving by sending chase teams after a body? They should take a close look at their priorities.

    I think Dyer-Lake is to be commended. They were asked to perform a service and they did so. Remember - they were doing this for the family, not for the murderer. Is it even legal for a funeral home to turn away a client that has the means to pay?

    I also think that this is proof as to the kind of people Americans are. Unlike some of our enemies, we do not drag the corpses of our enemies through the streets. They are treated with respect and returned to families.

    Thanks to the owners and staff of DL for having the courage to do what's right and especially to the support they give the community, both emotionally and financially.

    If you're having trouble "Decyphering" anything, it might have to do with the fact that your head is up your postier.

    During the time that these two guys were on the run, if they had associates, there could have been more attacks.

    During the time that this guy was laying in the hospital, if there were associates who thought he would give them up, there could have been more attacks.

    In fact, the FBI stated that the bombs were detonated not by phone, but by remote control. For a few days, they actually stated they were looking for a third suspect, as the photos of the first two didn't show either of them holding the trigger.

    During this time, when suspect #2 has a laywer, there is still the risk of another attack if there others out there.

    But you won't get those answers, cause Suspect #2's rights are more important than public safety or future victims, right?

    What will it take for Liberal pukes to FINALLY get the fact that you are dealing with Terrorists, not "Mis-understood youth", not "Freedom Fighers" but TERRORISTS?

    You are cannot deal with these people, for the same reason you cannot deal with Iran or North Korea. "Dealing" would require stability of mind and the ability for each party keep their promises.

    If this guy goes into the civilian system, he risks:

    One day being paroled. I used to think such things wouldn't happen till you have Former Underground Weathermen advising the current administration.

    He will develop his own little following in Prison. It is happening now with radical conversion to islam in most major prisons.

    The ability to tie up the legal system for years with nusance lawsuits. One might just work in a few years and he might get his freedom.

    Could Tim Nay of Dyer-Lake funeral home please identify the lawyer representing the terrorists? Just in case we have some other Muslim terrorists out there who wish to be legally represented. Another case of someone doing anything for a buck. Oh, and since the terrorist's family was on welfare, some of your tax dollars likely went to pay for this scum bag attorney.

    The biggest issue here is the lack of respect for the family mourning their 39 year old mother, daughter, sister, friend at the time of the transfer. The funeral director was stupid not to think the transfer would have been what many consider a newsworthy issue, and involve the number of news vans, helicopters and onlookers that were there. The last thing that family needed at that time was a circus surrounding their mourning.
    The body of the bomber is just that, a body. Who cares who takes care of it at this point so whether they were planning on "processing" it or not is really irrelevant. But you have to know that ANYTHING having to do with this issue is newsworthy.
    I am a neighbor of this funeral home. I did not go and protest nor beep my horn when driving by, solely out of respect for the family in there. I only wish Dyer-lake had shown the same respect and not exhibited such ignorance.

    I suppose that they must have put a gun to Timothy Nay's head to force him to take this monster (I won't call him a human being). He stated he was requested to take this monster by the family's attorney. So, Mr. Nay, any time any attorney makes a request, you automatically agree? Especially when this low life attorney is representing a terrorist that has killed innocent men, women, and a child?

    The funeral home (Dyer- Lake) apparently will do anything for a buck. Hope you can sleep well Mr. Nay. Best of luck with anyone who would want to use such a reputable, caring, facility as yours in the future. You just want to check into another line of work.

    GITMO? Really? I respectfully disagree with pretty much everything you've written - what I can decipher anyway. Are you involved in the interrogation of the surviving brother? No - so you have no idea what has and hasn't been admitted to by any of their associates.

    No, I don't think we are. What should have happened here, had this show been run by adults and not agenda driven children, is they should have taken Dummy #1's body to GITMO at the same time they took Dummy #2 down.

    We would have had more answers in a shorter amount of time, and trust me, the threat of joining Speedbump and Flashbang down at Club GITMO would have had his pals at UMASS, his wife and the rest of his associates cooperating a lot faster.

    But let's trade security for political correctness and call this a something it's not. If Libya is a non-issue and Ft. Hood "Workplace Violence", what should we call this? A case of "Excessive Protesting?"

    Of course, the President that has people like BIll Ayers on speed-dial isn't likely to be too harsh on these guys. This is just the modern day "Panther Party" and "Weather Underground".

    But what does it matter Addled? I bet it happens occasionally that a funeral home is used for transitory purposes only and the body is then passed on to another provider - but who cares? It is on CNN, Boston.Com, here - etc. Why is it a big "news event" about the travels of this cadaver? Should we be upset that a 2012 mini-van with premium fuel was used instead of an older model using regular? Not sure about the necessity for a police escort - that is strange. Should we insist on public disclosure by the state when a pedophiles remains are transported to a funeral home so we can make signs and protest that funeral home for preparing the body for burial/cremation? No wonder this country has lost its edge in many areas, we're focusing on all the wrong things!

    Yeah, this all made so much sense: release the body from the Boston Medical Examiner's office and bring it to N. Attleboro four FOUR whole hours until it can be transferred somewhere else. How asinine. They couldn't leave his body in Boston for four more hours until they transferred it to Worcester or wherever. Good plan guys!

    What do you propose the medical examiner to do with a body of a criminal such as this? Please be realistic and not suggest a corpse (really Charlie, you cannot catch terrorist germs from the body passing through your town) might be handled? Lay off the Rush Limbaugh and The Apprentice, you're losing touch with reality just like them Charlie.

    Why did Dyer-Lake Funeral Home agree to the terrorist lawyer's request to bring this piece of trash to their business? If they had any decency, they should have said NO very loudly. Not a very wise ethical or business decision. That lack of good judgment on Dyer-Lake will negatively impact their business. Very stupid decision.

    Shame on the media and their helicopters for following the hearse and making this non-story an issue. This is the "body" of a misguided punk, not Saddam or Osama. Regardless of what evil deed he has done, his family has the right to bury him and even mourn him - who are we to judge the handling of a corpse? What exactly is the point of protesting the funeral home - they are simply doing their jobs in processing a body as requested by the family taking possession of it? Should the hospital be picketed for trying to save his life too? The biggest tribute you can provide the victims is support - go cut their grass, bake them a cake, contribute to the fund, offer a helping hand on day 365 versus right now. The victims will soon be forgotten with the next big news item - don't let them be forgotten. The biggest insult to the monster is to turn your back on him and his ideology.

    Police escort for a dead bomber makes no sense, how much more money are these people going to cost us?
