Burial of Boston terror suspect delayed after funeral home refuses to take his body. What would you do with this body?
The funeral of Boston terror suspect Usaamah Abdullah Rahim is being held up because a local cemetery refused to take his body.
Rahim, 26, was fatally shot on Tuesday after investigators said he wielded a military-style knife as they sought to question him about ‘terrorist-related information.’
He was allegedly planning to behead the controversial anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller and police officers and was under surveillance by authorities.

Another unnamed funeral home has now agreed to take the body, he said.
