I like what the police chief said last week: "We are not barbarians; we bury the dead." Where do people get the idea that burying the corpse of a killer is somehow condoning the atrocious thing he did? Even in burials now, this country is becoming a nation of NIMBYs.

Perhaps his remains should have been disposed of via explosion. It seems just and appropriate.

would it be against his family religion to be cremated? I know they said that he is not there, his body is. But cremation would have been a better answer, and easier to do something with.

It is my understanding that cremation is against their religion. This lady is a better person than I am as I would have cremated the body any way and thrown the ashes down the sewer. If the next of kin could not and would not find a resting place, then they have nothing more to say as it was not the funeral homes responsibility to store the body for ever.
