the investigation into those boston bombings. Investigators are focusing fresh attention now on the widow of tamerlan tsarnaev katherine russell as we're learning the official cause of death for tamerlan tsarnaev. His body sitting in a funeral home with to one willing to bury it. Gio benitez is here with the latest. Good morning to you. Cemeteries in new jersey, connecticut and massachusetts have already refused to bury the body of the alleged bomber. This as investigators try to figure out if his widow knew about the plan. This morning, cemetery after cemetery is refusing to bury the body of alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev. The body is at a funeral home in worcester, massachusetts, and many residents are furious. My sympathies are not with this terrorist but with the families who are now suffering the loss of limb and life. He just bombed us. Taking care of him, it's not fair. The funeral director who picked up tsarnaev's body says he's looked for burial plots in three states. Let me just leave it. They don't do 5 in this country. We bury the worst of the worth here. ReporteYS TAMERLAN Reportedly rung over by his brother dzhokhar after a firefight with police died of gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to the head and torso. This as we see what may be the bombmaking factory. Tamerlan's apartment, dzhokhar allegedly told investigators that he and his brother built the bombs here. Overnight, abc news spoke with the father of one of the students accused of trying to get rid of dzhokhar's laptop and backpack full of fireworks. Translator: From the beginning I did not believe and I do not believe right now that my son is guilty. I don't believe it. Reporter: And what about tamerlan's wife, katherine russell? Abc news has learned the female dna found on one of the bombs is not hers. Either way the fbi still wants to know what tamerlan may have said to her in a phone call just days after the bombing. And a lawyer for the widow has said she knew nothing about the bombing plan and was shocked when it happened. Meanwhile, dzhokhar has told investigators that his brother was the leader and author of the plan, so still weeks later so many questions. And continuing questions about whether we can believe what dzhokhar is saying, of course. Absolutely. Thank you. Gio.
