A man is offering is grave yard plot in a Hamden Ct. Cemetery to the Tsarnaev family free of charge.

Paul Keane, the owner of the burial plot in Mt. Carmel Burying Ground took to his blog, "the Anti-Yale" to make the offer.

He wrote, "I am willing to donate a burial plot next to my mother in Mt. Carmel Burying Ground to the Tsarnaev family if they cannot obtain a plot. The only condition is that I do it in memory of my mother who taught Sunday School at the Mt. Carmel Congregational Church for twenty years and taught me to "love thine enemy. I own the plot.  No one can refuse me access."

The offer comes after the funeral director at the Worcester funeral home where Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased Boston bombing suspect was brought, said he can't find a cemetery willing to take Tsarnaev's body.

Tsarnaev was killed after a gunfight with police five days after the bombings. His younger brother and second suspect Dzhokhar is currently being treated in a prison jail.

Meanwhile, Tamerlan's mother is asking for the body to be sent back to Russia.
