A Fort Wayne company that transports human remains has offered to fly the body of a Boston Marathon bombing suspect to Russia.

Eagle's Wings Air president Frank Kaiser tells The Journal Gazette he made the offer to help resolve the debate over what to do with the body of 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Worcester, Mass., funeral home director Peter Stefan says he has received 120 offers of graves but none have worked out because local officials don't want the body.

Kaiser's offer might not help. Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme said Wednesday sending the body to Russia is "not an option."

Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police days after the April 15 bombings. His 19-year-old brother was captured and is in a prison hospital.
