Tamerlan Tsarneav’s body has been at the medical examiner’s office since he died more than a week ago. Police said he ran out of ammunition before his brother, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, dragged his body under a vehicle while fleeing the scene. His cause of death will not be made public until his remains are claimed.

Tamerlan’s widow, Katherine Russell, said Tuesday through her attorney that she wants his body released to the Tsarnaev family.

Tamerlan’s uncle Ruslan Tsarni of Maryland told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that family members will take possession of the body, though he would not elaborate.
