DOSWELL, Va. (AP) - Officials say they will examine whether all laws were followed in carrying out the hushed burial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev in Virginia.
    
If not, leaders in rural Caroline County say they could seek to have his body moved elsewhere.
    
Sheriff Tony Lippa and Floyd Thomas, chairman of the Caroline Board of Supervisors, spoke Friday at a news conference. They say no state or local officials were notified that Tsarnaev would be buried in a private Muslim cemetery about 25 miles north of Richmond.
    
Permission is not required from officials as long as laws are followed. While they say they don't want Caroline County remembered as the resting place for someone tied to such a horrific act, there's likely nothing they can do.
    
They say they are concerned about vandalism or the site becoming a shrine to anti-American sympathizers.
