LONGMONT - A Longmont man is offering to bury Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev on his farm, but there's a twist.
Nick Bacria escaped from Romania and landed in the United States back in 1989. He said he nearly died trying to do so.
Newspapers in Colorado wrote articles about his escape when he arrived in town. Later on, Bacria wrote a book about his experience.
Bacria said he was humbled with the life America gave him. He said it's the sort of life Boston bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarneav could have had.
"When you come from such an oppressed country like Romania, it's a dream come true," Bacria said.
Bacria knows few places are offering to bury Tamerlan, which is why he's offering up his land.
"So I'm thinking why don't I do something? I have the property," he said.
But to think this would be a normal burial with a casket and all, would be wrong.
"This is a very different situation," Bacria added.
Instead, he'd like to put him underground, somewhere else.
"The only place where they belong is in a septic tank," Bacria said.
Bacria understands how crazy this might sound, but he says this is what each suspect deserves.
"It's a good place to spend your eternity after they did what they did," Bacria said.
He's keeping the two septic tanks on his property available; knowing all the while no authority would ever take him up on his offer. But he's fine with that.
"I don't think anyone else would volunteer to find a place for them," Bacria said.
