The fact that no one will take his body for burial is ridiculous.

Why? It's within in their rights as a private business and could be a public safety issue.

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Why not bury him at sea like they did with Bin Laden?

People who have done worse are buried in cemeteries.

Your point is? Also, provide an analogous example.

This link is probably paywalled, but here ya go:

a number of reviled, ­infamous figures, from Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo to defrocked priest John Geoghan, have been laid to rest with minimal outrage, typically in private ceremonies that drew little attention.

Geoghan, who was accused of molesting about 150 children and became a symbol of the clergy sexual abuse scandal, was buried in a Brookline cemetery, the burial site of former Boston mayors and several members of the Kennedy family. Geoghan, who was killed in prison in 2003, was buried with no protests after a private funeral in West ­Roxbury.

DeSalvo — the man known as the Boston Strangler, who admitted to 13 murders — was buried in Peabody in 1973, ­after he was stabbed to death in his cell as he slept.

More recently, Newtown gunman Adam Lanza, who killed 27 people before shooting himself, was laid to rest privately at an undisclosed ­location, according to published reports.
...

“There are convicted murderers buried in Roman Catholic cemeteries,” said Bob ­Biggins, a funeral director in Rockland and past president of the National Funeral Directors Association.

Presidential assassins have also received burial. Lee ­Harvey Oswald is buried in a Fort Worth cemetery, where workers are forbidden to provide the location of his grave. Several infamous mass murderers, including Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer, were cremated. Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber who was put to death in 2001, was also cremated.

In Massachusetts, the case of Charles Stuart, who shot and killed his pregnant wife then blamed her death on a black gunman, caused widespread furor. In 1990, he was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett after taking his own life. At the funeral, the minister said, “We cannot explain why the events of the past week took place, and we can never understand them.”

Six years later, John Salvi, who killed two receptionists at abortion clinics, was buried in Peabody after killing himself in his prison cell. In a eulogy, a minister described Salvi as a “troubled young man whose uncontrollable emotions drove him to act irrationally,” according to a published report. “We can’t judge what transpired in his troubled mind,” the Rev. Lawrence Wetterholm said.

In 1927, anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were cremated at Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston after their execution. Their ashes were later returned to Italy.

Five years after the Cocoanut Grove fire, a 1942 nightclub blaze that killed nearly 500 people, club owner ­Barnett Welansky died and was buried in Woburn.

Cremation would be a neat and easy solution, but Muslims aren't down with that.

Thanks, although I don't find those situations quite the same. What's unique here is that 1) the event is still very fresh, and the perpetrator has not spent time in prison and more importantly 2) the perpetrator is considered a martyr in some circles.
