BOSTON (PIX11)- New information coming out about the Boston bombing suspects. Their original bombing date wasn’t until this summer.

Police say the Tsarnaev brothers had planned to set off bombs during July 4th celebrations along the Charles River.

But because the bombs they were building came together more quickly than they expected, they moved the date up.

Also it’s been difficult to find a burial spot for Tamerlan Tsarnaev. No cemetery wanted to accept his body because of all bad publicity and the protests.

The elder Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with Boston police. He died from gunshot wounds to his torso and extremities.
