Berezovsky's Burial Place Not Yet Decided

A source close to Boris Berezovksy's family said a decision has not yet been made on where and when the former tycoon will be buried, the BBC's Russian Service reported Wednesday.

The source denied earlier reports that the late oligarch's daughters Yelizaveta and Yekaterina had decided to bury him in the Gunnersbury Cemetery in London and said Berezovsky had earlier expressed the desire to be buried in Israel.

The 67-year-old Russian tycoon was found dead on March 23 in a locked bathroom in his luxury mansion near London with a ligature around his neck and a piece of similar material on the shower rail above him.

The initial postmortem examination revealed a broken rib but no bruising on his body. Police have said they could not rule out foul play, though the results of several different toxicology tests will not be available for several weeks.
