I don't know what "the source" is, so I would take it with a grain of salt.  It's still early in the investigation and the information may or may not be true, and as always, there's probably a lot they aren't, can't or won't tell the public. 

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/23/17877288-search-of-tsarnaevs-phones-computers-finds-no-indication-of-accomplice-source-says?lite
Search of Tsarnaevs' phones, computers finds no indication of accomplice, source says
April 23, 2013

A preliminary examination of the cellphones and computers used by the Tsarnaev brothers has found no indication of an accomplice in the Boston Marathon bombing, according to a U.S. counter-terrorism source briefed on the FBI investigation.
The source stressed that the investigation is ongoing, but bureau officials at this point appear increasingly confident that “nobody else was involved,” said the source.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, learned to build the pressure-cooker bombs over the Internet and were motivated by a desire to defend Islam because of "the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan," said the source, who has received multiple briefings on the probe.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has also told investigators that he and his brother got instructions on building bombs from an online magazine published by al Qaeda, federal law enforcement officials told NBC News.

He told investigators that the brothers read the instructions in Inspire, an online, English-language magazine that terror monitoring groups say al Qaeda began publishing in 2010.
The magazine has twice included articles on building bombs with kitchen pressure cookers — the method investigators say Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, used in the Boston attack.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested Friday after a manhunt that shut down Boston and its suburbs. He was interrogated in a Boston hospital bed, where he is recovering from injuries sustained in shootouts during the hunt. His condition was upgraded Tuesday to fair from serious, federal prosecutors in Massachusetts said.
Federal authorities charged him Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction, which could carry the death penalty. State officials said they expected to charge him in the death of a campus patrol officer as part of the shootout that authorities say the brothers carried out early Friday, NBC affiliate WHDH reported.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told investigators that he and Tamerlan, who was killed after the shootout with police in the Boston suburb of Watertown, were motivated by religious fervor but were not in touch with overseas terrorists or terror groups, officials said.
Several officials familiar with the interrogation of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev described his behavior as cooperative.

A fireworks store in Seabrook, N.H., confirmed Tuesday that the older brother bought two large pyrotechnic kits there Feb. 6.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev bought two “good-size” mortar kits, consisting of tubes and shells, and black powder, said William Weimer, vice president of the store, Phantom. He said Tsarnaev paid $199.99 under a buy-one-get-one-free deal.
Weimer said he had Tsarnaev’s driver’s license on file, and said the FBI was at the store Friday or Saturday.


From his hospital room, the younger brother, in what was officially his first court appearance, communicated mostly by shaking his head. He spoke once, when asked whether he could afford a lawyer. He said, “No.” He was assigned three federal public defenders.
The White House said Monday that Tsarnaev will be tried in civilian court. Some Republicans have called for him to be treated as an enemy combatant, and tried in a military commission.
Tsarnaev, 19, is a naturalized American citizen of Chechen origin. White House press secretary Jay Carney said that American citizens cannot under law be tried in military commissions. He also noted that “hundreds of terrorists” have been convicted and imprisoned since Sept. 11, 2001, under the civilian court system.

Thousands attend slain MIT officer's memorial service
April 24, 2013


CAMBRIDGE, MASS. Vice President Joe Biden has told the parents of slain Massachusetts Institute of Technology police Officer Sean Collier that he hopes they find some solace in their extreme grief through a large memorial service in their son's honor.
Biden told thousands of students, faculty and staff, law enforcement officials from across the nation who had gathered Wednesday to pay respects at Briggs Field on campus that no child should predecease their parents.

School President L. Rafael Reif told those gathered that Collier not only had a job at MIT, but also had a life at MIT.

As many as 10,000 people were expected on campus for the memorial. They had to make their way through tight security, including metal detectors and bomb-sniffing dogs ahead of the service.
 ::snipping2::
Investigators believe that Collier was killed because the two bombing suspects wanted to take his gun, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reported.

Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev only had one real gun and one pellet gun. Investigators believe because the officer's holster had a locking system, they apparently couldn't get the gun out.

Collier was shot in the head execution-style while sitting in his patrol car.

One of the first responders was officer Richard Donohue. A few hours later, he would be seriously wounded in a shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers.

Officials: Boston suspect had no firearm when barrage of bullets hit hiding place
April 24, 2013

(2 pgs)
Although police feared he was heavily armed, the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings had no firearms when he came under a barrage of police gunfire that struck the boat where he was hiding, according to multiple federal law enforcement officials.

Authorities said they were desperate to capture Dzhokhar Tsarnaev so he could be questioned. The FBI, however, declined to discuss what triggered the gunfire.
Other law enforcement officials said the shooting may have been prompted by the chaos of the moment and some action that led the officers present to believe Tsarnaev had fired a weapon or was about to detonate explosives.

These new details emerged as investigators continued their examination of the movements and motives of Tsarnaev, 19, and his brother, Tamerlan, in last week’s coordinated bombing, which killed three people and wounded more than 250.
 ::snipping2::
Law enforcement officials described the 30 minutes before the arrest of Tsarnaev as chaotic. One characterized it as “the fog of war” and said that in a highly charged atmosphere, one accidental shot could have caused what police call “contagious fire.”
 ::snipping2::
The FBI declined to discuss the exact sequence of events that led officers to open fire on Tsarnaev’s hiding place and whether the dozens of bullets that struck the boat caused any of his gunshot wounds.

A spokesman for the FBI said law enforcement agents were tracking an extremely dangerous suspect who had used guns and explosives on a public street to avoid arrest.
 ::snipping2::
In the immediate aftermath of Tsarnaev’s capture, police officials said he had fired from the boat and he was reported to have been captured with several weapons. There were also reports that the gunshot wound he suffered to the throat might have been an attempt to kill himself as police moved in.

Tsarnaev continues to be treated in a Boston hospital, where his condition has been upgraded from critical to fair. He began communicating in writing and some speech with a special team of FBI interrogators Saturday night and was officially charged Monday.

Neil Diamond donating sales of ‘Sweet Caroline’ to Boston victims after bombings
April 24, 2013

NEW YORK — Neil Diamond is donating some of this week’s sales from “Sweet Caroline” after the tune became a source of comfort following the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

Sales from Diamond’s song are up by 597 percent, Nielsen SoundScan said Wednesday. Diamond’s representative said the singer will donate the recent sales to marathon bombing victims.
 ::snipping2::

The crowd-pleasing song is a staple of Boston Red Sox games. It makes no specific mention of Boston or the Red Sox, but the team started playing it regularly at Fenway Park more than a decade ago and fans took to it.

The New York Yankees, Toronto Raptors and other professional sports teams also have played the song at games in the days after the deadly blasts April 15.

Neil Diamond to donate 'Sweet Caroline' royalties to One Fund Boston
April 25, 2013

(CNN) -- Neil Diamond will donate royalties from his song "Sweet Caroline," which has been played at every Boston Red Sox home game for more than a decade, to the One Fund Boston, the singer said on Twitter on Wednesday.
The song was downloaded more than 19,000 times this week, with sales up 597%, Nielsen SoundScan said.
Diamond told Rolling Stone earlier this week that he will write a song about the bombings and other tragedies.
 ::snipping2::
Diamond was at Fenway Park on Saturday to lead the crowd in what has become a stadium tradition of singing the tune during the break in the eighth inning before the Sox come to bat.
"What an honor it is for me to be here today. I bring love from the whole country," he told the Sox faithful.
 ::snipping2::
The fund has raised more than $23 million as of Wednesday. The fund was formed to "help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013," the website says.

Suspects' mother says bombing was staged with paint instead of blood
April 25, 2013

CNN) -- The mother of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing says she believes the tragedy that killed three people and injured dozens more was staged, that the bombing was fake.
"That's what I want to know, because everybody's talking about it -- that this is a show, that's what I want to know. That's what I want to understand," said Zubeidat Tsarnaev.
She has seen a video pushing the wild idea, she told CNN's Nick Paton Walsh, who interviewed her in Makhachkala, Dagestan. He asked if she has seen the news images of the actual bombings and the suffering they caused.
"I haven't," she answered. There was no blood, she said. It was paint. But her disbelief broke down when she spoke of the victims.
"I really feel sorry for all of them. Really feel sorry for all of them," she said, her voice cracking. But she is resolute about not believing that her sons, Dzhokhar, 19, and Tamerlan, 26 were involved.
The elder son was killed after the two allegedly violently resisted and fled police.
Tamerlan's body remains unclaimed. Dzhokhar is hospitalized with severe injuries, and faces terrorism and murder charges.
His mother said at a news conference Thursday that authorities "already told us they will not let us see Dzhokhar."
 ::snipping2::
Father traveling to U.S.
Her husband, Anzor Tsarnaev, is expected to step off a flight in the United States in the coming days after a long journey from Dagestan. He told reporters he may leave Thursday for the United States.
He has vowed to cooperate in the bombing investigation.
Zubeidat Tsarnaev is not coming with him.
She's wanted on 2012 felony charges of shoplifting and property damage in Massachusetts, according to court officials.
The family lived there before she jumped bail, and they moved the same year to Dagestan, a semiautonomous region of Russia, officials said.
Anzor Tsarnaev may be bringing along important information for the investigation into the April 15 marathon bombings.
He is to depart for the United States as soon as Friday, human rights activist Kheda Saratova told CNN. Saratova is serving as the parents' representative.

Yes, and that information came only after being questioned for some time. At first, he said they were going to New York just to party. So much for any other information that may have come out had the FBI been allowed to continue to question him.

Boston Marathon bombing suspect out of hospital
April 26, 2013

BOSTON (AP) - The surviving Boston Marathon bombings suspect has been released from a civilian hospital and transferred to a federal medical detention center in central Massachusetts.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center overnight and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens about 40 miles west of Boston.

The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care.

The 19-year-old Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered during his attempted getaway.

Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev taken from hospital to prison
April 26, 2013

BOSTON Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev was moved from a hospital to a federal prison medical center, while FBI agents searched for evidence Friday in a landfill near the college he was attending.

Tsarnaev, 19, was taken from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered during a getaway attempt, and transferred to the Federal Medical Center Devens, about 40 miles from Boston, the U.S. Marshals Service said. The facility at a former Army base treats federal prisoners.
 ::snipping2::

 ::snipping2::
On Thursday, New York officials said Tsarnaev and his older brother and fellow suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev planned to attack Times Square.

"The surviving attacker revealed that New York City was next on their list of targets," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "He told the FBI, apparently, that he and his brother had intended to drive to New York and designate additional explosives in Times Square."

Also, FBI agents picked through a landfill near the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Tsarnaev was a sophomore. FBI spokesman Jim Martin would not say what investigators were looking for. An aerial photo in Friday's Boston Globe showed a line of more than 20 investigators, all dressed in white overalls and yellow boots, picking over the garbage with shovels or rakes.

"They're searching for a laptop," Miller said on "CBS This Morning" Friday, "but they're also searching for anything else that would have gone out in that same trash, and that could be bomb-making components and other things. The laptop, though, if they find it, would be what they're hoping to have as a treasure trove because it would show online places, email contacts and so on. Now, they can still get some of that off the servers from the providers.

Details clarified or learned this week in the investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing
April 26, 2013

As the Boston Marathon bombings investigation continues, more information from authorities has emerged that clarifies some earlier reports from officials or provides more details on the suspected bombers, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and their backgrounds:

___

MIT OFFICER:
Officer Sean Collier was shot inside in his patrol car late Thursday, April 18. Authorities initially said he was responding to a disturbance. Police now say there was no disturbance and he was in his parked car when he was shot by one of the bombing suspects.

___

NO ROBBERY ATTEMPT: Officials at first said that the suspects were pursued after they robbed a convenience store, where the younger one was seen on a surveillance camera. Authorities later corrected their statement to say the suspects were tracked down after they needed to stop for gas and a driver they had carjacked fled and called police.

___

GUN BATTLE: Federal officials say only one gun was recovered at the scene of a shootout with the suspects early April 20, when more than 250 rounds were fired, according to Police Commissioner Ed Davis. The elder suspect died after that exchange of gunfire, though his exact cause of death is still not known. A federal law enforcement official confirmed his brother ran over his body as he fled the scene in a car.

___

FOUND IN BOAT: Federal authorities now say the suspect was found unarmed in a boat in a backyard in Watertown, raising the question of how or why authorities started shooting. Rounds of ammunition could be heard firing by the hundreds who gathered nearby.

___

YOUNGER BROTHER: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could face the death penalty after being charged with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill people and destroy property. Federal authorities say he shared information with interrogators until being read his constitutional rights.

___

OLDER BROTHER: Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother, Zubeidat, were added to the U.S. database of suspected terrorists 18 months before the Boston explosions, two officials briefed on the situation told The Associated Press.

___

NEXT TARGET: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly say the brothers had five pipe bombs and another pressure cooker and were heading to New York City when the man they had carjacked escaped and called police to give chase.

Brother Of Injured Officer Richard Donohue Calls Toucher & Rich: ‘He’s Doing Absolutely Awesome’
April 26, 2013

BOSTON (CBS) – The brother of Richard Donohue called in to 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich on Friday morning, saying the MBTA officer is recovering well after he was nearly killed in a violent shootout with the suspected Boston Marathon bombers last week.
 ::snipping2::
Ed said his brother is talking and mentally alert, but has a long road to recovery. While he is suffering from some short-term memory loss, his brother says Donahue’s sense of humor has come back and he is in good spirits.

“He’s so happy to be awake, have family (by his side),” said Ed. “He got to see the Watertown guys that were on scene and the EMTs; you can see a little tear come to his eyes when he gets to see those guys because they definitely saved his life Friday morning.”

Boston bombing suspects' mom in terror database
By EILEEN SULLIVAN and JULIE PACE | Associated Press – 17 hrs ago


WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. intelligence agencies added the mother of the Boston bombing suspects to a government terrorism database 18 months before the bombings, two officials told The Associated Press. She called it "lies and hypocrisy" and said she has never been linked to crimes or terrorism.
The CIA asked for the Boston terror suspect and his mother to be added to a terrorist database in the fall of 2011, after the Russian government contacted the agency with concerns that both had become religious militants, according to officials briefed on the investigation. About six months earlier, the FBI investigated Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, also at Russia's request, one of the officials said. The FBI found no ties to terrorism.
The revelation that the FBI had also investigated Tsarnaeva and the CIA arranged for her to be added to the terrorism database deepened the mystery around the family. The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens from southern Russia who immigrated to the Boston area in the past 11 years. Tsarnaeva, a naturalized U.S. citizen who has appeared on television interviews since the attacks and reversed her decision to return to the U.S. after the bombings, has said her sons could never have been behind the deadly attacks and believes they were framed. ::snipping2::

Tsarnaeva said it would not surprise her if she was listed in a U.S. terror database.
"It's all lies and hypocrisy," she told the AP from Dagestan. "I'm sick and tired of all this nonsense that they make up about me and my children. People know me as a regular person, and I've never been mixed up in any criminal intentions, especially any linked to terrorism."

‘I’m pissed . . . . but he’s dead and I’m still here’

Legless vic tells of fingering bomber

“He’s dead, and I’m still here.”

A Boston Marathon victim whose legs were blown off in the attack spoke yesterday for the first time about his horrific injuries — and is more focused on his own recovery than the fate of the bombers.

“I’m pissed, obviously,” Jeff Bauman, 27, told the Boston radio show “Dennis & Callahan” on WEEI.

“But . . . it’s in the past, you know. You only look forward,” Bauman said from a rehab center.

“I had a lot to live for before, and I’ve got a lot to live for now.”

The Costco worker was at the marathon finish line on April 15 waiting for runner girlfriend Erin Hurley when he first spotted Tamerlan Tsarnaev skulking around the viewing area.


PROFILE IN COURAGE: Jeff Bauman, who had his legs blown off in the marathon terror attack, wheels around the hospital this week lifting the spirits of other victims.

“I was with my girlfriend’s roommates, and we were having a great time,” Bauman said.

“And just that one guy, he didn’t look like he was having a good time. He was right next to me at that point, and he had a bag, and he had his [sun]glasses. He had kind of like a leather-like sweat-shirt deal, and it was warm out. He was just an odd guy.”

Tsarnaev — who quietly left behind the homemade pressure-cooker bomb filled with metal projectiles — “just didn’t seem right,” Bauman said.

“You know how you size somebody up? I just looked at him. I was, like, ‘What’s this guy’s problem?’ ” he told WEEI.

“Next thing you know, I hear fireworks, and I’m on the ground,” Bauman said. “It was quick — he was there, and then he was gone, and then, ‘Boom!’ ”

Bauman thought he was going to die as he bled profusely on Boylston Street — until cowboy-hat-wearing peace activist Carlos Arredondo came to his rescue.

“I saw him. He was running around helping everybody” injured in the blast.

“And then . . . he helped me,” Bauman said of Arredondo, who was photographed pushing him to safety in a wheelchair. “He was going nuts helping everybody. His adrenaline was definitely, definitely kicking.

APNewsBreak: Russia caught bomb suspect on wiretap
By EILEEN SULLIVAN and MATT APUZZO | Associated Press – 16 hrs ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.
In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.
The conversations are significant because, had they been revealed earlier, they might have been enough evidence for the FBI to initiate a more thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev family.
As it was, Russian authorities told the FBI only that they had concerns that Tamerlan and his mother were religious extremists. With no additional information, the FBI conducted a limited inquiry and closed the case in June 2011.
Two years later, authorities say Tamerlan and his brother, Dzhohkar, detonated two homemade bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. Tamerlan was killed in a police shootout and Dzhohkar is under arrest.
In the past week, Russian authorities turned over to the United States information it had on Tamerlan and his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva. The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens who emigrated from southern Russia to the Boston area over the past 11 years.
Even had the FBI received the information from the Russian wiretaps earlier, it's not clear that the government could have prevented the attack.
In early 2011, the Russian FSB internal security service intercepted a conversation between Tamerlan and his mother vaguely discussing jihad, according to U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation with reporters.
The two discussed the possibility of Tamerlan going to Palestine, but he told his mother he didn't speak the language there, according to the officials, who reviewed the information Russia shared with the U.S.
In a second call, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva spoke with a man in the Caucasus region of Russia who was under FBI investigation. Jacqueline Maguire, a spokeswoman for the FBI's Washington Field Office, where that investigation was based, declined to comment.
There was no information in the conversation that suggested a plot inside the United States, officials said. ::snipping2::
