Boston bombing: Mysterious 'Misha' turns up in Rhode Island
For days since the Boston Marathon bombings, people have been searching for the mysterious “Misha,” the friend with the thin red beard who supposedly tutored bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the ways of more pious Islam.

Also hot on his trail was the FBI, which wondered whether “Misha,” described by Tsarnaev family members as an Armenian who converted to Islam, could have known something about Tsarnaev and his brother’s alleged plans to plant homemade bombs at the marathon finish line on April 15.

It appears the mystery is over — solved by no less a heavyweight news organization than the New York Review of Books.

Acting on a tip from someone who knows the Tsarnaevs, writer Christian Caryl traveled to Rhode Island to interview the man: Mikhail Allakhverdov, 39, who is of Armenian-Ukrainian descent.

The FBI had beaten him to to it, having reportedly already interviewed  the man described in news accounts all over the world.

“I wasn’t his teacher. If I had been his teacher, I would have made sure he never did anything like this,” Allakhverdov told Caryl, who wrote a blog post for the book review. ::snipping2::

Female DNA found on bomb components in Boston Marathon probe, source says
Published April 29, 2013
FoxNews.com
Female DNA was found on bomb components used in the attack this month on the Boston Marathon, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed to Fox News, though the source cautioned that it is too early to draw hard conclusions from that evidence.
"No one should expect that the investigation is over," the source told Fox News in confirming the development first reported by the Wall Street Journal, adding that it is just one piece of evidence that investigators are looking at.
The revelation about female DNA came on the same day that the FBI went inside the Rhode Island home of bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev's widow's parents, and the nearby family of a man identified as his mysterious mentor hired a family spokesman to keep the media at bay. ::snipping2::

Russell has not been named as a suspect in the April 15 bombing. A home health aide, she reportedly worked up to 80 hours per week and did not know her radical Muslim husband's plans to carry out a terror plot. The widow has kept a low profile since the attack, and is believed to have been living with her parents in West Kingston, R.I., since her husband was exposed as a terrorist and then killed in a police shootou ::snipping2::

Three additional people arrested in Boston Marathon bombings
05/01/2013 11:42 AM
By John R. Ellement and Martin Finucane, Globe Staff


Three college students have been arrested by federal authorities in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings, a law enforcement official familar with the case said this morning.

The Boston police Web page said that three additional “suspects” had been taken into custody. It emphasized that there was no threat to public safety.

The three people were connected to Dzokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the surviving bomb suspect, at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Tsarnaev was a student. They allegedly helped him after the bombing, a different source told the Globe.

“Additional details will be provided when they become available,” police said in a statement. No news conference was scheduled.

Funeral Home Director: No One Will Bury Body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev
May 4, 2013

Cemeteries across the Northeast are refusing to bury the body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev as his official cause of the death was released.

Authorities determined Tsarnaev died of gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to the head and torso after he was run over by his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarvaev, following a firefight with police.

Peter Stefan, a funeral home director in Worcester, Mass., told "Good Morning America" that he has already looked for plots in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts to bury Tsarnaev, but has had no luck.

"Is he a terrorist? Sure he is a terrorist, but I can't control what he did. But the person is dead, and burying a dead body, that's all it is," Stefan said.
 
While ABC News has learned that the female DNA found on one of the bombs did not match Russell's the FBI is looking into what her husband may have said to her in a phone call just days after the bombings.
 
In addition, the father of Azamat Ismagulov, one Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's friends arrested and charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice for taking his laptop and allegedly trying to dump a backpack full of fireworks, told ABC News he could not believe his son was implicated in the crimes.

Motion: Release man accused of lying after blasts
May 6, 2013

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — The defense and the government have filed a joint court motion that asks a judge to release one of the friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) from federal custody while awaiting trial.

Robel Phillipos is scheduled to have a probable cause and detention hearing Monday after his arrest last week on charges of lying to investigators looking into the Boston Marathon bombings.
 
Authorities say he lied to investigators about visiting Tsarnaev's dorm room three days after the bombings.

The parties say in the court motion that they agree to home confinement and monitoring with an electronic bracelet, along with a $100,000 bond.

A magistrate judge is expected to consider the request during the afternoon hearing.

Body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Marathon bombing suspect, is laid to rest outside Massachusetts
May 9, 2013

WORCESTER — The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been laid to rest somewhere outside Massachusetts, according to a funeral home official briefed on the situation. Worcester police said the remains of the 26-year-old have been “entombed.’’

Tsarnaev’s remains were removed sometime before midnight Wednesday from the Graham Putnam & ­Mahoney Funeral Parlors where his body has been since last Friday, the official said.

The burial location was approved by Ruslan Tsarni, Tsarnaev’s uncle, who has represented the family as he and funeral home director Peter Stefan tried to find a cemetery willing to accept the remains, the official said.

Worcester police confirmed in a statement that Tsarnaev had been entombed, but did not disclose the location.
 
Stefan’s funeral home has been surrounded by media, protesters, and Worcester police, whose chief, Gary J. Gemme, on Wednesday publicly appealed for someone to step forward and end the controversy that had cost his department some $30,000 in extra expenses.

‘‘We are not barbarians; we bury the dead,” Gemme said Thursday.

Stefan, the funeral home director, has conducted dozens of interviews over the past several days. But today, he declared he was not talking to anyone, prompting reporters to cluster together on the front steps of the building in hopes of hearing from him in some fashion.

After publicly announcing that the terror suspect’s body had been moved from the city, police removed the barricades they had installed around the funeral home on Main Street today.
 
Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow, Katherine Russell, waived her right to decide where the father of her child should be buried, handing off that responsibility to Tsarni, a Maryland resident who completed the Muslim burial rites on his nephew and then worked with Stefan to find the burial location.

The body was first released by the state medical examiner last Thursday and first was taken to a funeral home in North Attleborough before being taken to Worcester Friday.

Sister of Boston boy killed in bombing has 11th surgery
May 9, 2013

Jane Richard lost part of left leg in blast that killed her 8-year-old brother, Martin.

Jane Richard, the wounded 7-year-old sister of the boy killed in the Boston Marathon bombings, had a crucial 11th surgery Wednesday night but faces more operations to prepare her for an artificial leg, the family said Thursday.

Doctors at Boston Children's Hospital finally closed the wound where one bomb tore off her left leg below the knee April 15, the Richard family wrote on its Tumblr page. She will eventually be fitted with a prosthesis.

Jane, her mother and her father were among the more than 260 people wounded in the attack, which killed 8-year-old Martin Richard and two others as they all watched near the finish line in Copley Square.

"After not being able to communicate with Jane for the first two weeks, she woke up with difficult questions that needed to be answered," the statement said. "There are not words to describe how hard sharing this heartbreaking news was on all of us."

In addition to the surgeries, Jane has also fought off infections and other complications.

"One of the things we have learned through all of this is to not get too high or too low. We take today's development as positive news and look ahead with guarded optimism.

"If things go well, Jane could be ready to transition to the rehabilitation stage of her recovery in the next few weeks," the family said.

'Mounting Evidence' Boston Bombers Involved in 2011 Triple Murder
May 10, 2013

(2 pgs)
Massachusetts investigators have developed what they call "mounting evidence," bolstered by "forensic hits," that point to the possible involvement of both Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokhar in a gruesome, unsolved triple homicide in 2011, law enforcement officials told ABC News.

The officials cautioned that until more definitive DNA testing is complete, it is still too early to consider bringing an indictment against the younger of the two brothers, who officials said has admitted his role in the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured 260 more on April 15. Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police days after the Marathon bombing attack, but Dhzokhar survived and was captured.
 
In the wake of the Marathon bombings, Middlesex County began to probe a link between the elder Tsarnaev and Brendan Mess, one of the three men killed in the gruesome slaying on Sept. 11, 2011. Officials said Mess and two men were found in a Waltham residence with their throats slit and their bodies covered with marijuana. Tamerlan and Mess were once roommates and did boxing and martial arts training together.

Now law enforcement officials tell ABC News that some crime scene forensic evidence provided a match to the two Tsarnaev brothers. The officials also said records of cell phones used by the Tsarnaevs appears to put them in the area of the murders on that date. Several officials confirmed the new findings but declined to be identified because they are not authorized to comment on the ongoing investigation.
 
The savage 2011 murders unfolded on a quiet dead-end street on a balmy night.

Mess and his friends, Erik Weissman, 31, and Raphael Teken, 37, had ordered dinner from Gerry's Italian Kitchen at 8:54 p.m., but when a delivery woman arrived twenty minutes later there was no answer at the door and no one answered a call to Weissman's cell phone, from which the order was placed.

The bodies were discovered the next day. Former Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said at the time that the murders were "graphic." Other investigators called it perplexing.

Roughly seven pounds of marijuana was dumped on the bodies and $5,000 in cash was left behind. Neighbors said they did not hear any signs of trouble – even with open windows – and there was no forced entry. In a 2011 interview, Leone said investigators theorized there had been more than one person at the scene of the murders based on "many factors," but no suspects were identified.

From there the case went cold, until photos of the Boston Marathon suspects were released and family and friends of the Waltham victims recognized them and remembered Tamerlan's strange behavior after the murders. He did not attend his friend's funeral and vanished from the martial arts gyms where the men had sparred together.

Then, Gerry's Italian Kitchen became a focal point again on April 24, nine days after the Marathon bombing, after investigators removed two Planet Aid charity donation bins from a parking lot it shares with a neighboring grocer. A driver had discovered discarded fireworks inside and law enforcement sources told ABC News the gunpowder had been removed from the cartridges.

It is unclear how the Tsarnaev brothers were associated with Gerry's Italian Kitchen, if at all, but looking back, multiple residents of Waltham and Watertown remember Tamerlan Tsarnaev delivering food to their homes and Tsarnaev family members have told reporters the brothers worked as pizza deliverymen. The eatery's management, however, steadfastly denied that either Tsarnaev brother worked there.

Scott Wood, a jiu jitsui trainer who befriended and trained Mess at a martial arts studio in Vermont, said he always believed whoever the killer or killers were, they got in Mess' home "under the guise of being a friend."

"Brendan was a tough, tough kid, a strong kid. It wouldn't have been easy to take him out like that," Wood told ABC News.
 
As detectives probe the Waltham connections, Middlesex County prosecutors are also busy building a case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in connection with the cold-blooded killing of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier after the Marathon bombings.

Collier was shot five times, allegedly by the Tsarnaev brothers, as he sat in his cruiser, just days before he would have become a Somerville Police Officer. Collier's murder will be prosecuted by state prosecutors while the Marathon bombing will be tried in federal court.

Collier's murder was followed by a carjacking that spawned a wild, high-speed chase that ended with bombs exploding and bullets flying on a street corner in Watertown. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital later that night. His brother escaped but was found badly wounded in a Watertown man's boat blocks from the gun battle the following evening.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being held in the infirmary at Fort Devens federal prison.

UMass to award Boston Marathon bombing victim posthumous degree
May 13, 2013

MyFoxBoston.com) – Boston Marathon bombing victim Krystle Campbell will be awarded a posthumous degree from UMass on May 31 in an ongoing effort to honor those injured and killed during the April 15 attacks, the university announced Monday.

Campbell, a former sociology student at UMass Boston, will be awarded the posthumous bachelor of art degree at UMass Boston's undergraduate commencement.

"Our community experienced a tremendous loss during the Boston Marathon attack," said J. Keith Motley, chancellor at UMass Boston. "Krystle was a wonderful part of our campus community and we wanted to recognize her contributions and impact through the awarding of this posthumous degree. She was a great student and friend to many, and she will be greatly missed."

UMass is holding a moment of silence during commencement on each of its five campuses in memory of the four victims killed and in an expression of support for all those who were injured and impacted that day.

Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left note in boat he hid in, sources say
May 16, 2013

(CBS News) Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left claiming responsibility for the April 13 attack on the Boston Marathon, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

Sources tell Miller that Tsarnaev wrote the note in the boat he was hiding in as police pursued him, and as he bled from gunshot wounds sustained in an earlier shootout between police and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The note, scrawled with a pen on the interior wall of the cabin, said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, and called the Boston victims collateral damage in the same way Muslims have been in the American-led wars. "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," the note added.

Dzhokar said he didn't mourn older brother Tamerlan, the other suspect in the bombings, writing that by that point, Tamerlan was a martyr in paradise -- and that he expected to join him there.

According to Miller, the note will be a significant piece of evidence in any Dzhokar trial -- it is "certainly admissible," and paints a clear picture of the brothers' motive, "consistent with what he told investigators while he was in custody," Miller said Thursday on "CBS This Morning."

Miller explained that while Dzhokar admitted many of the same details to authorities, those admissions came "during the time he was interrogated but before he was given his Miranda warning." The note gives prosecutors supporting, clearly admissible evidence even if there is an fight over whether things he said before he was given his Miranda rights are admissible as evidence.
It took days to learn the identity of the bombers, and there was no official claim of responsibility, which is unusual in these cases. As investigators move forward with the investigation, "the last big question remaining is going to be who else knew anything? Is it going to be the wife? Is it someone overseas?" Miller said.

The suspects didn't plan to stop after the Boston bombings, authorities say. They intended to go to New York City and set off a device or devices in Times Square.

Seasoned defender for Marathon bombing suspect
Clarke a veteran of capital cases

May 20, 2013

The lawyer heading the defense for the alleged Boston Marathon bomber in federal court in Boston is well-versed in capital cases and the long, emotionally charged process that would come if federal prosecutors seek the death penalty, according to legal observers and her own colleagues.

Judy Clarke, a former public defender now working as a private lawyer in San Diego, has been tapped to represent Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old from Cambridge charged in the bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260. Three other public defenders from Boston have also been assigned to the case, including one who speaks Tsarnaev’s native Russian.

Cases involving the death penalty allow for the appointment of an outside lawyer “learned in the law applicable to capital cases,” according to court records, and Clarke has been at the center of some of the most high-profile cases that the country has seen in recent times — cases that often include emotionally charged public calls for the death penalty.
 
Already, the defense team won a request to have photos of Tsarnaev taken to show his state of health after his violent escape and then capture by police, and they could be used as evidence to argue against the death penalty.

Denvir said Clarke is known not only for her experience completing the research and tedious paperwork required of such complex cases, but also for her legal wit. Clarke, very low-key, does not engage the news media. Instead, she is calculating in her cases.

Above all, Denvir and others said, she has the passion of a public defender — to represent clients who are otherwise seen by the public to be monsters: She opposes the death penalty, not only as a lawyer but in her political beliefs.

Clarke most recently defended Jared Loughner, the man behind the Tucson shooting rampage in 2011 that killed six people and injured a dozen others, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, his target.

She defended Theodore John “Ted” Kaczynski, known as the Unabomber, for the nationwide bombing campaign that killed three people. She also represented Atlanta Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph and Susan Smith, the South Carolina woman who murdered her three children.

In each of those cases, the defendants were found guilty, but Clarke helped them escape the death penalty, and it will undoubtedly be her priority as she embarks on the Tsarnaev case, according to legal observers who described an in-depth, complex, and drawn-out process in capital cases.

FBI agent in fatal shooting of suspect in Orlando
May 22, 2013

Updated at 7:46 a.m. ET

(CBS News) The FBI says it was involved in a fatal shooting near Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., early Wednesday.

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former FBI assistant director, reported on "CBS This Morning" that the victim was a friend of the older brother suspected in last month's deadly terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Miller reported that FBI agents went to the apartment of the man, Ibrahim Todashev, after midnight Wednesday morning to question him.

"He had been interviewed along with a number of other people in the apartment complex, but the interest in him was higher because of a couple of factors: He was in contact with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He had been to Boston to visit him, and he was planning a trip to Chechnya," Miller said.

In a statement Wednesday, the FBI said, "We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent. The incident occurred in Orlando Florida. The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased. We do not have any further details at this time. We expect to have more information later this morning."

Orlando man fatally shot by FBI was suspect in 2011 triple slaying in Waltham, along with Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev
05/22/2013 1:00 PM


A Chechen man with ties to Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot and killed by an FBI agent in Orlando while he was being questioned about an unsolved triple homicide in Waltham, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation.

The FBI announced that the person shot and killed early today was Ibragim Todashev, 27.

Two Massachusetts State Police troopers were also participating in questioning “in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation” at the time of the fatal shooting, the FBI said. State Police spokesman David Procopio had no comment.

Todashev was a suspect in the 2011 triple slaying in Waltham, a crime that authorities now suspect may have also been committed by Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the two law enforcement officials said.

The Waltham victims’ throats were slashed and marijuana was sprinkled over their bodies when they were slain on Sept. 11, 2011. The officials said authorities had questioned Todashev about the killings during a series of interviews in recent days. “Both Tsarnaev and Todashev were suspects in the murders,’’ one of the officials said.

Todashev attacked the officers in Florida today with a knife, according to another source with knowledge of the investigation.

Source: Man killed by FBI agent 'directly involved' in murders, knew Tsarnaevs

(CNN) -- Ibragim Todashev, shot dead early Wednesday by the FBI in Florida, was "directly involved" in a 2011 triple homicide in Waltham, Massachusetts, a law enforcement official told CNN Wednesday.
Todashev was fatally shot by an FBI agent during questioning about those homicides and whether he played a role in last month's Boston Marathon bombings.
"During questioning, it became clear that he was involved in the murders," said the official on condition of anonymity.
There was a confrontation between him and police during the questioning, according to a second law enforcement official, which led to the shooting and Todashev's death.

Father of Chechen shot by FBI suspects son was tortured
May 23, 2013

(Reuters) - The father of a Chechen immigrant killed during questioning over his links with one of the Boston Marathon bombings suspects said on Thursday he plans to travel to the United States where he suspects his son was tortured and killed.


Ibragim Todashev, 27, was killed by a federal agent in his apartment complex when he became violent during questioning over his ties to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of two brothers suspected of planting two bombs at the marathon on April 15.

"I suspect that they tortured my son and that he suffered a painful death," said Abdulbaki Todashev, wiping away tears at the home he shares with one of his wives in the mostly Muslim region of Chechnya in Russia's North Caucasus.

"I will try to go to (the United States) and get to the truth," he said as he received neighbors and acquaintances paying their respects to the dead man, the oldest of 12 children between his father's two wives.
