Bomb Squad Detonates Bags Left Near Boston Marathon Finish Line
April 15, 2014

 
WBZ-TV photographers on scene say they saw a person with the backpack screaming “Boston Strong” before police cleared everyone from the area.
Witnesses say the person was barefoot, wearing a long black veil and was acting strange. Boston Police say one man has been taken into custody.
The Bomb Squad inspected the bag left behind the photo bridge and detonated it just before 9:00 p.m. The second bag was detonated about 40 minutes later.

Person in custody after suspicious bags found at marathon finish line
April 15, 2014

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street.

An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong."

"He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes."

The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back. A bomb squad member yelled "fire in the hole" as they did a detonation. There is no word yet if the backpack had explosives or not, but the backpacks have been "neutralized."

That section of Boylston near Dartmouth Street is closed down. A robot was used to examine one of the bags.

The Boston Fire Department has also sent an engine and ladder company to the scene as a precaution. The MBTA also tweeted out that Green Line trains are bypassing the Copley stop.

Sadly, the alert hit around the same time as the Norden brothers, J.P. and Paul, were completing their team's Hopkinton-to-Boston relay to raise funds for prosthetics. Both brothers lost a leg in last year's attacks at the finish line. Now the double-decker bus they rode in is parked near the area.

 
One bag can be seen just under the photo bridge about 30 feet after the historic finish line of the Boston Marathon. The stands are already set up in preparation for Monday's 118th running of the race

Tsarnaev Can View Victim Autopsy Photos: Judge
April 16, 2014

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the bomb attack on the Boston Marathon, will be allowed to see autopsy photos of the victims.

The judge, George O’Toole of U.S. District Court in Boston, rejected a claim by the government that Tsarnaev should not see the photos because it would disturb the families of the victims.

The ruling came a year and a day after two bomb blasts killed three people and injured 264 near the marathon finish line. A police officer was killed in the ensuing manhunt.

Under court rules, lawyers for Tsarnaev are allowed to see the photos as they prepare a defense. The goverment sought a special restriction — that Tsarnaev himself not be allowed to see them unless the government offered them as evidence at trial.

The government argued in court papers that allowing Tsarnaev to see all the photos would subject marathon victims to “needless harm and suffering.”

The defense lawyers said they had never heard of such a restriction, and that decisions about what Tsarnaev can and can’t see are best left to his lawyers.

Tsarnaev was not in court for the hearing.

The judge also rejected a defense request to dismiss some of the criminal counts against Tsarnaev because they were duplicative and might prejudice the jury against him.


Tsarnaev, 20, goes on trial in November and could face the death penalty if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty to 30 criminal counts.
 

The next hearing for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is June 18.

Judge Weighs Looser Restrictions on Alleged Boston Bomber
April 16, 2014


BOSTON--A federal judge indicated Wednesday he may loosen oversight of prison meetings between accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older sisters, which the defense said are key to understanding family dynamics.

Prosecutors allege Mr. Tsarnaev, now 20, planted two bombs at the marathon finish line a year ago with his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died days later in a firefight with police. The surviving brother, who has pleaded not guilty to all charges, has been held in a federal prison hospital outside Boston under tight restrictions, including a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent present when he has met with his two sisters.

"If the government's indictment is true, this is about family," said David Bruck, one of Mr. Tsarnaev's attorneys, speaking during a federal court hearing. "It is our job to plumb that," with a defense investigator on hand to observe visits, he added.

The defense, which has sought to loosen restrictions on Mr. Tsarnaev's confinement, has suggested he was influenced by his domineering, older brother.

Mr. Bruck argued that monitoring by an FBI agent connected to the prosecution could raise "ammunition" for a potential penalty phase in the case. Mr. Tsarnaev could face the death penalty if convicted.

Prosecutors have disagreed with loosening the restrictions on the family visits, for security reasons, while claiming the defense is responding to an occasion in which the suspect made a statement to his own detriment--which they haven't spelled out--overheard by an FBI agent. Mr. Bruck denied his client made such a statement.

Judge George A. O'Toole didn't rule on the matter Wednesday, but said "I don't think the safety, security issue looms very large." He suggested potentially lifting the monitoring or having federal agents on hand who aren't part of the prosecution team. He gave prosecutors more time to weigh in before he issues a final order on the matter.
 
A still-tense atmosphere was on display Tuesday night, when Boston police performed a controlled detonation on two unattended bags at the already set-up finish line for this year's marathon, which will take place Monday. One bag was allegedly dropped there by a local man who was arrested on site and arraigned Wednesday, while the other was left by a television news crew when the area was evacuated.

The local man, Kevin Edson, was arrested on several charges, including possession of a hoax device and making a false bomb threat, according to the local district attorney's office. He is being held on $100,000 cash bail and was sent to a state hospital for a mental-health evaluation, the office said. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Image Shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Last Message Before Arrest
April 17, 2014


A new image shows the bullet-riddled anti-American rant allegedly scrawled by suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the inside wall of a boat as he hid from a police manhunt last year.

“The U.S. government is killing our innocent civilians, but most of you already know that… I can’t stand to see such [bullet hole] go unpunished,” says the handwriting captured in the image obtained by ABC News from a law enforcement official in Massachusetts. “We Muslims are one body. You kill one of us, you hurt [bullet hole] us all.”

Two state and two federal law enforcement officials confirmed the authenticity of the image.

Along with bullet holes that interrupt Tsarnaev’s message, the image shows drips of red liquid on the wall, which could be paint or, officials said, blood. Dzhokhar had been injured in a firefight with police hours before – the same firefight that took the life of his older brother and alleged co-conspirator Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

ABC News has previously reported Tsarnaev wrote an anti-American message on the boat, called the Slip Away II, in which he hid during the massive manhunt last April. Law enforcement sources previously said that the message also included the phrase “F*** America”. That portion of the message was not included in the image obtained by ABC News. This week law enforcement sources said Dzhokhar also lamented elsewhere in the note that his brother was able to meet Allah first.

Memorial held for policeman slain after Boston Marathon bombing
April 18, 2014

Reuters) - More than 1,600 people gathered at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Friday for a memorial service for a popular campus police officer shot to death a year ago in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.

MIT police officer Sean Collier, 27, was shot multiple times in his car in an apparent confrontation with the bombing suspects days after the blast, which left three people dead and more than 260 injured when two homemade bombs exploded near the race's finish line. Collier was killed in an unsuccessful attempt to steal his gun, authorities said.

Police officers, government officials, students and faculty joined members of Collier's family at the outdoor service under a tent a short distance from where Collier was killed, a place marked by a temporary memorial planted with flowers.
 
Ruiz unveiled plans for a permanent memorial modeled after an open hand, with five radial walls, expected to be completed next year. Cambridge Mayor David Maher said during the service that a nearby street corner would be named "Sean Collier Square."

Judge: Three friends of Boston bombing suspect to be tried separately
May 13, 2014

Three friends of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be tried separately, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday, while rejecting a defense bid to move the proceedings out of Massachusetts.

U.S. District Judge Douglas P. Woodlock in Boston ruled on a variety of motions filed on behalf of Azamat Tazhayakov, Dias Kadyrbayev, and Robel Phillipos.

Tazhayakaov, Kadyrbayev and Phillipos will be tried on June 30, Sept. 8, and Sept. 29, respectively, Christina Sterling, a spokeswoman for U.S. Atty. Carmen Ortiz in Boston, told the Los Angeles Times.
Woodlock rejected arguments by the defense that the none of the trio could receive a fair trial in Massachusetts because of the heightened emotions caused by last year's Boston Marathon bombings. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the two blasts near the race's finish line. An MIT police officer was killed in the manhunt for suspects that followed the attack.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is being held in near-total lockdown, faces federal charges that could lead to the death penalty if he is convicted of his alleged role in the attack. His brother, Tamerlan, died during the manhunt.

FBI: Pals of marathon suspect had to be questioned
May 14, 2014

OSTON (AP) — An FBI agent says that two friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) would have been arrested if they did not come to a police station voluntarily.

Special Agent John Walker testified in federal court on Wednesday that Dias Kadyrbayev (DY'-us kah-dur-BY'-ehv) and Azamat Tazhayakov (AZ'-maht tuh-ZAY'-uh-kahv) were brought in for questioning willingly four days after the attack. Both were held in handcuffs.

Walker said that the two men had to be questioned because they might know the whereabouts of a dangerous fugitive. He also added that they were Kazakhstan nationals in the U.S. illegally.

Kadyrbayev's attorney says his client was not interrogated willingly. He wants Kadyrbayev's testimony kept out of his upcoming trial.

Kadyrbayev is charged with tampering with evidence for removing Tsarnaev's laptop and a backpack from his dorm room

Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Sent Joking Texts to Friend
May 15, 2014

Text messages show Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev joking with a friend not to text him hours after the FBI released Tsarnaev's photo as a suspect in the deadly attack.

Dias Kadyrbayev texted Tsarnaev shortly after the FBI publicly released photos of Tsarnaev and his brother as suspects in the deadly 2013 attack.

Tsarnaev responded that he had seen the news, then texted, "Better not text me my friend," then "Lol."

In another text, Tsarnaev told Kadyrbayev he could go to his room and "take what's there" followed by a smiley face.
Some of the messages had been released previously, but a complete transcript of Kadyrbayev's text messages in the days after the bombing was released by prosecutors Thursday.

Kadyrbayev and another friend, Azamat Tazhayakov, are accused of removing a backpack containing fireworks and a laptop from Tsarnaev's dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth several days after the bombings. A third friend, Robel Phillipos, is accused of lying to investigators.

None of the men are accused of participating in the bombing or knowing about it ahead of time.

Tazhayakov and Phillipos declined to testify this week during a hearing over statements they made under questioning by federal agents. U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Woodlock said Thursday he would not throw out their statements.

Kadyrbayev had been expected to testify Friday, but Woodlock said that will be postponed until after testimony from an expert witness.

The judge did not rule on Kadyrbayev's request to suppress statements he made to investigators; his suppression hearing is expected to resume in two weeks.

Prosecutors and the men's attorneys are arguing over whether the statements were voluntary and can be used as evidence in the upcoming trials. Prosecutors have said the men willingly spoke to federal agents after being told of their right to remain silent and to contact a lawyer. Kadyrbayev's lawyer, Robert Stahl, has argued that his client, who is from Kazakhstan, did not have a complete command of the English language and did not fully understand the waiver forms he signed.

Boston Marathon bombings suspects used fuses made from Christmas lights, feds say
May 22, 2014

The Boston Marathon bombing suspects used "relatively sophisticated" bombs with fuses made from Christmas lights and remote-control detonators made from model car parts, federal prosecutors said in court documents filed Wednesday.

Prosecutors also said that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev used fine black powder from firecrackers as fuel for the bombs and, since none was found in searches of their homes and cars, investigators worried they had help.

The prosecutors were arguing against a defense motion to throw out Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's statements to FBI agents because he was questioned without a lawyer.

"In light of the history of coordinated terrorist attacks (and planned attacks) such as the ones in Mumbai, India, Times Square, the New York subway system, and on September 11, the FBI had a duty to be investigate whether any additional attacks were imminent," the filing said. "Interviewing Tsarnaev as soon as possible was therefore essential to protect the public from possible harm."

Prosecutors say the bombs, comments Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, made to a carjacking victim that they might explode more bombs in New York and a note Tsarnaev wrote in a boat where he was captured made it imperative to know if there was a continuing terror threat before informing him of his rights, an allowed exception.

They say Tsarnaev said he and his brother acted alone and there were no more bombs.
 


I wonder if the bombs were assembled elsewhere?

Two friends of Boston bomber plead not guilty to cover-up charges
September 13, 2103

(Reuters) - Two college friends of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges that they helped cover his tracks when the FBI was trying to find the people responsible for the April 15 attack.

The appearance in federal court in Boston of a third man charged in the same case was postponed until later on Friday. All three are charged with going to Tsarnaev's dorm room three days after the bombing, where they removed a laptop and a backpack containing empty fireworks shells after receiving a text message from him telling them to "go to my room and take what's there," according to court papers.

Boston Bomb Suspect’s Friends Plead Not Guilty in Case
Aughust 13, 2013
 
Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, citizens of Kazakhstan who attended the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth with Dzhokhar, saw the images online and recognized their friend, prosecutors said. They went to Tsarnaev’s dormitory, removed his laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks and a jar of Vaseline and brought the items to their apartment in New Bedford, Massachusetts, according to the indictment.
Trash Bin
The backpack was placed in a garbage bag and put in a trash bin, according to the prosecutors. The Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered it from a landfill about a week later.
One of the suspects told the other that Tsarnaev had used the Vaseline to make bombs, according to the indictment. Also, the suspects saw that the fireworks had been opened and emptied of powder, according to court records.

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

Boston Bomber Tsarnaev's Boat Note: 'We Muslims Are One Body'
May 22, 2014

Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote a note declaring “we Muslims are one body” as he emerged from the boat where he had hidden from investigators, according to a report based on court documents.

The accused bomber wrote about his dead brother, Tamerlan, NBC News affiliate in Boston WHDH reported.

"I do not mourn because his soul is very much alive. God has a plan for each person. Mine was to hide in this boat and shed some light on our actions,” Tsarnaev wrote in the note, according to WHDH.
 

The court documents cited by WHDH were filed Wednesday by prosecutors opposing a motion from the Tsarnaev’s lawyers to suppress statements he made at the time of his arrest, claiming he had made them under duress.

During those interviews, court documents allege, Tsarnaev "readily admitted involvement" in the bombings and remained "responsive, coherent, and clearheaded" throughout the questioning.

The documents confirm an exclusive report last year by NBC News that federal prosecutors believe Tsarnaev and Tamerlan closely followed a bombmaking process detailed in the digital al Qaeda magazine “Inspire.”

They also reveal the bombers used powder from crushed fireworks, fuses made from Christmas lights and detonators assembled from model car parts to construct their bombs, prosecutors allege in new court documents.
