boston marathon suspect


A police photographer, furious with a Rolling Stone magazine cover photo he says glamorises the surviving Boston Marathon suspect, has released gritty images from the day Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured. The photos released to Boston Magazine on Thursday (in August 2013) by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy - who has been relieved of his duties and ordered not to speak to the media as a result - show a downcast, dishevelled Tsarnaev with the red dot of a sniper’s rifle laser sight on his forehead.

Murphy said in a statement to the magazine that Tsarnaev is evil and his photos show the ‘real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.’   

The photos were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a boat in a suburban backyard.
What Happened To Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Wife, Katherine Russell? Update After 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing

Katherine Russell, the widow of slain Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, has been away from the public eye and last surfaced in December 2016. Her lawyer slammed a movie “Patriots Day” for suggesting that Russell had foreknowledge of the bombing carried out by Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Russell was questioned after the Boston bombing, which killed three people and injured several hundred more. She has never been charged with any wrongdoing linked to the bombing. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, along with his brother, Dzhokhar, planted a pair of pressure cooker bombs at the marathon’s finish line in Copley Square on April 15, 2013. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police after a manhunt was launched for the suspects of the bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was taken into custody during the manhunt, is incarcerated at the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado, waiting for the death sentence handed down.

Following the bombing and the manhunt, the focus of the investigation moved to Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife, who police believed might have been aware of her husband’s plans. Russell now lives a free life as police could not find any evidence linking her to the bombing. Russell is the daughter of an emergency room doctor and grew up in a Christian household in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. In September 2016, People magazine reported that Russell was living in her childhood home with her daughter.

In September 2016, Russell released a statement through her lawyers as federal authorities wanted to question her about her husband’s activities.

“The injuries and loss of life – to people who came to celebrate a race and a holiday – has caused profound distress and sorrow to Katie and her family. The reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all,” the statement read.

A source close to Russell’s family told People magazine at the time: “She has spent a lot of time crying. As far as I know, Katie wasn’t aware of what he was up to. She stopped seeing a lot of her friends and cut them off. She became very withdrawn and quiet. That took away a lot of what we knew of her.”

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was tried on 30 charges, including murder and using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death, in federal court. He was convicted of all counts on April 8, 2015.

Last week, the FBI released notes on a 2011 interview with Tamerlan Tsarnaev during which he denied being part of any violence and instead expressed his interest of becoming a professional boxer.

“Tamerlan doesn’t like to fight for the sake of violence,” the report stated. “Tamerlan has fought to protect others. Tamerlan was in several fights as a child in school in Kyrgyzstan. Tamerlan stood up for kids that were being bullied by others.” The report also said that he claimed to have never searched for “extremist Islamic material” online.

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.”
Things to not dress up as this halloween:
  • ISIS (people are doing this, don’t)
  • Ebola (people are also really doing this, again don’t)
  • Any sort of legitimate tragedy (do not be that girl that dressed as a Boston Marathon bombing victim)
  • Sexy Indian princesses
  • Geisha
  • Mexican sombrero dude
  • Blackface
  • basically anything racially or culturally insensitive. if you have to think about it, don’t do it

Seriously, have fun without being an asshole.

One of the WANTED posters of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev released during the man hunt that ensued after the Boston Marathon Bombing incident on April 15, 2013. He was classified as ‘Suspect #2′. The bombing killed three people and injured two-hundred and sixty-four others.
