After Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with the police, he left behind a precious 3-year-old daughter. The bombing suspect’s daughter was photographed out for the first time since the terrorist attacks. Click to see pics of Tamerlan’s daughter.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, allegedly planted two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, injuring over 180 people and killing three. Before the attacks, Tamerlan lived a seemingly normal life with his wife, Katherine Russell, 25, and their 3-year-old daughter, Zahara.

Katherine Russell Believed There Was ‘No Way Out’ Of Her Marriage
Zahara’s mother, Katherine, converted to Islam to marry Tamerlan. While married to Tamerlan, Katherine suffered emotional abuse and was terrified of her husband. Dr. Gilda Carle, the 30 second therapist from the Today Show, exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com that Katherine never left her abusive husband because she was too afraid.
I treat many women who give up their personal power and their souls for what they consider to be “love.” They totally dismantle their sense of self. Katherine Russell fell for Tamerlan, became pregnant, and obviously thought there was no way out. So she swallowed the bullet, married him, and converted to his religion, obviously believing that this is the way to keep a guy. However, it is not. Nothing suited him, and whenever a glimpse of self began to rise, she got into screaming matches with him, within earshot of the neighbors. But he had temper tantrums, throwing things, including furniture, at her.
He had a history of slapping around women. In fact, the cleric he admired believed that women who are raped deserve it. So, with that attitude, it’s no wonder he called his wife “whore” and “prostitute.” His teachings were misogynous, and that’s how he treated the women in his life.
Like any abused wife, she stayed because she feared that there was no other way out. Eventually, abused women are so emotionally beaten down, they forget that they ever had any self-esteem. When her friends from school and even her family saw her a few years later, they were shocked.
I shudder at the thought of how their daughter will grow up, with a scared mother and no father.
