Three more people were taken into custody on May 1 in relation to the horrific bombing at the Boston marathon. It now appears the Tsarnaev brothers did not act alone.
After the horrific Boston bombing on April 15, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were apprehended for the crime, but it now appears that they had help. On May 1, the Boston Police took three additional suspects into custody. Read on for all the new details.
Three Suspects Taken Into Custody For Boston Bombings
“Three additional suspects taken into custody in Marathon bombing case. Details to follow.” tweeted the Boston Police on May 1.
Following this, the Boston Globe tweeted “A source tells the Globe that the three were connected to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at UMass Dartmouth and helped him after the fact.”
These developments occurred one day after the CIA said they believed the Tsarnaev brothers did not act alone.
Former CIA Operative Robert Baer spoke to CNN and says he believes there are more people involved in the crime:
My opinion is, it’s the circuitry of the bomb. There’s a certain signature they are going to find on this. And I have seen multiple reports, “Wall Street Journal,” ABC News, CNN and on, that there — that police are looking at this as a sophisticated device which does not precisely follow the Internet plans that are in “Inspire” magazine. If that’s the case, there’s a master bomber out there. If there is a master bomber, is he in Dagestan or is he in the United States? Because if he’s in the United States, there’s a chance he could strike again.
I mean, if [the suspects] made [the bombs] off the Internet in their kitchens, they wouldn’t be carrying them to rural Massachusetts, outside of town. It just doesn’t make sense.
And in an attack like this, the last thing you want is a bomb to be a dud, because the plot is uncovered, everybody goes to jail, nothing happens, it doesn’t serve their purposes, their ideological purposes. So you want these things to be foolproof. And in order to have them foolproof, you need a bomb maker to do it or someone with a lot of practice. Otherwise, these things just don’t go after with that consistency that they managed to make happen.
