Federal authorities tried to question the wife of dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 — but the 24-year-old mother still refuses to talk to police. Read on for more details.
The FBI is still waiting to talk to Katherine Russell, the widow of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, for information surrounding the deadly April 15 attacks that killed three and injured 176. Authorities showed up to Katherine’s parents’ Rhode Island home on April 21, but she refused to talk to the feds. Her lawyers, however, spoke to the media and released a statement on her behalf on April 23.
Katherine Russell Questioned — What Does She Know About Boston Bombing?
Katherine’s lawyer, Amato DeLuca, told the Associated Press that she declined to speak to authorities when they arrived at her parents house. He told the Associated Press:
“I spoke to them, and that’s all I can say right now,” he said.
Amato also added that his client wasn’t aware of her husband’s alleged involvement in the deadly Boston Marathon bombing until she saw photos of the suspects on TV.
“When this allegedly was going on, she was working, and had been working all week to support her family,” he told the Associated Press.
When asked whether or not anything seemed wrong to Katherine following the bombings, her lawyer responded, “not as far as I know.”
Amato told reporters he spoke with federal officials, but wouldn’t give any more details.
”We’re deciding what we want to do and how we want to approach this,” he said.
Katherine Russell — All-American College Student
Katherine was known as a promising artist and student, and a typical all-American suburban daughter of Christian parents. But she shocked friends and family members when she dropped out of college at the age of 21 to get married to Tamerlan. They welcomed their first child soon after, a daughter named Zahara.
