Federal Charges Filed Against Boston Bombing Suspect — Carolyn Costello Reports
From Boston to New York to Washington, people stood silent at 2:50 eastern time…in somber observance of the deadly attack.
After the silence, bells tolled to honor those killed and wounded….50 people are still hospitalized…two remain in critical condition.
Doctors say amputees are beginning to learn to walk again.
“It takes a lot of safety, a lot of practice and they have to learn new routines.”
Meanwhile the surviving suspected terrorist, 19 year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — has been charged with a federal judge magistrate in his hospital room. He’s charged with using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death, and malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device.
Too injured to speak, is reportedly communicating with investigators… ABC News is reporting Dzhokhar is awake and responding periodically in writing to investigators’ questions….about other cell members and unexploded bombs.
CBS News reports Dzhokhar told authorities he and his brother acted alone.
Dzhokhar was captured from a tarp-covered boat on Friday night…where he was hiding, injured after a shootout with police the night before…in which his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed.
Authorities converged on this Rhode Island home today…trying to get answers from Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife and mother of his 3 year old daughter. 24 year old American, Katherine Russell shared a home in Rhode Island with Tamerlan…authorities want to speak with Russell who fled to her parents home after her husband was linked to the bombing. …for now the fbi is only speaking with her lawyer.
Meanwhile, questions are piling up about Tamerlan’s activities leading up to Monday’s bombing.
The FBI investigated Tamerlan in 2011 at the request of Russian officials concerned of ties to radical groups, Tamerlan then went on a 6-month visit to Russia in 2012….and returned to the U.S.
