May 1, 2013

Three more people have been taken into custody in connection to the deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon, the Boston Police Department tweeted today.

Two college-aged friends of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be in court this afternoon in Boston for their first appearance on charges including obstruction of justice and lying to federal agents, according to law enforcement officials and a lawyer for one of the two friends.

The lawyer, Robert Stahl, identified two of the new suspects as his client Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Kadyrbayev’s roommate Azmat Tazhayakov, 20, both Kazakh citizens who were in the U.S. as students. They had been detained two weeks ago on immigration charges and their arrests took place this morning after a teleconferenced immigration hearing. The third person taken into custody is a U.S. citizen, law enforcement officials said, but the suspect’s identity has not been released.

A senior counter-terrorism official told ABC News Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov are suspected of hiding important evidence and then lying to federal agents about it. A lawyer briefed on the case said the charges grow out of a request by Dzhokhar to his friends to go to his dormitory room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and remove and dispose of a backpack full of fireworks.

Dzhokhar is in custody after being seriously injured in his flee from police. His brother and alleged co-conspirator Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police hours before Dzhokhar’s capture.

Late Tuesday, the Tsarnaev family was deciding what to do with Tamerlan’s body.

Bella Tsarnaev, one of the young man’s sisters, told ABC News in her first public statement that she and her sister Ailina have planned a proper Muslim burial for Tamerlan. The brothers’ uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, told The Associated Press Tuesday the family would take the body, “We will do it. A family is a family.”

When the Massachusetts Medical Examiner’s Office was ready to release her husband’s body, Tamerlan’s widow Katherine Russell declined to take it herself, according to her attorney.

“It is Katherine Russell’s wish that his remains be released to the Tsarnaev family, and we will communicate her wishes to the proper authorities,” attorney Amato DeLuca said Tuesday. DeLuca also said Russell has been meeting with law enforcement and is providing “as much assistance to the investigation as she can.”

The statement came as investigators said they may have pinpointed a turning point in Tamerlan’s growth into alleged radical: a 2012 trip to Russia in which he may have had contact with Russian Islamists.

American officials said they are investigating whether Tamerlan had been in contact over the internet with a man named William Plotnikov, a Russian-Canadian and a fellow boxer, who had converted to Islam and joined the militant insurgency in the North Caucasus. Plotnikov was killed by Russian authorities while Tamerlan was in Russia, and Tamerlan left the country just days later.

Investigators also want to know what Tamerlan was doing with a known militant recruiter in the region named Mansur Mukhamed Nidal with whom Tamerlan was repeatedly seen leaving a controversial mosque in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan. Nidal was also killed by Russian authorities while Tamerlan was in Russia.

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev managed to say just one word to a federal judge when charges were filed against him in a makeshift courtroom held at the side of his hospital bed, “No.”

No, he could not afford an attorney.

As a result, Tsarnaev, 19, who is facing the possibility of the death penalty for his alleged role in last week’s terror attack, will be represented by one of the most experienced and well respected public defenders in the country, Miriam Conrad.

Conrad heads the Federal Public Defender Office in Boston and her resume includes defending “shoe bomber” Richard Reid in 2001 for trying to blow up a Paris to Miami jetliner.

“She is excellent, tough, tenacious and wise,” said Tamar R. Birckhead, now a University of North Carolina law professor who worked with Conrad for four years, including on the Reid case.

Tsarnaev is charged with detonating a weapon of mass destruction and maliciously destroying public property, capital offenses that carry the death penalty. He is currently in the hospital being treated for wounds sustained in a shootout with police last week prior to his capture.

Conrad and several other attorneys from her office were listed in court documents as the team representing Tsarnaev. Among them was William S. Fick, who was present at Monday’s hearing held inside Tsarnaev’s hospital room. Fick requested additional help from attorneys who have previously handled death penalty cases, a requirement under federal law.

Conrad and her team have a difficult case ahead of them. They are trying to keep alive someone many would consider to be the most hated man in America. Their client is bedridden and barely able to communicate. Facing budget cuts as a result of the federal sequester, they are up against the U.S. Attorney and FBI that have made Tsarnaev’s prosecution a top priority.

“It’s a David and Goliath situation,” said Birckhead, “There’s an assumption that the defendant is guilty, and should be immediately executed. All of that is a tough road to travel.”

On top of investigating and building their defense, Conrad and her team also have to deal with the routine threats and taunts that come along with standing up for someone reviled for allegedly bombing innocent people, including children.

“In general, it’s a very difficult job,” said Nancy Gertner, a judge and Harvard law professor. “Public defenders have to represent whoever comes in the door. Sometimes it’s a sympathetic defendant, but sometimes it’s an unsympathetic defendant, and Dzhokhar is as unsympathetic as they come. The public doesn’t understand that the system works better when defense lawyers work their hearts out.”

Conrad, 56, has led the Federal Public Defender’s Office since 2005. A graduate of Harvard Law School, she has defended a number of high profile terrorism cases.

In addition to defending Reid, Conrad represented represented Rezwan Ferdaus, a U.S. citizen of Bangladeshi ancestry who was sentenced to 17 years after he was found guilty of plotting an attack on the Capitol Building and the Pentagon.

Fick, an assistant in the office, is a graduate of Yale Law, who turned down an offer on Wall Street to become a public defender.

“This is a high quality team,” said Gertner, for whom Fick worked as a clerk. “It puts to lie the notion that public defenders are lesser lawyers. This is an enormously talented group.”

Tsarnaev’s defense team has likely already began its own investigation, but part of their defense will likely be looking for mitigating evidence, clues that explain Tsarnaev’s frame of mind.

“They are going to investigate Dzhokhar’s background and childhood, [and] the relationship with his brother. Was he acting under duress? What was his mental state? They’ll make sure he’s given psychiatric exams,” Birckhead said.

Calls to the defender office for comment were not returned.

April 18, 2013

The F.B.I. on Thursday released still and video images of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings — including a man who was seen setting down a backpack at the site of the second blast — and appealed for the public’s help identifying the men.

One was seen placing a dark-colored backpack outside the Forum restaurant, the site of the second bombing, just minutes before the explosion, said Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.’s Boston field office.

“Today we are enlisting the public’s help to identify the two suspects,” Mr. DesLauriers said at a news conference on Thursday evening in Boston.

In the video, both men are carrying backpacks, and wearing baseball caps, one a dark cap and one a white cap turned backward. They are walking along Boylston Street. A thin crowd could be seen watching the marathon runners, and the generally festive mood all around them was evident when a spectator in a bright blue jacket, holding several yellow balloons, walked in front of the two men.

The images were located as investigators spent hours since Monday afternoon’s attack poring over surveillance videos from stores near the scenes of the two deadly blasts, as well as footage take on smartphones and by television crews filming the Boston Marathon. “Within the last day or so, through that careful process, we initially developed a single person of interest,” Mr. DesLauriers said. “Not knowing if the individual was acting alone or in concert with others, we obviously worked with extreme purpose to make that determination.”

After a concerted effort, he said, investigators determined that a second suspect had been involved.

Both men appeared to be wearing dark-colored zippered-front jackets. The first, whom Mr. DesLauriers called Suspect 1, wore a dark-colored baseball cap with a white emblem on it and markings on the front, a white T-shirt and tan pants. Visible around the edges of his cap was short dark hair. The man he identified as Suspect 2 wore a white baseball cap backward, with dark-colored pants. He had slightly longer curly hair. The men appeared to be wearing hooded sweatshirts beneath the jackets.

Mr. DesLauriers did not characterize the appearance of the men or offer an opinion as to their possible ethnicity or national origin.

Mr. DesLauriers urged anyone who has seen the men, or who knows who they are, to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

Earlier Thursday, President Obama flew to Boston and told a service mourning victims of the bombings that “the spirit of this city is undaunted, and the spirit of this country shall remain undimmed.”

“Every one of us has been touched by this attack on your beloved city, every one of us stands with you,” Mr. Obama said in emotional remarks at an interfaith service in Boston’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross, where he mourned those who died, spoke in often personal terms about the city of Boston and ended with a rousing look forward to next year’s Boston Marathon.

As the president sought to console a shaken Boston, and a shaken nation, investigators continued to try to find out who was behind the attacks.

In Washington, Janet Napolitano, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, addressed the attacks, telling a Congressional committee that the authorities are seeking to speak with “individuals” spotted in video footage.

“We have been collecting video from a variety of sources, as you might imagine, at the finish line of the Boston Marathon,” she said. “There’s lots and lots of video. There is some video that has raised the question of those that the F.B.I. would like to speak with.”

The interfaith service that Mr. Obama spoke at, “Healing Our City,” brought together Christian, Muslim and Jewish religious leaders, as well as prominent state and local leaders. Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and Mr. Obama’s rival in last year’s presidential election, was among the dignitaries as the service.

Boston’s long-serving mayor, Thomas M. Menino, who recently announced that he would not seek a sixth term, got out of the wheelchair he has been using because of a broken leg and stood at the lectern to proclaim, “We are one Boston,” adding that he had never loved the city’s people more. And Gov. Deval L. Patrick of Massachusetts said that “we will have accountability without vengeance, vigilance without fear.”

Consoling a shaken public has become one of the jobs of American presidents in recent years, from the eulogy President Bill Clinton delivered at the Oklahoma City State Fair Arena after the deadly bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building there in 1995 to President George W. Bush’s trip to see the rescue workers at the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center a few days after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to the eulogies that President Obama has delivered after mass shootings in Tucson and, just months ago, Newtown, Conn.

At a Senate hearing Thursday morning, the nation’s top intelligence official, James R. Clapper Jr., echoed President Obama’s comments earlier this week that the authorities still do not know whether the attack was a foreign or domestic plot, carried out by one or more individuals or a group.

In a brief interview after the hearing, Mr. Clapper, the director of national intelligence, said all of the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies are supporting the F.B.I.-led investigation, with personnel as well as analytical and technical know-how. “We will bring all the resources that they need,” said Mr. Clapper, who declined to provide details.

In Boston, Mr. Obama spoke in personal terms about the victims of the bombing and offered prayers for their families. Krystle Campbell, 29, of Medford, Mass., was “always smiling,” he said, noting that her parents were at the service. He said that his prayers were with the family of Lu Lingzi, 23, in China, who had sent her to graduate school at Boston University “so that she could experience all that this city has to offer.” And he spoke about what he called the heartbreaking death Martin Richard, 8, of Dorchester, who was killed in the blast, which also wounded his mother and sister.

“His last hours were as perfect as an 8-year-old boy could hope for: with his family, eating ice cream at a sporting event,’’ the president said.

Krystle Campbell is the second identified victim of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing.

TUESDAY APRIL 16, 2013            2:04 PM

A heartbroken dad whose daughter was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings had to endure a second shockwave of terror: doctors initially confused his daughter’s identity with a friend who survived.

“We had the doctors come out and tell us everything they did (on the survivor) — and it wasn’t our daughter,” said William Campbell Jr. 56.

The tragic turn of events began Monday when Krystle Campbell, 29, of Medford, Mass. was watching the marathon with the friend, Karen Rand, to cheer on Rand’s boyfriend.

The pair were caught in the first blast at 2:20 p.m., and for hours, William Campbell and his wife believed doctors were operating on their daughter’s leg at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Frantic tweets indicate that for hours after the blasts people believed it was Karen who was missing. The Campbells, however, believed their daughter was alive.

So when nurses let the Campbells into an intensive care room at around 2 a.m. to visit their “daughter,” the family was stunned to see the recuperating patient was, in fact, Karen.

“I said, ‘That’s not my daughter, that’s Karen! Where’s my daughter?’ The doctors were as shocked as we were,” Campbell said.

Within an hour a Boston detective arrived and showed them a photo of their daughter — one of three killed in the terror attack.

“I almost passed out on the floor, Campbell recalled Tuesday, moments before leaving for a viewing of his daughter’s body.

The devastated dad said Krystle, a manager at Jimmy’s Steer House, was “a dream.”

“She was the best person you’d ever meet. She helped everybody,” Campbell said. “I don’t who care you were, she was always there.”

His grief mixed with rage.

“I’m very angry. I hope they catch the bastard and fry him,” Campbell said.

“I can’t understand it — someone doing that. People are out there enjoying a beautiful day and then to have this happen.”

“And then the little boy that passed,” he added, alluding to 8-year-old Martin Richard. “It’s totally tragic.”

8-year-old Martin Richard, seen in this Facebook photo, was killed in the explosions at the Boston Marathon

04/16/2013             5:38 am EDT

Martin Richard was standing near the finish line, waiting for his father to complete the grueling Boston Marathon on Monday, when an explosion took his life.

He was 8 years old and in the third grade.

Neighbor Jane Sherman told WCVB that Martin was a typical little boy, who loved to ride his bike and play baseball.

Martin’s mother, Denise, was hospitalized with “grievous injuries,” The Times of London reported. She reportedly underwent surgery late Monday for an injury to her brain.

His 6-year-old sister, a first grader whose name was not made public, lost her leg in the blast, WHDH reported.

The status of his father, William, has not been released. A third child was reportedly unharmed in the explosion.

The Richard family hails from the Ashmont section of Dorchester, Mass. Last night, locals gathered at Tavolo Restaurant to remember Martin and his family.

“They are beloved by this community. They contribute in many ways. That’s why you see this outpouring,” City Councilor at Large Ayanna Pressley told The Boston Globe “It’s surreal, it’s tragic, it’s incomprehensible. Everyone here tonight is trying to comfort one another and be prayerful.”

The explosions on Monday afternoon claimed the lives of at least two other people. More than 140 were also injured.
