3 gentlemen have been murdered in Waltham, Massachusetts on September 11, 2011 — the tenth anniversary of 9/11, although the query of no matter whether that is applicable or not may well be the the very least exciting part of the story. Their necks ended up slit, and their corpses ended up coated in marijuana and five thousand bucks in hard cash. It was brutal and bizarre adequate to make the information, but the cops pretty quickly dropped the investigation, and nothing ever came of it.
…until about a year and a 50 percent later on, on April 15, 2013, when Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his brother Dzhokhar dropped a pair of bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. As it turned out, Tamerlan experienced been near buddies with the 3 men who have been killed in Waltham that day. They utilised to box jointly — Tamerlan had been coaching for the US Olympic Workforce, but hit a roadblock with getting his naturalized citizenship. Tamerlan experienced also been in speak to with FBI all over this similar time that he was slipping out with these mates. The Russian FSB had warned them that he had gotten involved with some Islamic Extremists during a vacation to the Chechen region where he was born, and, according to this mother, he was allegedly remaining pressured into informing for the Feds.
Feels like one thing another person really should have noticed or followed-up just before the bombing happened, yeah?
