Special Homecoming for Marathon Bombing Survivor

Boston Marathon bombing survivor Roseann Sdoia speaks the press upon her release from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Tuesday, May 14, 2013—almost exactly one month since the explosion that caused her to lose her right leg and sustain other injuries.

Wearing a white T-shirt with the words “Roseann Strong” in bright orange letters, Boston Marathon bombing survivor Roseann Sdoia made her way home Tuesday morning, after a grand send-off at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital that included a three-engine escort from the Boston Fire Department.

The milestone came almost exactly one month after the April 15 explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured more than 260 people. Sdoia had attended that day’s Red Sox game at Fenway Park and headed over to Copley Square to watch the rest of the marathon when she was caught up in one of the two explosions.

On Tuesday, Sdoia spoke to reporters in the lobby of the new Spaulding Hospital in the Charlestown Navy Yard before making her way outside on crutches and climbing into a friend’s waiting car.

“I’m doing really good. I’m excited to go home,” Sdoia said. “I’m definitely going to miss this place, but I’m excited to go home.” read more

Brothers Injured in Bombing Recovering Together at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital

Friends and family help wheel brothers Paul (left) and JP Norden (right) into a conference room for a press event at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown on Monday, May 13, 2013. The brothers both lost a limb and sustained other injuries in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.

Brothers JP and Paul Norden reunited last Friday at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, where they are both undergoing care for injuries sustained in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings. Used to seeing each other several times a day before the explosion that left them both without one leg, the brothers were glad for the reunion, though it will be short-lived—Paul is expected to be released from Spaulding soon for out-patient care, while JP will remain behind.

“I can’t even describe…” Paul, 31, said when asked what it was like to be back with his brother. “I didn’t see him for 14 days, and it was so tough. I see him every day of my life. So it’s just amazing to be back to normal.”

JP, 33, said of their reunion: “It’s the best thing ever.”

At a press conference held Monday at Spaulding’s new location in the Charlestown Navy Yard, the Stoneham natives spoke about the many emotions they had experienced over the past month, the ups and downs of rehabilitation and their special bond as brothers—which comes with a healthy side of competition. Paul even joked that the hospital that treated him after the bombing, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, was better than Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which treated JP. (Both brothers had nothing but good things to say about their respective medical teams.) read more

Families of Marathon Bombing Victims Could Receive $1 Million Each

Victims and family members of the Boston Marathon bombings attended a town hall meeting on May 6, 2013, at the Copley Library, to learn about how funds would be dispersed from One Fund Boston.

One Fund Boston administrator Kenneth Feinberg led a Town Hall meeting on Monday to discuss how funds will be distributed to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Feinberg, who helped distribute the private funds for victims of 9/11, the Aurora, CO theater shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting, said the final protocol for fund distribution will be completed by May 15. 

The One Fund Boston currently has $ 28 million pledged, with $ 11 million in cash, Feinberg said in a publicly broadcast meeting from the Copley Public Library.

Feinberg reiterated that it was possible the families of the four victims could be given a million dollars. Initial protocol listed different levels of compensation for double and single amputees. 

“Whatever we do with this fund is inadequate. Lower your expectations of this fund. If you had a billion you wouldn’t have enough money to … compensate people,” Feinberg said. read more

Tsarnaev’s College Friends Face Federal Charges in Boston Marathon Bombing

Moakley Federal Courthouse


In the days following the Boston Marathon bombings April 15, accused suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev texted with a college friend thrusting him and two others into the precarious situation of helping the man who may have attacked the city.

Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, and Robel Phillipos, 20, looked every bit as young in their initial federal court appearance Wednesday afternoon as their actions in the days following the bombing would indicate, according to the federal criminal complaint against them.

Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov each face one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, and Phillipos faces a charge of making false statements in a terrorism investigation. Each voluntarily denied bail and were detained following their appearance before Judge Marianne B. Bowler at John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse in Boston.

Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, nationals of Kazakhstan who were in immigration court Wednesday morning because of expired student visas, face a maximum penalty of five years in prison with three years supervised release and a fine of $ 250,000. Phillipos faces a maximum penalty of an eight-year prison term with three years supervised release and a fine of $ 250,000. All three said they would be able to afford lawyers. read more
