Cause of Death Issued for Tamerlan Tsarnaev

The death of accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been ruled a homicide, according to a WCVB-TV report. According to the report, Tsarnaev’s death was caused by gunshot wounds from police bullets and being run over by a car. Tsarnaev, 26, was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center in Boston at 1:35 a.m. on Friday, April 19. Specifically, Tsarnaev sustained gunshot wounds to his torso and “extreme” blunt trauma to his head and torso, according to WCVB. Police have said Tsarnaev was run over by his brother, Dzhokar, during a shootout with police in Watertown. Dzhokar, 19 escaped the gun battle but was later captured hiding in a boat at a Watertown home.  The Graham, Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Home in Worcester, which plans to handle Tamerlan’s funeral arrangements, said the body will undergo a second autopsy, according to the Boston Herald. The Massachusetts Medical Examiner’s Office released the body to Tamerlan’s relatives on Thursday, May 2. Tamerlan’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, is in Worcester to help with the funeral arrangements, according to the Globe.  The family does not plan to bury the body until an independent coroner issues a cause of death, according to the Globe.

Tsarnaev Brothers Were En Route to NY to ‘Party’

  The brothers accused in the Boston Marathon bombings had plans to “party” in New York before a Friday manhunt that ended with the elder dead and the younger in cuffs. New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said brother Tamerlan and Dzokhar Tsarnaev intended on fleeing to New York City to “celebrate” the night of April 18, according to NBC-4 New York Thursday. Instead what ensued was a day-long manhunt for Dzokhar Tsarnaev following the death of his older brother, Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout in Watertown. Dzokhar Tsarnaev is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction in April 15 bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line which killed three and injured 180 others. He is also accused of the murder of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier. There was a service for the fallen officer at the MIT campus Thursday. It was originally reported that the brothers were headed to New York to commit other attacks, according to the story. South End Patch

Report: Tsarnaev Admits to Detonating Marathon Bombs

The Boston Marathon bombing suspect currently hospitalized admitted to FBI agents that he and his brother detonated the bombs planted near the finish line, the Boston Globe reports. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, made the reported admission on Sunday from his bed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and had not yet been given a Miranda warning, the Globe reported. A “senior police official” told the Globe that authorities were not concerned about Tsarnaev not being read his Miranda rights, which means any statements he made would not be admissible in court, due to testimony of the Tsarnaev brother’s alleged carjacking victim. According to the criminal complaint filed against Tsarnaev, during the carjacking on Thursday night one of the brothers pointed a firearm at the victim and said, “Did you hear about the Boston explosion?” and “I did that.” U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz previously said that Tsarnaev was not read his Miranda rights when taken into custody due to a public safety exemption in cases of national security and acts of terrorism. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Tsarnaev will be tried in civilian court and not treated as an Enemy Combatant. Carney noted that Tsarnaev is a naturalized American citizen and thus cannot be tried in front of a military tribunal, as an enemy combatant would. Tsarnaev is charged with unlawfully using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction (namely, an improvised explosive device) against persons and property within the United States.  He is also charged with maliciously damaging and destroying, by means of explosive, real and personal property used in interstate and foreign commerce and actively affecting interstate and foreign commerce resulting in personal injury and death.  His brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed when he was run over by his brother, suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a lengthy battle with law enforcement early Friday morning.
