Boston Bombing Suspect Bought Fireworks on NH Seacoast

  One of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects reportedly bought fireworks at a Seabrook, N.H. store back in February, according to the Boston Globe. The newspaper says that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of the two suspects, bought two mortar kits from Phantom Fireworks on Route 1 in February. Store records show he purchased the two kits for $ 200 in cash as part of a two-for-one promotion. The store’s vice president said Tsarnaev may have used powder from the mortar kit shells to build the bombs that killed three and injured more than 200 on April 15. Phantom Fireworks is one of many stores along the Massachusetts border that sell fireworks. It also has stores in Londonderry and Scarborough, Maine. South End Patch

Bombing Suspect Indicted at Bedside, will Face Trial in Federal Court

  A federal magistrate visited the bedside of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as the surviving marathon bombing suspect was charged with the crime.  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.  Tsarnaev remains in serious condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, according to the FBI. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said this afternoon 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. South End Patch

Bombing Suspect Awake, Responding in Writing

The hospitalized Boston Marathon bombing suspect, who previously could not be interrogated due to his condition, has begun responding in writing to law enforcement officials questions, ABC News and NBC News reported Sunday evening. Both ABC News and NBC News reported that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, responded in writing to questions due to a throat wound he suffered and that may have been the result of a suicide attempt. Officials are asking about possible collaborations with other “cell members” to determine the scope of the Boston Marathon bombings plot, and about potential unexploded bombs. Tsarnaev remains in serious condition according to the FBI. Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said Friday evening that Tsarnaev was taken to a hospital in serious condition and covered in blood. Davis said officials assumed his injuries occured during the gunfight in Watertown the evening before. Shots were fired at the boat where Tsarnaev was found hiding, but officials did not know if Tsarnaev was hit. “We always want to take all the suspects alive, so we can find out what happened, why it happened and hold them for justice,” Davis said Friday night.
