Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, told the FBI that he and his brother considered both suicide bombings and an attack on the 4th of July.

Along with his older brother Tamerlan, Tsarnaev was the mastermind and perpetrator of the bombing at the Boston Marathon’s finish line that took three lives and injured dozens of people. Tsarnaev was killed in a police chase and standoff that left one police officer dead, while Dzhokhar is currently recovering from several gunshot wounds in a Boston hospital. Authorities have been interrogating the surviving Tsarnaev from his hospital room since he was captured.


The New York Times reports that Tsarnaev revealed alternatives to he and his brother’s plans two days after we was arrested in Watertown. He revealed to authorities that he built the pressure cooker explosives used in the bombings at Tamerlan’s house, and that they were planning on detonating them on July 4, 2013. When the construction of the bombs was completed much earlier than they had planned, the brothers decided to set them off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon instead.

Yesterday, Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body was released by authorities and claimed by his family in Boston. Tamerlan was shot by police during a standoff in the midst of a manhunt across the Boston area. He was 26 years old.

The medical examiner determined Tsarnaev’s cause of death, but the Huffington Post reports that this information would not be released to the public until both his remains were released and a death certificate was filed.

On Tuesday night, Tsarnaev’s uncle Ruslan Tsarni of Maryland said that his family would claim the body. After the Tsarnaev brothers were identified as the primary suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, Tsarni condemned the actions of his nephews and described them as “losers.”

“Of course, family members will take possession of the body,” said Tsarni. “We’ll do it. We will do it. A family is a family.”

Reports have suggested that a hearse leaving the medical examiner’s office carried Tsarnaev’s body to Dyer Lake Funeral Home in North Attleboro. Around 20 protesters were seen outside of the funeral home. The hearse was later seen leaving the funeral home with two police escorts.
