Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body is being released from the Coroner. His widow and mother of his child, Katherine Russell, doesn’t want it (his body). She wants him returned to his family, and since brother Dzhokhar is in a military prison hospital, there’s little he can do. Will we fly him home to Dagestan or to his parents in Russia, at taxpayer expense? Widow Katherine has a criminal record from 2007, eerily similar to her future mother-in-law. Russell stole $67 in clothing from a Rhode Island Old Navy story when she was 18, paid a $200 fine, did some community service and the charges were dropped. According to police records, Russell said she was married but lived at home with her parents. No details on that marriage.
Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of the Boston bombers allegedly stole $1600 in clothing from a Lord & Taylor in New York. There is a warrant out for her arrest should she return to the U.S. (and she left the U.S. shortly after the theft).
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a bully. He was arrested in 2009 for slapping a girlfriend, and friends of Russell say he called her a “slut” and a “prostitute.”
Three of Russell’s friends told National Public Radio’s Laura Sullivan that Tsarnaev would often insult Russell and call her names, such as ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute.’
He was known to fly into into fits of rage where he would throw objects, including furniture, friends said.
Russell’s lawyer, Amato DeLuca, said she was a student at Suffolk University when she was introduced to Tsarnaev at a nightclub. He didn’t specify the exact date that they met, though it’s believed to be sometime during 2009.
Tsarnaev was seeing another woman at the time, he said.
‘They went out for a while, and then they stopped and then they went out again,’ DeLuca said.
It’s possible the other woman that Tsarnaev was apparently dating was 25-year-old Nadine Ascencao of Brookline, Mass.
Tsarnaev was arrested in July 2009 for allegedly slapping Ascencao, according to court records.
Ascencao was ‘crying hysterically’ and called 911 to report that she was ‘beat up by her boyfriend,’ Cambridge Police Officer Angela Pereira wrote in the arrest report.
Tsarnaev told Pereira and another officer that his girlfriend ‘was yelling at him because of another girl.’
Asked whether he had hit Ascencao, Tsarnaev stated, ‘Yes, I slapped her.’ He specifically stated that he struck the left side of her face.
Eleven months later, Tsarnaev was apparently no longer dating Aschencao. He had persuaded Russell to convert from Christianity to Islam and the couple married on June 21, 2010. Source: Daily Mail
Let us not ship this man anywhere at our expense. His family can pay for cremation and shipping his ashes wherever they want.
