LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Marathon bombing suspect is “a true angel” says he’s dad. But his uncle calls him a “loser” that didn’t fit into society. Anzor Tsarnaev is the father Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (photos below). He paints a far different picture of his sons than his brother, Ruslan Tsarni, does. Moreover, Anzor’s background remains in question. After Facebook like account details of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev surfaced today, family members are explaining what they know about the Boston Marathon bombers.
Anzor brought his children to the U.S. in roughly 2001 by way of a Turkish passport. His brother tells news that the family never lived in Chechnya but lived across the border in Russia. Officials with the Chechnya government says that the family had moved to Central Asia, then Dagestan, then Turkey, and then the U.S.
As news broke this morning, Anzor contacted several U.S. new agencies. Anzor is not in the U.S. but admits to leaving his two children include the “white hat” suspect, 19, without a parent in the U.S. But Anzor in Russia reached out to U.S. news to offer this glowing reviews of his son. His son is accused of the worse mass murder on U.S. soil since 9/11. Anzor claims his son was set up.
“My son is a true angel… [eh was an intelligent boy” who was studying medicine. “We expected him to come on holidays here,” he said. “They were set up, they were set up!… I saw it on television; they killed my older son Tamerlan….Leave me alone, my son’s been killed.”
Anzor a car mechanic would not explain how his children had access to so many vehicles. Friends of the youths claim that they personally had at their disposal at least three cars this month.
After Anzor’s remarks to AP, another relative believed to be the brothers’ sister, told the Star Ledger her side of the story. “They were great people. I never would have expected it. They are smart – I don’t know what’s gotten into them.” She added “No I’m not okay – no one is okay right now. I’m hurt for everyone who has been hurt. I’m sorry for all the people who are hurt and for all the people who lost their lives.” She referrred to them as her “brothers”. She lives in West New York and chose not to be identified.
But the real insight comes from Ruslan Tsarni. He says his brother had no control over his own children. He says his nephews have been “losers” for years. “He deserved his. He absolutely deserved his. They do not deserve to live on this earth.” Ruslan Tsarni told news that his nephews were never well suited, that they did not fit in with society and that he is ashamed for his conduct.
Meantime, the big key words remaining unresolved is “international connection”. Officials have yet to find any international connection between the brothers and a foreign entity. The other brother spent six months in Russia last year. But a State Department rep unofficially told ABC that such detail doesn’t indicate any influence by an intentional source. National news confirms that investigators are still looking to find any possible international nexus, connection, or influence with the brothers.
