LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev (photos below) had at least one Russian Facebook-like account on VKontakte (vk.com/id160300242). The Russian Facebook-like account of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Suspect 2 in the Boston Marathon Bombings, listed him as a 19 year old student Cambridge Rindge & Latin School. The account, first uncovered by RT.com, is one of several social media accounts being revealed moments ago. The brothers’ parents live allegedly in Russia, their uncle who calls the brothers “real losers” lives in Maryland.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev are suspect 2 and suspect 1 in the Boston Marathon bombings, the MIT cop fatal shooting, and the Watertown shooting of a transit cop. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the white hat suspect, is one the loose. He is 19 years old. Tamerlan Tzarnaev, the black hat suspect, is dead. He was 26 years old and killed last night in the Watertown, MA explosions.
The names of the two brothers’ parents have not been released to news. But NBC is reporting that the family entered the US either two years ago. Other reports however claim they may have entered in United States in either 2002 or 2003. While the family is from Chechnya, they appear to possible have entered the US on visas from Turkey where they were legal citizens as well.
Cambridge scholarships in 2011 (cambridgema.gov) listed the younger brother as a 2011 City Scholarship Recipient. In a May 2011 news statement, the organization said “Each year, the City of Cambridge awards 35-45 scholarships for $2,500 each to Cambridge high school seniors and others pursuing higher education. City officials gratefully acknowledge the generous contribution of the many citizens of Cambridge who make this special opportunity possible.” A picture features Dzhokhar Tsarnaev receiving the scholarship online at the official website.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly killed his brother Tamerlan Tzarnaev last night during a gunfire standoff in Watertown, MA. Initial news reports claim that the older brother died of explosive and gunshot wounds. But local news is now reporting that as the gunfire escalated the younger brother jumped into the car and drove over his brother in an attempt to flee the scene.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains on loose. He is armed and dangerous. Moreover, police believe that Dzhokhar might be covered in explosives as well. For now the parents of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev remain unknown, the status of the original visa is unclear. UPDATE: Moments ago, the Uncle in Maryland tells news that the parents live in Russia.
