Boston Bombing Suspect's Wife Lived A Perfectly Normal Life Before They Met; New Details Emerge

new details on tamerlan tsarnaevs wife katherine russell emerge

Details continue to emerge on the suspects involved in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings last week, and now we’re learning a little bit more about their personal lives.

Katherine Russell was married to Tamerlan Tsarnaev for nearly three years before his recent death and the two raised a daughter together. But it seems as though the widow was completely in the dark on her husband’s alleged intentions.

Before she met Tamerlan, Katie was a typical American teenager growing up in North Kingstown, Rhode Island who graduated at the top of her class. After high school, she left home for Boston to attend Suffolk University, and her family and friends started to notice changes in her behavior.

A source close to the family says:

“She stopped seeing a lot of her friends and cut them off. She became very withdrawn and quiet. That took away a lot of what we knew of her.”

While in Boston, Katie met Tamerlan and the two dated for a couple of years before getting married in 2010. She converted to Islam after growing up in a Christian household and dropped out of college the same year.

Since the recent events, she and her daughter Zahara have retreated to her hometown and have not spoken to the media. However, she did release a statement through her lawyers expressing her sorrow and shock:

“The injuries and loss of life – to people who came to celebrate a race and a holiday – has caused profound distress and sorrow to Katie and her family. The reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all.”

Her attorney continues to say that she was not aware of her late husband’s involvement in the bombings.

This must be an incredibly difficult time for Katie and her family, but hopefully she is able to provide some useful information that could provide more insight on Tamerlan's possible motives.

    Stella Tremblay, an obscure New Hampshire legislator, has made a name for herself by stating that she believes the U.S. government may have orchestrated the Boston Marathon bombings as part of an elaborate “false flag” operation.
