According to an article published by The Boston Globe on Oct. 16, the man whose boat was used as a hideout by suspected Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in April is speaking out to set the record straight.
The Boston Globe reports that 66-year-old David Henneberry has been bombarded by requests from movie makers, book writers, and reporters, and he thought the time right to tell the world exactly how he discovered Tsarnaev.
Initial reports were that Henneberry spotted blood on the side of his boat after emerging from his home after being on lock down, but Henneberry says that isn't true at all. In fact, Henneberry said if he saw blood he wouldn't have investigated it. Henneberry added: “I'm not crazy.”
Henneberry says what actually happened is that he noticed some padding had fallen off the boat while he was locked inside his home, and once the police lifted the lock down order he decided to go fix it.
Henneberry told reporters that he grabbed a stepladder, lifted the shrink wrap, and saw blood inside the boat followed by a person curled in a fetal position. Henneberry said he thought to himself: “Oh my god, he's in there,” and rushed inside to call 911.
David Henneberry says he isn't a “rock star who sought publicity,” and added that “I just want this all to fade away.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured on April 19, just four days after authorities allege he and his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev set off two bombs near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Those bombs killed three people and injured more than 270 others on April 15.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in the early hours of April 19 after a late night confrontation with law enforcement officers. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested in the evening hours of April 19, and has been charged with 30 crimes including using a weapon of mass destruction, and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death.
