Tamerlan Tsarnaev voices: Boston bomber Tsarnaev heard voices in his head

Tamerlan Tsarnaev heard voices in his head according to a new report. On Dec. 15, Yahoo! News reported that the deceased Boston bomber was "tormented" by voices in his head according to the investigation results. There has even been some speculation as to whether or not Tamerlan was schizophrenic.

"He believed in majestic mind control, which is a way of breaking down a person and creating an alternative personality with which they must coexist. You can give a signal, a phrase or a gesture, and bring out the alternate personality and make them do things. Tamerlan thought someone might have done that to him," said Tsarnaev acquaintance Donald Larking.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev voiced his opinion on his hatred of America after a trip to Dagestan. He was reportedly "very angry" about America’s foreign policy in Afghanistan and Iraq -- and this was his reason for lashing out against American citizens -- it was his way of "getting back" at this country.

The investigation findings also provided another very interesting piece of information -- although it doesn't look like it's directly connected to the case. Apparently Tamerlan Tsarnaev used to party at Salem State University in the same years that Officer Sean Collier attended school there. There is nothing that proves Tamerlan ever met Sean -- but the connection is still eery nonetheless.

The voices Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly heard could have made him crazy -- but no one thinks that's a good excuse for the unthinkable crimes he and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, carried out on April 15, 2013.
