A Boston Marathon bombing suspect has been linked to a triple homicide. Fox News reports on Oct. 23 that Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been named as a suspect. The case involves three men who were killed and is known as the Waltham triple homicide.
Tsarnaev was killed in April, but he is now being considered a suspect in the Waltham triple homicide that occurred in 2011. Ibragim Todashev, who was friends with Tsarnaev and was killed by the FBI, linked him to the murders. Todashev shared that Tsarnaev was responsible during a conversation with authorities.
The three men were found with slit throats and covered in marijuana. Brendan Mess, Erik Weissman and Raphael Teken were discovered in the same location, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev knew at least one of them through boxing. The Waltham triple homicide is an ongoing investigation, and Tsarnaev may not have been the only person involved. Despite the naming of a suspect, the case is still considered unsolved.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers have asked for documents related to the three murders to help his case. However, prosecutors have denied the requests and have stated they cannot allow access to these documents since the investigation is not over.
