Questions for Dummies from Donna: Today The Boston Globe and someone who knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev has posed questions concerning a suspicion irking them. Three friends of Tamerlan Tsarnaev were brutally slaughtered in 2011 and marijuana was spread all over their dead bodies. Tamerlan Tsarnaev would have been offended by drug use, me thinks, because he’s a Muslim and he didn’t drink or smoke. However, Tamerlan’s younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was known by many “as a bit of a druggie” and one of the three murdered men had already plead guilty to possession to sell marijuana. Is that a motive for slitting three men’s throats and spreading marijuana all over their dead bodies? Tamerlan did not attend Brendan’s funeral 3 years ago, whom he said was his best friend. Now local Boston newspapers are wondering? Another question, that intrigues inquiring minds. The bodies were found on September 12, 2011, but according to Wikipedia, the murders occured on 9-11-11. Hummmmmm! We all have told that dates mean a lot to Muslim terrorists. Curious, aye? ▬Donna Calvin ▬ Monday, April 22, 2013
Item #2 of 2 (Excerpt)
FROM WIKIPEDIA: According to the Forward, “BuzzFeed spoke with a man named Ray, who now believes that Tsarnaev could have played a role in the unsolved crime.” who claimed that , “‘Tam wasn’t there at the memorial service, he wasn’t at the funeral, he wasn’t around at all… And he was really close with Brendan. That’s why it’s so weird when he said, ‘I don’t have any American friends.’” Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a close friend of murder victim Brendan Mess. The case is drawing international attention.
Did Boston bomber murder his ‘only American friend’ in horrific triple killing in 2011?
- Brendan Mess had throat slit alongside two other men in unsolved murder
- Boston bomb suspect didn’t attend funeral despite them being best friends
- Former associates at the gym where he trained now believe it is a clue
Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have murdered his ‘only American friend’ in an unsolved triple killing two years ago, it emerged today.
Brendan Mess had his ‘throat slit’ alongside two other men in a Massachusetts apartment in 2011 in what police described as a ‘very graphic crime scene’.
Former associates of the Chechan immigrant didn’t initially suspect him of carrying out the gruesome attack, but thought it was strange he didn’t attend his friend’s funeral.
Now one man who knew Tamerlan through the gym where they trained said some of their social circle ‘without even speaking about it beforehand have all been thinking’ he could be involved.
Indeed, at the time of the killing, police and Mess’ friends suspected his girlfriend, an immigrant from Somalia that Ray describes as a ‘transient’ who ‘latched onto Brendan’.
Ray described her as having a good relationship with Tsarnaev and that they would have ‘conversations about religious things and lifestyles.’
In 2008, Weissman was charged with marijuana possession and intent to distribute, according to a report. Police pulled Weissman over for failing to yield and smelled marijuana smoke in the vehicle. When asked about it, Weissman said, ‘I knew you would smell it,’ and handed the officer a brown paper bag filled with bags of marijuana, police said.
A year earlier, Tamerlan claimed to have just one American friend despite spending much of his life in the U.S.
Indeed, Tamerlan introduced Mess as his best friend to the owner of the gym.
