Man shot dead by FBI agent knew Boston bombing suspect, Update 5/23


I just saw this from myfox Orlando. Obviously very early reporting but something to watch.

Myfox Orlando link

Looks like the guy shot, knew Tamerlan from back in Boston. Both were fighters, and had contact as recently as a few months ago. The FBI was pursuing and questioning, and now the guy is dead.

That is true... But I'm waiting to get more details.

I'm thinking that the agent approached him, not identifying himself, the guy defended himself, and then the agent shot him.

Very... For an agency that completely dropped the ball before the attacks, its a nice little way to tie up loose ends.

(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they're going to bring him back. They never brought him back," Taramiv said.

That makes it sound like he was in custody to me

They also can't shoot, stab, beat or bomb anyone, either.

Lots of different stories on this. Came across this one this morning. Seems Todashev was confessing to the triple murder in Waltham. Could be that info on the slayings came up during the investigation of the possible Todashev/Tsarnaev Boston bombing connection?

My question is, did the confrontation between Todashev and the agent occur apart from the interrogation, or was this during the interrogation---in which case, what the hell was he doing with a weapon??

quote:

NBC News reported Wednesday morning that law enforcement officials said Todashev had confessed to the agent in Florida that he played a role in a triple murder in 2011 in which three men were killed in an apartment in Waltham, Mass.

Their throats had been cut, and their bodies were covered with marijuana. No suspects had been arrested in that case, but it has been reported that authorities suspected Tamerlan Tsarnaev was also involved in that triple murder.

The NBC News report said FBI agents were questioning Todashev on Tuesday. He was cooperative at first, law enforcement officials told NBC, but late Tuesday night, he attacked the agent with a knife — and the agent shot and killed him.

The NBC report says that Todashev became violent as he was about to sign a written statement based on his confession.

The officials told NBC that Todashev had some connections with radical Chechen rebels, but it was not clear whether he had any role in radicalizing Tsarnaev.

This is crazy. It sounds like this was during an interrogation, in which case was it at FBI or a government building? How was he armed? Lot of confusion in this story.

Each day it's a little harder to trust the government.
