She also insisted, “My sons would never do this.”
Business Insider reported:
She said that Tamerlan, who apparently died in a gunfight with police on Thursday night, was being watched by the FBI before the attacks.
“They were monitoring him and I know that because I used to talk to them,” she said. “They used to come to our house, like two three times. And then my son Tamerlan used to tell me that he used to talk to them too, because they called me once and they wanted his number and then at such moments.”
Notwithstanding photos that place her other son, Dzhokhar, at the scene of the second Boston Marathon bombing, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva still believes that someone else set up the attack and that her son Tamerlan is not actually dead.
“It’s just somebody did this, somebody set this up, not my kids,” She said. “Whoever is dead over there it’s not my son. The body is half of the body of my son, you know what I mean? So this is not my son.”
Well, it sure looks like her son.
And, he’s certainly dead.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after his younger brother dragged him for 40 feet underneath his car during his escape from police.
