CBS Local reported:
Female DNA and fingerprints found on a bomb fragment recovered from the Boston Marathon attacks do not match the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, CBS News reported Friday.
The FBI collected DNA and hair samples from Katherine Russell at her parents’ home in North Kingstown, Rhode Island Monday.
The source of the genetic material on the pressure cooker bomb remains unknown.
“That could end up being anybody – a store clerk, one of the victims of the bombings – and they may never know,” said CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.
Russell is not a suspect and has not been charged with anything, but investigators still want to question her to find out what, if anything, she knew of her husband’s plans.
