Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Body to be Claimed by His Family Tonight

The body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the brothers suspected in the Boston bombings, will be claimed by Tsarnaev’s blood relatives tonight, just as his widow, Katherine Russell, had requested.

Further information on what exactly caused Tamerlan’s death during the dramatic shootout that occurred in Watertown on April 18 — was it Boston police bullets, one of the Tsarnaevs’ bombs, or when Tamerlan’s brother Dzhokhar ran him over while escaping — should be released tomorrow.

AP reports that the Massachusetts State Medical Examiner determined Tsarnaev’s death on Monday.
