With new developments being revealed by the moment on the horrific Boston bombing case, the father of suspects Tamerlan — who was killed on April 19 — and Dzhokhar, who the police are searching for, spoke out claiming that his sons are innocent.
First, the suspects’ father Anzor Tsarnaevcalled his son “a true angel.” Now, he is speaking out more about his sons Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, saying how angry he is that the media thinks his sons are guilty, even saying that “all hell will break lose” if his other son is killed.
Anzor Tsarnaev — Suspects’ Father Denies Sons Are Terrorists
In an interview with Anzor, held by the Russian Agency Interfax, Anzor revealed that he thinks the secret service is behind it all:
I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is the [secret] service has framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe the [secret] service has framed my children.
In another interview with The Associated Press, Anzor got extremely angry, yelling, “leave me alone, my son’s been killed!”
He explained that he spoke with Tamerlan right after the terrorist attack in Boston, asking him if he was ok. “Dad, do not worry, we did not go there. All are alive and well,” he said his son told him.
Tamerlan & Dzhokhar’s Family Speaks Out
Anzor’s sister, the suspects’ aunt, Maret Tsarnaev told AP that her brother had high hopes for his sons.
We’re talking about three dead people, 100-something injured, and I do not believe, I just do not believe our boys would do that … I don’t know them in the way that they could be capable of this.
She also added that Tamerlan has a Christian wife in Boston, so “you can’t tie it to religion.” However, Anzor has not yet been to America “because it’s not easy.”
Additionally, she explained that her nephew Tamerlan had “started praying five times a day,” about two years ago, although not a devout practicing Muslim.
The boys’ mother Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva also believes her sons were set up, she told RT, a Russian English channel. She explained the FBI were “scared” of Tamerlan because he was a leader.
“Neither of them have ever talked about what they are saying now,” she said of her sons. “Nobody talked about the terrorism.”
Zubeidat also has a criminal record — in 2012, she was charged with two counts of malicious property damage, and larceny after stealing $1,624 worth of designer clothing from Lord & Taylor.
After the horrific explosions at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured over 150 people, the 19-year-old suspect was spotted on the UMass Dartmouth Campus.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, is a sophomore at UMass Dartmouth and lives in a dorm on campus. After the alleged terrorist attack, students saw Dzhokhar on campus. When authorities discovered his connection to the university, the campus was evacuated April 19.
UMass Dartmouth Students Share Personal Details About Dzhokhar
Students who knew Dzhokhar, or have seen him around campus, gave CBSa little insight into the kind of person he is. Students described him as a “pothead,” and also as a soccer fanatic. His classmates also revealed he’s a member of the soccer team, but did not show up to practice April 15.
Two students reported seeing Dzhokhar on campus April 16 and 17 after the marathon bombings. Some students even claimed he had a reputation as a horrible driver, and people were afraid to ride around campus with him.
Though many people are posing questions about Dzhokhar’s political or religious views, students claim that he’s quiet, studious, and never talks politics.
UMass Dartmouth Wrestling Team Captain Defends Dzhokhar
In an interview with CNN, the captain of the UMass Dartmouth Wrestling team, Jahar, spoke out in defense of Dzhokhar.
Jahar said, "I saw a picture [of Dzhokhar] and at first I thought it was a joke or something and I couldn't believe it was him. It was so shocking. The reason I came here is because I want people to know that he's a really nice guy."
He continued, "Every time I see him he would keep smiling. The only time I’ve seen him mad was when he would lose a wrestling match. All the people from Cambridge — all his friends — know he’s a nice guy.”
When asked to send Dzhokhar a message, Jahar said, “If he has a gun or anything right now, drop the gun, come forward you can resolve this situation do it the right way."
We wish the continued safety of everyone in Watertown and the surrounding areas, and hope this matter is resolved in a quick and peaceful manner.

The Boy Scouts of America are set to end the ban on openly gay youth members, but gay adults will still be prohibited from serving as troop leaders. Do YOU think that’s fair?
The Boy Scouts of America are finally expressing their empathy with the gay community. The organization announced on April 19 that the proposal to end the controversial ban on gay members would be voted on by its National Council the week of May 20.
Boy Scouts Leave No Room For Gay Adults
Gay rights groups have pushed for a complete removal of the ban, but churches and conservative groups have stood in their way, claiming that the new proposal will create more criticism from both sides. The Boy Scouts of America estimated that alleviating the ban on gay adults could possibly cost the organization 100,000 to 350,000 members according to ABC News.
Boy Scout Survey Reveals Members Want Gay Leaders Banned
In January, the Boy Scouts mentioned a plan they had in mind that would give local Scout units the option of allowing gays as youth members and adult leaders. However, the organization decided to only propose gay youth after they surveyed nearly one million members in the Scout community. The statement from the Scouts said:
While perspectives and opinions vary significantly, parents, adults in the Scouting community and teens alike tend to agree that youth should not be denied the benefit of Scouting.
From the survey, the Boy Scouts discovered that respondents were in favor of their current policy of keeping gays out by a margin of 61 percent to 34 percent, while most younger parents and teens were against the policy.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with the Scout’s proposal of only allowing youth members and excluding adult leaders?

In a tragic twist to the Boston bombing marathon, suspect Tamerlan, 26, who died on April 19, reportedly left behind a wife and 3-year-old child. Read on for more shocking details.
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who died on April 19 in a violent shootout with police, leaves behind a wife and precious 3-year-old daughter named Zahara, according to a new report. The young father was wanted with his brother DzhokharTsarnaev, 19, for the horrific April 15 explosions that killed three and injured 176 people.
Before engaging in the deadly April 15 terrorist attack, Tamerlan married a 24-year-old college graduate, who had converted to Islam. The slain suspect was frequently seen at the young woman’s house in Rhode Island, according to her neighbor, and the source tells the Daily Mail that she converted to Islam for her husband. The source says:
I knew she was married and she had converted to Islam. She went away to college about three or four years ago, and I saw her a year later and she was dressed in the Islamic style. Her hair was covered and she was wearing very baggy, flowy clothing.
The source also says the couple had moved to Massachusetts, but would come up to Rhode Island most weekends — until the wife moved back home with her family, and Tamerlan wasn’t to be seen. The source adds:
She moved back home and was living at home with the baby. I never saw him again, I thought maybe he's gone away or he's busy with school.
Tamerlan & Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: Suspects Behind Boston Bombing
On April 18, the two brothers were identified by authorities as the suspects behind the deadly Boston Marathon bombing, and that night they embarked on a violent night of crime. Dzhokhar robbed a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, Mass around 10:30 p.m., and soon after shot and killed an MIT police officer responding to a suspicious incident.
Police reportedly then chased the two suspects in a black Mercedes to Watertown, a quiet residential neighborhood outside of Boston. Two residents of Watertown said that they heard what sounded like firecrackers going off, and when they looked out their window they saw the two men huddled behind their Mercedes, engaging in a shootout with the police.
Tamerlan was killed during the standoff, and CNN reports that his brother Dzhokhar ran him over and drove away. CNN is reporting that when Tamerlan was brought to a hospital in critical condition from gunshot wounds, it was discovered that he had explosives strapped to his body. He was later pronounced dead.
So tragic for everyone involved. Our thoughts are with their families during this difficult time.

The 24-year-old actress discussed her beginnings as an actress in a new interview and revealed that one of her very first auditions was for ‘Twilight!’ Can you even imagine her as Bella?
In a new interview, Lily Collins admitted that while she was trying to get her acting career off the ground she actually auditioned for the role of Bella Swan in Twilight. Of course, she was beaten out by Kristen Stewart, but we wonder if Lily would have made an even better Bella!
Lily Collins Auditioned For Bella Swan
Lily told Crave, "Yeah, one of my first auditions actually was for Twilight which is really funny now thinking about it." She definitely looks the part with her dark hair, red lips, and pale skin. However, it’s hard — no, impossible — to imagine anyone else but K-Stew caught up in a love triangle with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
She continued, "This was many years ago. I was new on the scene, new at auditioning and it was always kind of this, 'What's going to happen?' I think every young actor or actress in Hollywood starts to read some of the same material but I think everything happens for a reason and everyone who gets the roles they get were meant to. I'm a firm believer in that.
Lily Collins Plays A Half Angel Demon Slayer
Though she never got to play Bella, Lily will be joined by Twilight‘s Jamie Campbell-Bower in her latest film, TheMortal Instruments: City of Bones. The supernatural blockbuster is set to be released on August 23. In the movie, she plays a half angel demon slayer in the flick, which is a bit of a departure from her role as Snow White. We’re excited to see her in a darker role, and who knows, maybe this could be the next Twilight!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Lily would have been a better Bella?
