Boston terror suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has a three-year-old daughter with a middle-class college student who converted to Islam, MailOnline can reveal.
Convert: A woman believed to be Katherine Russell, the wife of Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev outside her family's Rhode Island home today.
The 26-year-old Chechen who was shot dead by cops last night was regularly seen at Katherine Russell's family home in Rhode Island, alongside their young daughter Zahara.
And neighbours today spoke of their shock at waking up to see Katherine's home being raided by the FBI and cops before dawn this morning.
While a woman fitting the 24-year-old's description was seen answering the door at the family house, athough her identity has not yet been confirmed.
A man, believed to be Katherine's father, Warren Russell, said: 'We have no comment at this time.' When the brunette thought to be Katherine emerged from the house to meet a friend who had come to comfort her, she told MailOnline: 'No comment.'
One neighbour told how Katherine - who also uses the last name Tsarnaeva - converted to Islam shortly after starting school at Suffolk University in Boston, saying she believed the couple were married.
Speaking from the quiet suburb, the neighbour said: I knew Katherine was married and she had converted to Islam.

A woman believed to be Katherine Russell, the wife of Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev outside her family's Rhode Island home today.
I’m sure she had nooo idea, just like their lying mooselimb father.
My son, nephew, uncle, cousin, father is innocent...it must be someone else’s son, nephew, uncle, cousin, father.
Gee, Auntie, if the bomber had converted to Christianity rather than his wifey to Islam, you don't suppose the enemedia wouldn't be messing themselves with glee over "Christian Terrorism" would you?
No wonder she’s upset: she probably had all kinds of recipes queued up for all those Pressure Cookers hubby was bringing home....
Too bad the wife and kid didn’t go watch the Boston marathon.
probably a liberal Obama voter still mad at Bush for killing all those “innocent” muslims!
what a freaking IDIOT! what woman in her RIGHT MIND would willingly convert to that Santanic Cult!
Bomber’s aunt says: ‘He has a wife in Boston and from a Christian family, so you can’t tie it to religion...
There is all the reason to know that it IS tied to religion.
She KNOWS Islam is the reason for all this.
And this will be the mantra of the liberals. Just like Jorge Busho and, "Islam is a religion of peace."
Yeah, Jorge, so you're satisfied w/your legacy? I'm not.
He’s kinda got that Rico Suave vibe in the pic.
His wife converted to the Muslim religion and is no longer a Christian,is the aunt a Muslim?
The father is living in the capital of Dagestan which is still in conflict with Russia. The boys grew up in Chechnya which was at war with Russia, but now ruled by a former rebel who now supports Putin and vice versa. I believe one or both boys visited that area in recent years. These facts present opportunity for all sorts of speculation, plus statements here at FR on another recent post that at least one son was a Mahdist believer, which may be even more important.
Probably, so she is deflecting.
He was a hard-core muslim and he got his wife to convert to islam.
But his aunt says his wife came “from a good Christian family, so you can’t blame it on religion.”
Denial runs deep in liberal New England. Liberalism IS a mental disorder.
ping and bookmark
From a Christian family....like the wife of the London 7/7 bomber who converted, then became a fugitive and a mule after the incident?
