Female DNA has been found on at least one of the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attacks, according to a new report.
But it isnt clear if that means a woman helped suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev carry out the attacks.
U.S. officials told The Wall Street Journal there could be several explanations for the DNA, including that it could have come from a store clerk who handled the materials the two brothers allegedly used in the bombings. A stray hair that landed on one of the explosives could also explain the DNA finding.

Boston Bombing Ping!
Bet it’s #1’s wife.
Gig trouble for her if so.
Yep....but I wonder how they know it is not just some DNA from a victim of the bombing? Guess I need to read the article...lol
More important in that article than DNA is..... the older guy had contacted two suspected terrorits over there ...both got killed in battle and in raids ....this before he returned to the states....”He lost his Islamic terrorist contacts”....
Thanks..i will go check it out. Can we post stuff from the WSJ? Should have a thread of it’s own if so.
Here it is.....
Lets just copy his contacts to here as is written in the article......
Two Russian government officials said Tamerlan Tsarnaev exchanged notes over the Internet with William Plotnikov, a boxer who moved with his parents from Russia to Canada before joining militants in the North Caucasus.
...... And they said Mr. Tsarnaev met several times in early 2012 with Mansur Makhmud Nidal, an alleged militant from the Russian province of Dagestan and suspected jihadist recruiter.
The meetings happened in a mosque in Dagestans capital of Makhachkala ...known for its adherence to a puritanical strain of Islam, they said.
Mr. Nidal died in a firefight in Makhachkala last May after a five-hour standoff that ended with him throwing a grenade at police officials, according to Russian authorities.
Mr. Plotnikov died two months later, in mid-July, during a raid in the hinterland of Utamysh, a village southwest of Makhachkala.
Mr. Tsarnaev was in the region at the time of both raids but ....left Russia for the U.S. three days after the second one........ He left before picking up a Russian passport that had been prepared for him at the local migration office in Dagestans capital.
He intended to join the fighters,...... but he lost his contacts,...... one of the Russian officials said. In the end he picked an easier enemy in Boston.
oops...I don’t know?...Let me know if we can or not..might have to pull them if so.
WSJ is an excerpted and link only site..so we should probably start a thread. Just excerpt it, etc. do not post entire article.
I don’t know how to...sorry.
Ok..I will post it!
