Skip to comments.Man with ties to Boston bombing suspect admits role in 2011 murders; shot during FBI questioning

Dead Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and another man who was killed by the FBI on Wednesday murdered three people in Massachusetts after a drug deal went wrong in 2011, law enforcement sources tell NBC News.
Sources say that what began as a drug ripoff ended in a triple homicide when Tsarnaev and friend Ibragim Todashev realized their victims would later be able to identify them.
Todashev was killed by a federal agent while giving a statement on his role on Wednesday in Orlando, Fla.
The man who was shot, Todashev, 27, allegedly attacked an agent with a knife while confessing to the 3-year-old slayings. He was not suspected of having played any role in the bombing that killed three people and injured scores more in April, but he did confess to being involved in a brutal Boston-area slaying two years ago, investigators said.

Gee, what a shame.
Now he won’t be able to say anything more about who helped him, or who he met with, or who he got orders from.
Really too bad.
Suicide by cop?
But quite likely an adherent to the anti-Christ, Allah.
Martyrdom by cop.
Really? They expect us to believe this junk? Is the FBI incompetent? They can't take a statement securely? WTF?
Aren't rookies taught pat-down techniques? WTF?
jimbo, does anyone ever get penalized for shooting dead an interviewee?
The guy was an MMA fighter and won his last fight with something called a guillotine hold (or chop, I forget which). Until last year, he was registered as such with the state of Florida. I don’t know why he wasn’t now.
In any case, he wasn’t your ordinary schmuck giving a statement and I’m sure with a knife he was pretty dangerous.
Why, do you object to having another jihadi bite the dust?
So let’s get this straight: They have in front of them a known associate of a notorious terrorist who was involved in the murder of three people with a knife, and is a Mixed Martial Arts trained fighter, and somehow the FBI let him get ahold of a KNIFE!?!?
WHAT THE HECK?
Was the FBI agent muslim?
Let’s just say it is either raw incompetence or the FBI is covering something up.
I don’t know which.
I like terrorist muzzies waterboarded before we hang them, so don’t take me the wrong way.
I just smell a rat.
“Why, do you object to having another jihadi bite the dust?”
I object to the regime murdering all the folks who would testify as to what really happened in Boston.
What did he know that the regime doesn’t want us to find out?
Looks like it happened in his home so it would be pretty easy to grab a knife.
Every Terrorist, deport their entire family and all their friends. American friends placed on no fly no guns list.
Well he does have the right to remain silent.
What really happened in Boston was that two jihadis blew up a lot of people, and I think that’s pretty well known.
To my knowledge, though, they haven’t even indicted the one who survived. They had 30 days to do it, but for some reason, Holder’s Justice Dept. just couldn’t bring themselves to do it. The prosecutor was going to ask for an extension, but if he doesn’t get it, the terrorist will simply walk out of the hospital free.
My 83 year old Mom couldn’t get in to see the VA people at the courthouse without having her sewing kit taken away first. You can walk into the FBI headquarters with a knife?
Nothing about this story is the least bit suspicious.....
His statement took a long time...he was confronted in his apartment in the early morning according to the article, and was signing a statement at night when he went berserk. And his friend who ratted him out, was asked to leave. There are questions here, but I’m not crying in my beer about one less muzzie terrorist wannabe.
I'm just agog.
"He came at me so quickly, I had no time to think. I instinctively used the FBI Death Grip..."
You recite what is publicly revealed.
I don't think anyone with a brain thinks there isn't more to it.
The public story is literally unbelievable.
True. Did you see the schnozzola on that mug shot photo?
Yes because you always allow people to have knives while questioning them. What a great espionage movie all of this crap would make.
Your suspicion won’t happen, that’s a fact. This terrorist will never be set free.
Yes because you always allow people to have knives while they are signing a confession admitting to a triple murder.
When I saw that headline this morning about the jihadi being shot, my first thought was a movie title:
The Man Who Knew Too Much.
” You can keep your knife because I may need to shoot you for too much testimony”
Marijuana may have been scattered over the premises by the perps after the murder to fool investigators as to motive.
“It’s not clear who shot Todashev, officials say, because — while he was being questioned by an FBI agent — officers from the Massachusetts state police and the Orlando police department were also present in the house where the interrogation was going on.”
“He was cooperative at first, they say, but later that night, he attacked the agent with a knife, who shot and killed him.”
That makes perfect sense. He attacked and FBI agent with a knife in the presence of at least two other armed LEO’s, and it’s not clear who shot him because of the presence of at least three LEO’s but it was the FBI agent he attacked who shot him.
So who gave the order for the federal agents to take Todashev out before he told the whole story?
Also, it happened on 9/11/2011.
I'm not saying there's not a plausible explanation, but the details are very bizarre.
In any case, the Federal Bureau of Incompetence has proven itself completely unable to handle these type of terrorism investigations, as Peter Lance has pointed out.
As I asked on an earlier thread, Where was Jack Ruby when they needed him?
The guy was ready to give a confession of sorts, and they killed him...The only real withness to important events...Imagine that...
At midnight. At YOUR house.
Talk about a knuckle rapping......
As stated here, the Mary Jane scattering was just to throw investigators off. And it did.
Why would he have had a knife after hours of FBI questioning?
This reminds me of the first Robocop movie. On TV you'd see these 30 second news blurbs with nuclear explosions and obvious coverups but no one cared, they were too busy watching "I'd buy that for a dollar", a retarded gameshow. Robocop defined the low information voter perfectly all those years ago and journalism was dead in that future.
If that’s th case, why conduct hours of investigation in his home?
The clincher is that the murders were discovered on 9/12, which is the day after... all together now... 9/11.
That clinches it for me.
I don’t know but I’m sure some good conspiracy can be developed.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Three Jews, throats slit to near decapitation, significant (pounds) of marijuana, $5,000 left, ceremonial placement of the bodies covered in the marijuana. And the locals wrote it off as a drug killing. Apparently in Boston leaving the money and drugs behind is common in drug killings. Someone missed this one, potentially at great cost. Then again, if you want to continue your career, do you suggest the possible ramifications of dead Jews, slit throats, with the valuables left behind.
