She was known as Katie, a pretty, popular girl from a well-respected Rhode Island family. In high school, she excelled at music and art and worshipped David Bowie. As a freshman at Suffolk University, she majored in communications, and she and a gaggle of friends modeled themselves after the girls on Sex and the City.
She thought about joining the Peace Corps.
That was before 2010, when she met the man shed drop out of school to marry, the man for whom shed convert to Islam, the man who, three years later, would leave her with a baby daughter and the threat of jail time.
Today, at 25, Katie Russell is best known as the widow of the Boston bomber. As the first anniversary of the attack nears, she remains one of its biggest mysteries how she was drawn into her husbands world, and what she knew about his plans.
In November, Russells brother-in-law, Dzhokhar Jahar Tsarnaev, will stand trial. Russell has not been charged, nor is it clear whether shell be a witness. But authorities still wonder: Was she a willing accomplice? Or a witless victim?
Russell, the oldest of three girls, was raised on a tree-lined street in the comfortable suburb of North Kingston, RI, right off a bike path called Sage Trail. Her dad, Warren, is an emergency-room doctor, her mom, Judith, a nurse.
The girls were raised Catholic and went to public schools. Katie was most comfortable in jeans and T-shirts. She was a great girl, and a good student, and normal, a family friend told The Washington Post. She was normal.

Ah yes, “Speedbump” and “Flashbang” AKA “Joker”.
How could Missus Speedbump not have known?
not mutually exclusive terms
Not really. The most important and pertinent of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's relationships is with his Uncle Ruslan. Ruslan was married to the daughter of Graham Fuller. Fuller was the top CIA strategists who developed and implemented the plan to recruit Muslims to fight for Uncle Scam in Central Asia.
The plan is similar the current operation where Uncle Scam recruits, trains, arms, and funds Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda foreign mercenaries to attack and overthrow Syria.
Exactly. How about Co-dependent Dupe?
Accomplice AND terminally stupid.
Why have the victims and families been so silent about the obvious incompetence of the Obama regime , ignoring specific warnings about Tamerlane, etc.? I know they’ve seen it hasn’t gotten the Benghazi victims’ anywhere to complain, so different from Cindy Sheehan or Berg; but is that the only reason?
Mommas don't let your babies grow up to wear Hijabs.
Does she really need to keep using air? She at the very least shared hubbys mindset and we have no use for her kind here. Send her to Chechnaya at least.
Fantastic post. Sooo important but SO few know what u just wrote.
A Muslim Patty Hearst.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
That connection you mentioned makes one wonder if the Tsarnov brothers were CIA recruits gone astray.
Any American Catholic girl who takes on islam has turned to the devil
Probably a coincidence I’d guess...
Sort of a Chieu Hoi program for muslims, eh?
Small apartment, using the same computer, on Skype with her hubby everyday while he was in Chechnya, made a call to him to tell him that the police were looking for him, very close with his radical mom, lawyered up and shut up rather quickly, her family quickly puts house up for sale.....
Oh Yeh — and of course still wears her hijab.

Uncle Ruslan might be a KGB flipper. There was an old photo online of young Jihad Mom Zubi Tsarnayeva, her husband and Ruslan wearing Soviet uniform. Maybe double or triple agent.
She has blood on her hands for sure.
I like the way the author simply brushed off the shoplifting incident when she was in high school. I think she was not the perfect little angel the author of this article desperately wants to portray her as.
