Katherine Russell is believed to have married and had a daughter with Tamerlan Tsarnaev three years ago, having become a Muslim following her freshman year at Suffolk University in Boston.
Ms Russell, 24, was escorted by investigators to her parents' house in Rhode Island on Friday night, where she covered her face and refused to talk about her husband, who was shot dead by police.
Neighbours said they woke on Friday morning to find four FBI and police vehicles parked outside the house in North Kingston belonging to Ms Russell's parents Judith, 56, a nurse and Warren, 55, a doctor.
"Only then did I begin wondering if there could be a link between what happened in Boston and the gentleman who used to visit Katherine," Paula Gillette, a 51-year-old neighbour, told The Daily Telegraph.
"They are a very nice family, with three lovely daughters who are friendly and well-mannered," said Mrs Gillette. "And they were so happy to have a granddaughter. This is terrible for them".
Neighbours said that Mr and Mrs Russell had been "very supportive" of their daughter's decision to take up Islam, which saw her begin wearing a veil covering her hair, in line with Muslim practice.

I bet they have a Coexist sticker on their electric car.
The parents are no doubt Liberals in the mold of Rachel Corrie’s parents.
I have no respect for women deny their Christian faith to be wed
Please God; if it is your will and intention, puhleeze let me k life this vermin....
Lie down with dogs you come up with fleas.
Ms. Russell ——————————Educated liberal Idiot.
Example of American muslim family.
Last summer on a 100 degree day, out shopping, muslim women dressed from head to toe (not a burqa)and muslim men dressed in shorts, tee shirts and sandals.
Insane religion created by an insane murderer.

One time my wife and I were at Busch Gardens near Williamsburg, and saw a muzzie couple dressed the same way in humid, 90+ degree heat... The tent she was wearing had only slits for eyeholes and nothing else. As we passed by them (women follow.. the don’t walk side-by-side), my wife whispered to the woman, “you poor thing... must be hot in there.”
They keep talking about hijacking....the Mercedes was in the shop. It was his wife’s car. He went to the shop and picked it up before the repairs were completed. Then I believe he used her VISA at 7-11. I heard the car repair guy interview.
and who said the Russells were Christian?
If the parents were supportive of her converting to Islam, they were horrible parents.
This guy won Golden Gloves for New England. Don’t put it past the media to blame his boxing background for driving him insane.
They need to find something, anything, other than the elephant.
The word convert though denotes change from one to another
Russell would normally infer Christian surname
Her parents should be ashamed of themselves
