Muslim Man Who Attacked FBI Agent Linked To Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev- Helped Him Murder Three Jewish Men
May 22, 2013
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...
Todashev, they say, had spent some time in the Boston area, where he was a mixed martial arts fighter, and knew Tsarnaev there. Investigators say he confessed to the agent in Florida that he played a role in a triple murder in 2011 in which three men were discovered slain in an apartment in Waltham, Mass.
...Brendan Mess, 25; Raphael Teken, 37; and Eric Weissman, 31, were found with their throats cut in September of 2011, and their bodies were covered with marijuana. No suspects had been arrested in that case.

With Tamerlan Tsernaev's death and the decision to charge his brother in civilian court, there are many questions to which we may never find the answers. One of them is a triple homicide that occurred on the tenth anniversary of the Muslim terrorist attacks of September 11. While the police at the time assumed that it was a drug murder, large quantities of drugs and money were left behind at the scene suggesting another motive.
The three men were Jewish. One was Israeli. And in the aftermath of Tamerlan Tsernaev's killing spree, the triple murder of the three men, one of whom was supposedly his friend, is being looked in a whole new light...
