Todashev, a 27-year-old Chechen, was an associate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two men prosecutors say detonated two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon last April, killing three people and wounding more than 260 others.
Days after Todashev’s death, his father claimed his boy had been shot “execution-style” by FBI agents, who he called “bandits.”
The father, Abdul-Baki Todashev, said he believed the FBI killed his son because “they wanted to get rid of him, to shut him up.”
Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police days after the April 15, 2013 blasts. His little brother and alleged co-conspirator, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, was arrested and has pleaded not guilty to 30 counts related to the bombing.
