article imageBoston suspect awake, writing out answers to questions

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 22, 2013 in Crime
The wounded suspect in the Boston marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is reportedly awake and due to neck injuries unable to talk, using pen and paper to respond to questions from law enforcement
ABC News said "law enforcement sources" gave them information on Tsamaev's condition. The news station reported the 19-year-old suspect is "sporadically" writing out answers to questions. The investigators are asking him if there are other cell members they were working with and if there are unexploded bombs left by him and his deceased brother.
Boston mayor Menino: pipe bomb found
Meanwhile, Boston mayor Thomas Menino brought forward surprising news. He said that a pipe bomb was found Friday but that it was not related to the Boston marathon attack on Monday, April 14. "At that time we found a pipe bomb at another location in our city of Boston," Menino said on the TV program 'This Week'. "Another individual was taken into custody."
He gave no more information on the pipe bomb or the man taken into custody.
Officials have not said exactly when Tsamaev will be charged or whether he will be charged by the state of Massachusetts, which does not have the death penalty, or the federal government, which has. Charges must be laid within 72 hours so, given his condition, Tsamaev will almost certainly be charged in his hospital room in Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Cente.
"I hope that the U.S. attorney takes him on the federal side and throws the book at him," Menino said. "These two individuals held this city hostage for five whole days."
