article imageBoston bomb officials search a landfill in New Bedford for laptop

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 28, 2013 in Crime
The law enforcement officers investigating the Boston marathon bombing are searching a landfill site in New Bedford, Mass. for a laptop computer. The computer they search belonged to dead bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
It's been reported that the lead that sent them to the landfill was given to them by two men from Kazakhstan who were friends of Tamerlan and his captured brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the other suspect in the bombing.
Investigation focuses on laptop search
The men, Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, have been detained by immigration officials for violating their student visa requirements by no longer attending classes. It is believed the bombing suspects visited the men's apartment sometime following the marathon bombing. Police sources told ABC News that they had traced calls and text messages in Russian from one of the bombing suspects' cell phones to the two men from Kazakhstan.
Investigators discovered a cell phone belonging to one of the bombing suspects at the apartment of the men from Kazakhstan. A newspaper that covers the New Bedford area, the South Coast Today, said the father of Azamat Tazhayakov told them that his son and his son's roommate were simply friends of the bombing suspects and are being questioned as witnesses only.
CNN News reports that FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told them investigators completed their search of the landfill site in New Bedford. Eimiller did not reveal what, if anything, was found.
