Who is Dzokhar Tsarnaev? We reported the entire saga of the suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombing last night, but here’s a recap for you. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was termed “suspect 2” throughout much of the radio feed last night, throughout the shooting in Watertown to his trip to the hospital, and his brother’s eventual death from injuries sustained in the battle. As law enforcement officials have now released the duo’s names, it’s important to realize that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is his older brother.
Dzokhar Tsarnaev, this man..
..is still at large. A younger photo, to settle “Who is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?”
With the latest info we have, Dzokhar Tsarnaev is 19 years old, and is from from Chechnya, along with his older brother Tamerlan, who is 26. According to LarryBrownSports, it appears that both have “an athletic background,” and the eldest brother has been quoted as saying, ““I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them.”
Here’s a photo of Tamerlan.
And here’s Dzhokhar’s social media profile (site similar to the American version of Facebook):
It’s also possible that he was a wrestler at one point, according to this information. A few things to note from Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev’s profile, he can speak English, Russian, and Nohchyin Mott. His world view is Islam, while his “personal priority” is “career and money.” In the “groups” listing, Dzhokhar is listed as a member of the Chechen’s and “All about Chechnya Chechen Republic,” along with something titled “Ms M.”
The only photo on his account was the one listed above, but it’s important to note that he has 83 followers. It is unknown if any of these followers have been questioned by law enforcement officials, but unlike many cases we’ve seen, it appears there’s a clear path to be traced on social media.
The fact that Tamerlan Tsarnaev is on a featured slideshow discussing his inability to befriend Americans is peculiar, but is worth looking at if you have some time.
We’ll continue to feed you new information as we have it, but it’s possible that this information can answer the question just who Dzokhar Tsarnaev is.
UPDATE: It is now known that the suspect is a Cambridge resident. Boston Police is looking for a Honda CRV with the MA Plate: 316ES9. Dzokhar Tsarnaev’s uncle, Alvi Tsarni, was interviewed by WBZ CBS Boston. “I don’t believe any of my nephews involved in this horrible incident,” Alvi Tsarni said. Another uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, revealed to CNN that the brothers grew up in Kyrgyzstan.
