CBS News: Man Killed By FBI Implicated Himself, Tsarnaev In Waltham Triple Murder

ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS) — An FBI agent shot and killed a man after he implicated himself and the Boston Marathon bombings suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in an unsolved 2011 Waltham triple murder.

CBS News correspondent John Miller, a former FBI assistant director, says Ibrahim Todashev was “someone (the agency was) looking at in connection with Tamerlan (Tsarnaev), based on contacts they had.”

Investigators were looking into what information Todashev may have had about an unsolved triple murder in Waltham. According to CBS News, the preliminary details are that after Todashev implicated himself and Tsarnaev, he became angered when authorities pressed him for a full confession. Todashev brandished a knife.

The FBI agent then shot Todashev and received some minor abrasions in the process, sources told CBS News.

The FBI released a statement about the incident:

“The agent along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel were interviewing an individual in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a violent confrontation was initiated by the subject. During the confrontation, the individual was killed and the agent sustained non-life threatening injuries. As this incident is under review, we have no further details at this time.”

On September, 11, 2011, three young men were murdered in a Waltham apartment. Their throats were slashed, and their bodies reportedly sprinkled with marijuana.

As it turns out, one of the victims, Brendan Mess, was friends with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The three worked out together. Like Tsarnaev, who was once a boxer, Todashev was a mixed-martial-arts fighter.

Jay Morgan, who lived next door to the Waltham murder victims, says he didn’t hear anything the night of the brutal attack.

“The first time I heard about it was the day after when the girlfriend of one of the victims came running out of the house screaming about all of the blood and then shortly thereafter the detectives rang my bell and interviewed me,” said Morgan. “It’s hard to believe that three people were slaughtered next door and the fact that they probably knew who did it because all three people, I read from the interviews, were all trained in martial arts or all worked out.”

Todashev was arrested earlier this month and charged with assault and battery after getting in a fight over a parking space.
