GROZNY, Russia (AP) — The father of a Russian man killed while being questioned about ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says he has brought the body to Russia for burial.
Ibragim Todashev, 27, was fatally shot in late May in Florida while being questioned by an FBI agent and two Massachusetts troopers.
His father, Abdul-Baki Todashev, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he had flown with the body to Moscow and was planning on flying it to their home region of Chechnya on Thursday.
The suspects in the Boston bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnayev and his late brother Tamerlan, have Chechen roots.
Todashev is believed to have known Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a police shootout several days after the bombing.
