Weekend Series on Crime: The Boston Strangler

Boston Marathon Suspects Stops Cooperating After Miranda Rights Read

After 16 hours of interrogations in a hospital, the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect stopped talking when a federal magistrate read him his miranda rights for the first time Monday, Newsday reports.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was being questioned under a public-safety exception that does not require law enforcement to read suspects their miranda rights.

Tsarnaev cooperation abruptly ended when the 19-year-old was notified of his rights.

“This was such a productive interrogation, and so much information was coming out,” Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford, told Newsday.

Oft-Maligned ATF Plays Critical Role in Solving Major Crimes Like Boston Bombing

The ATF gets its share of criticism from Congress and the National Rifle Association.

But the agency still plays a vital role in solving crimes like the Boston Marathon Bombing, the Washington Post reports.

In the past two weeks, ATF agents investigated the Boston Marathon bombings and the fertilized plant explosion in Texas.

“The ATF brings an institutional knowledge of previous bomb incidents around the country and around the world,” Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, told the Post. “In Boston, they tried to reconstruct the device, looking at the component parts and feeding that information into their bomb data center to see what may be similar to other devices used around the world.”

New York Daily News: FBI Mishandled Boston Marathon Bombing Case

The FBI’s dereliction in failing to instantly notify Police Commissioner Ray Kelly that the Boston Marathon bombers planned to attack New York was irresponsible, unforgivable, terrifying and grounds for overhauling its anti-terror protocols.

The bureau allowed well more than 48 hours to pass before sending word that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had told agents that, in the massacre’s aftermath, he and his brother, Tamerlan, had determined to head to Times Square for more mayhem.

The delay blocked the NYPD from immediately investigating whether the Tsarnaevs had allies in the city, a lag that would have been costly had the brothers been in league with conspirators here.

Surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been moved out of a Boston hospital and taken to the Federal Medical Center in Ft. Devens, a U.S. Marshals Service said, NPR reports.

“The Federal Medical Center (FMC) Devens is an administrative facility housing male offenders requiring specialized or long-term medical or mental health care. FMC Devens also has a satellite camp housing minimum security male inmates,” the Federal Bureau of Prisons wrote in a statement. “FMC Devens is located in north central Massachusetts, approximately 39 miles west of Boston and 20 miles north of Worcester, on the decommissioned military base of Fort Devens.”

It remained unclear this morning when Tsarnaev, who has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction, was moved to the federal hospital.
