Father of Man Killed by FBI Agent Sends President Obama Picture of Son’s Bullet-Riddled Body

Abdulbaki Todashev is agonized by the silence.

Since an FBI agent fatally shot his son, Ibragim Todashev, during an investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings in May, the agency has been virtually mum.

So, he thought, maybe photos of his son’s bullet-riddled body would prompt President Obama to seek answers.

The Boston Globe reports that Abdulbaki Todashev e-mailed the photos to the president and implored him to look into the death.

“I am not asking you to share my pain, but I am asking you, as the head of the great country, the guarantor of democracy in the modern world, to help the law and justice prevail,” Abdulbaki Todashev, the father of Ibragim Todashev, said in the letter he e-mailed to the White House this month.

Abdulbaki Todashev raised a photo of his dead son during a news conference Tuesday and pledged to uncover the truth behind Ibragim Todashev’s death during an FBI interrogation, The Guardian reports.

Todashev hired two prominent civil rights attorneys in Florida to determine what prompted the death of his 27-year-old son, who was being questioned in May about his relationship with one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

The Muslim advocacy group, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said it hired experts to investigate the case.

“This case is about police accountability and justice,” Hassan Shibly, the group’s executive director, said. “I don’t think we want to live in a country where people get shot by federal agents in their own homes.”
