May 23, 2013 (AE) - The FBI had been following and harassing Ibragim Todashev and his friend Khusen Taramov. Then the FBI questioned them both for 3 hours, but they wanted to further question Todashev for an additional 2 hours, that would equal a 5 hour interrogation without a lawyer... but then they shot him to death, just as he was about to sign a confession to participating in a triple murder with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but instead of signing the confession he decided to attack them with a knife -- no, strike that -- they now deny the knife attack happened.
I wonder if they read Todashev his "Miranda Warning" before questioning him for 5 hours??? After all, none of the evidence obtained during such an interrogation would be admissible in court without first giving him the "Miranda Warning"... see my previous article here.
Maybe the unsigned confession letter will be enough... or perhaps they'll find a 'Martyr Note' scrawled on his bathroom wall, or maybe inside a boat if he owns one... see my previous article here.
Either way, the advice of "don't talk to the FBI, it will lead to no good" would be very wise... see my next article here.
2013.5.22 An FBI Agent Shot & Killed A Tamerlan Tsarnaev Acquaintance (bostonmagazine.com):
Todashev’s friend, Khusen Taramov, spoke to several local news stations Wednesday, saying the FBI had questioned him and Todashev for three hours on Tuesday and that the FBI had followed both of them more than once since the marathon bombing. The questioning seems like part of the FBI’s broader effort to track down other Chechan immigrants who knew the Tsarnaevs to test the theory that they grew radical on their own and without influence from fellow U.S. residents. ...
2013.5.22 Ibragim Todashev, Questioned In Connection With Marathon Bombings, Shot & Killed By FBI Agent (riaalterego, youtube.com):
NBC News reports that an FBI agent shot and killed a man who had been interviewed over ties to April's Boston Marathon bombing.
The individual, identified by friends as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, reportedly knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older, deceased Boston suspect through the world of Mixed Martial Arts.
He had been initially cooperative with the special agent and two Massachusetts State Police troopers who were interviewing him, according to WESH-TV in Orlando. But at some point during the interview process, he allegedly attacked the agent, who then fired his weapon.
The station quotes a friend of Todashev, Khusn Taramiv, who said he was also interviewed.
"(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they're going to bring him back. They never brought him back," Taramiv said.
Taramiv also said that Todashev "felt inside he was going to get shot" by the FBI.
"We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent," FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier said in a statement, according to NBC. "The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased."
In addition to questioning Todashev about the marathon bombing, authorities were investigating if he and Tamerlan had carried out a triple murder on Sept. 11, 2011, in Waltham, Mass., according to the New York Times.
