I’ve shown how the theory that it was on the anniversary of 9/11 that the three men were murdered on Waltham and given the significance of that date that the murders was probably done by a person who was a Muslim extremist was wrong because the murders took place on 9/12. Since that post some have suggested that the murder did take place on 9/11 and the bodies were discovered on 9/12. That may be the case and not having the evidence I can not answer that.
However the reason I don’t believe it had anything to do with 9/11/2001 is that an anniversary attack meant as a follow up to a famous event will not be done in secret. It will be publicized as being a follow up to the earlier event. If not, why do it?
The FBi though has to connect Tamerlan Tsarnaev into the triple homicide even though the theory of a connection to 9/11/2001 doesn’t follow because his friend Ibragim Todashev was killed by an FBI agent.
Without Tamerlan you can’t have Todashev. This is because we’ve been informed by the media of this strange story. That upwards of a dozen law enforcement officials
raided the apartment went to the apartment of Todashev and while there he confessed to murdering three people in Waltham.
Now here’s a strange thing from my perspective. A confession is valid and admissible into evidence whether it is verbal or written. If I go up to a cop and tell him that I was the one who held up the liquor store the previous night the cop can arrest me and testify as to what I told him. Of course, if there were two cops there when I confessed that would be better and make the case stronger. If I went into the police station at a change of shift and confessed that in front of 12 cops that would be super as far as any prosecutor was concerned. Well that’s what we are told Todashev did.
But for some strange reason that was not enough. The dozen or so cops wanted him to sign a written confession. This is after six or eight hours of continual
interrogation conversation. Although he freely admitted it verbally, being asked to write it down made him freak out and he attacked an FBI agent with a knife or something else.
The above is the best I can put together since everyone has clammed up. The FBI, the Massachusetts state police and the Orlando police all refuse to tell us how a person was killed. No one seems to think this is strange that a person can be a victim of homicide in his own apartment and no one will step up to the plate and tell us what happened. This indeed shows the FBI’s power to intimidate and control. When the Orlando police chief was asked what happened he said the reporters had to talk to the FBI. He had guys there but they can’t tell us what happened unless the FBI clears it.
Here’s what we think we know. Todashev had been questioned several times by the FBI since April 19, 2013. He was visited by the FBI sometime during the evening of Tuesday, May 21, 2013. He was shot down by the FBI in the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 22, 2013. The rest is pure conjecture. You can be killed in the USA by a law enforcement officer and no one has the right to know what happened right afterwards even though a dozen police officers witnessed the killing.
We do have some things we can learn from the repeaters who have covered the story. But they don’t seem to do other than repeat what they are told without analyzing. An NBC news article reported that an unknown number of FBI agents, Massachusetts state police, and Orlando police went to visit Tobashev. That means there were at least six cops there, probably more like a dozen.
Now get this. The NBC story was originally published on Wed May 22, 2013 4:53 PM EDT probably within 12 hours of the killing. It differed from the murder to commemorate 9/11 story.
NBC reported that law enforcement sources told them Todashev confessed to the triple homicide in Waltham. But knowing what we know today, it is clear these sources were putting out false information. We know this because the sources also suggest the reason for the triple homicide was a drug ripoff gone wrong.
The initial investigation of the triple homicide always worked around the idea of a drug related killing, not necessarily a ripoff. Drugs along with a large amount of cash was found in the apartment. I’ve read that marijuana was sprinkled over the bodies. These NBC sources must have felt it was best to continue with that theory and to implicate Todashev in the murders and did not mention the connection to 9/11.
I’ve pointed out before that one of the problems with that theory was that there was a lot of cash left around. Given the financial situation of Tamerlan and Todashev it seems unlikely they would have left money behind. Guys who didn’t need money such as big time drug dealers would be more likely to do that.
Here’s what NBC said its law enforcement sources said: “what began as a drug ripoff ended in a triple homicide when Tamerlan Tsarnaev and friend Ibragim Todashev realized their victims would later be able to identify them.”
Here’s the problem with that invention. It is clear that these NBC law enforcement sources didn’t know that Tamerlan and Brendan Mess, whose apartment the murders occurred in and who was one of the victims, were close friends. A close friend doesn’t suddenly realize his close friend would identify him. He’d know all along that his friend would know who he was.
And given Tamerlan’s relationship with Brendan Mess it is far-fetched to suggest he’d be ripping his friend off. People who knew them said there was no indication of any hostility. The true bottom line is there is no evidence that Tamerlan had anything to do with the murders.
The media has implicated Tamerlan because the murders took place on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. But even if they did they probably had no connection. It also sought to implicate Tamerlan because he was doing a drug ripoff of a close friend who he thought wouldn’t know him, which is absurd. We can only wonder what theory will be spun out next.
We are told Tamerlan’s phone number was in Brendan Mess’s phone log which would be expected; we’re told there is some DNA evidence Tamerlan was at Mess’s apartment which one would expect since he often frequented it. What we are not told is why Tamerlan would want to kill one of his few close friends. And if he didn’t, both theories to date having been proven wrong, we are not told why an FBI agent would want to kill Ibragim Todashev.
