Two brothers from the Russian region of Chechnya suspected in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings are seen in a handout photo released through the FBI website April 18. The two men terrorized the Boston area overnight April 18, allegedly killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology security officer.
One suspect, shown below at right and identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was apparently shot dead by police. The other, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, remained on the loose, police said, and was armed and dangerous.
A massive lockdown of Boston and nearby areas remained in effect April 19 as officers searched homes and other buildings for the suspect.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
