A note by Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsaranev was found written on the interior wall of the boat’s cabin he was hiding in. In the letter, the young bombing suspect said he doesn’t feel any guilt for killing innocent people at the Boston Marathon and the victims were “collateral damage” compared with the crimes the US did in Muslim countries.
On April 19, Dzokhar, 19, was inside the boat of David Henneberry named Slip Away II when he found a pen and began writing a letter on the walls. He wrote that he does not mourn his brother Tamerlan, who had died a few hours earlier in a shootout with the police, because he was in heaven by now.
In the letter CBS News senior correspondent John Miller was informed about, the youngest of the two brothers also wrote that the attack was a retribution for the deaths the US was responsible for in Muslim countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims,” the note said.
Dzokhar had already claimed reponsibility for the attack during a 16-hour interrogation in a Boston hospital. But this note is so far the most relevant piece of evidence in the case against the young bombing suspect. Prosecutors may use the note to base their accusations given that he admitted responsibility for the attacks to investigators “before he was given his Miranda warning,” said Miller on “CBS This Morning.”
