A friend of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot dead by an FBI officer last night while preparing to sign a confession to playing a role in the gruesome slaying of three Jewish men back in 2011, according to investigators cited by NBC.

The Chechen man Ibragim Todashev, 27 was being interviewed by law enforcement officers in his Orlando, Florida condo when he is said to have turned violent, pulling a knife on an agent.

“The agent, two Massachusetts State Police troopers, and other law enforcement personnel were interviewing an individual in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a violent confrontation was initiated by the individual,” the FBI said in a statement, adding that “During the confrontation, the individual was killed.” One official told ABC news that the FBI agent was stabbed several times, although the injuries sustained were not life threatening.

No suspects have been arrested in the unsolved murder of the three Jewish men, although In the wake of the Boston bombing, detectives developed DNA evidence linking bombing suspects Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokhar to the triple murder scene.

The triple homicide took place on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The victims were found with their throats slit, and their bodies were covered in cash and marijuana.

One of those killed, Brendan Mess was said to be a close friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Another victim Raphael Teken was a graduate of the largely Jewish Brandeis University. The third, Erik Weissman was a devout Jew according to the Forward, and was a devoted member of his synagogue, according to Boston’s WCVB.

    Current American political cover- ups are worrying.
    Correctness gone mad. You can’t say Jews were murdered & the perpetrators are Islamist. The Boston murder was a letting off of some crackers by Chechen Islamist for fun it went wrong many died, many were injured. Obama could not explain Jihad to a reporter, like everything else it has lots of interpretations in accordance to whoever has the use of the microphone. Its a free for all.

    I had frequently read of the “unsolved murder” of three men, and that the Boston bombers had some connection to one of the victims. However, until now I had not heard that the victims were Jewish. I wonder why it has been kept a secret.

  • Paul Barbara

    Er, does anyone really believe the police ‘narrative’?
    Here’s what a friend of the victim said:
    ‘Khusn Taramiv, a friend of the suspect, tells NBC News in Orlando that the 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev knew Tsarnaev because both were MMA fighters.

    “We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent,” FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier told NBC News. “”The incident occurred in Orlando, Florida. The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. We do not have any further details at this time. We expect to have more information later this morning.”

    Taramiv says that he and Todashev were interviewed for almost three hours last night.

    “(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 told NBC.

    “He felt inside he was going to get shot,” Taramiv said. “I told him, ‘Everything is going to be fine, don’t worry about it.’ He said, ‘I have a really bad feeling.'” t-b-509254909
    Just another innocent Chechen murdered in cold blood, is how I see it..

      “Just another innocent Chechen murdered in cold blood, is how I see it..” Well, clearly you are a fool…

      • Paul Barbara

        I may well be a fool, but I don’t believe anything I am fed by the government of MSM, unlike some.

        9:55 AM EST: NBC News is reporting that investigators “were also looking at whether Todashev might have had any role in a triple murder in 2011, in which three men were murdered in an apartment in Waltham, Mass.” This was the same triple murder that claimed the life of a man who was described by Tamerlan as his “best friend.” The grisly murder involved the throats of the victims being cut, and their bodies were being covered with marijuana. No suspects were ever arrested for the murders.’
        The whole Boston Bombing narrative is so full of holes, even Mr. Magoo could see it. Not, apparently you.
        There is plenty on the web; I’m not going to do your investigating for you.
        I wonder how they just managed to suspect the Chechens now, after the ‘bombing’? Apparently, the murders occured two years ago.

    • Bridj

      I agree. From the Boston Marathon scheduled “controlled explosion” with crisis actors which became too fishy too fast to tying Tsarnaevs to triple murders for a confirmation of guilt somewhere (although there must have been other Chechens that assisted to overcome the three…)
      Since when does US intel become so allied with Putin??? We had been fighting Russia in Afghanistan through Massoud and Bin Ladin. Tsarnaev brothers had been nephew of CIA operative Graham Fullers daughter.

      I do not believe any of narrative revealed by the FBI, MA State Police, or other officials who were present when the knife was pulled and the stabbing occurred. I am certainly not on the side of any Chechen Muslim by any means, but this story of his murder stinks! There is way more to this story and every story I have heard lately like Benghazi, the IRS, the AP, and so on, it seems someone used the same people to make up these ridiculous lies that they actually think we believe! Only the Low Info People maybe but this will all fall apart as quickly as a house built of straw when the fire comes!

  • Mainstream media is not going to pick up this story because just like Obama, it doesn’t play into their narrative of playing down terrorism and Islamic radicalism.

    • Gony Halevi

      Your comment is out of line and a lie.

    • Wayne


    • Michael101

      Joyce, you are so right, mainstream media is a joke and in my lifetime may never redeem itself! They are a complete farce!

  • Why was there no announcement of the threat to Jewish individuals in NYC by the police or the media, prior to this revelation. Is it only important when non-Jewish people are killed? When there is a rapist about there is a warning to women is there not!

    • Gony Halevi

      Because out of the three victims, two were known drug dealers. Yes. Jewish drug dealers.

    • Saidi

      There is a global terror threat against Jews and the West.

      Had you been at teh recently held NYC Law Enforcement briefing you would have known this.

      The handwriting is on the wall and no one needs be told anything in particular.

  • Steven

    As I suspected … Tzarneav had to prove his loyalty and murdering Jews would accomplish that. This shows that its never very difficult for those who were raised on the “mother’s milk” of Jew hate to kill Jews. May Tzarneav and this miscreant rot in hell

  • Edible

    Finally, there is some good news!

    Question; how come he had a knife on him while he was in custody? Someone slipped up somewhere along the line.

    • Paul Barbara

      Do you believe he had a knife? Poor guy was probably pressured to finger the brothers, refused, and was shot. Par for the course with US ‘Justice’.

      • Michael101

        Paul Barbara, You said what I was thinking as I mentioned in post above! I am certain that these lies and revelations are being prepared by the writing staff of Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert! Actually they would have been more honest than anything coming our of the White House these days! Certainly the mainstream media will never get to the bottom as it is meaningless to them.
