Gender: Male
Religion: Muslim
Race or Ethnicity: White

Executive summary: Suspect #2 in Boston Marathon Bombings

Became a permanent legal resident of the United States in 2007, and a naturalized citizen in 2012. In 2011, he won one of forty-five $2,500 scholarships offered by the City of Boston. His life took a sinister turn: Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan performed the dirty work in the pressure-cooker bombing of the 2013 Boston Marathon. It is not known how much outside help they received. After a firefight with police, Dzhokhar ran over his brother during his escape, and he was later captured on a boat in Watertown. Tamerlan died from injuries sustained that evening. When contacted, Dzhokhar's father expressed a confused narrative regarding the events, including a delusion that his son was attending medical school.[1]

[1] Interview with the Interfax agency: "I learned about the incident from TV... My opinion is: The special services have framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don't know what's going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe special services have framed my children."
