Why Did the FBI ‘Disappear’ the Boston Bomber’s Jihadist Wife?
“They deleted her from a lot of the public records so that she couldn’t be tracked.”
I hadn’t thought about it in a while, but the Messenger went out and dug up this old story with an odd twist.
Katherine Russell pulled off a seeming vanishing act shortly after her husband, notorious Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police days after the bloody 2013 terror attack.
But she didn’t do it alone. The Messenger has spoken to multiple sources from various U.S. government agencies who say that the FBI helped Russell go off the grid.
The widow, now 34, fled the Boston area to New Jersey with her young daughter. She remarried, though she kept in close contact with her late husband’s family while cutting off almost everyone from her old life.
It might be understandable for the FBI to help her disappear if she were a witness or if she were at least hiding from the terrorists, but since she’s keeping in touch with the Tsarnaev clan, that’s clearly not the case. This is a really bad family.
According to a criminal complaint, Tsarnaeva threatened a woman in a phone call this summer, saying “Leave my man alone.”
“Stop looking for him. … I know people that can put a bomb where you live,” she said, according to the complaint.
Considering who was making the threats, prosecutors didn’t consider it a joke and charged Tsarnaeva with aggravated harassment, which she denies.
Even their mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, has had issues with the law. She fled back to Russia in 2012, where she remains a fugitive.

In the months before the Boston Marathon bombing, Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife, Katherine Russell, searched the Internet for “wife of mujahedeen” and “what are the rewards for wives of mujahedeen,” according to testimony in the bomber trial Tuesday.
After the April 2013 attacks, Russell, who now uses her married name Karima Tsarnaeva, exchanged texts with her best friend about the carnage at the finish line and wrote, “Although a lot more people are killed every day in Syria and other places. Innocent people.”
Katherine Russell has not been charged in connection with the April 15, 2013 bombings that killed three, left another 17 amputees, and wounded more than 240 others. Law enforcement officials told ABC News they are continuing to investigate what role, if any, she played in the conspiracy.
There were investigations into her role that then faded away.
In April of this year, ABC News reiterated that the investigation into Russell is ongoing, and added that investigators suspected her as the woman who accompanied Tamerlan to purchase one of the pressure cookers—later used to build a bomb—from Macy’s. Her New York attorney, Dratel, denies this report.
Katherine Russell became more religious after Tamerlan returned home for a six-month stint in Dagestan in 2012, her friend said.
“She became more intense about Islam,” said Crawford. “All the conversations we had would always lead there.”
How do we go from there to the FBI erasing all of her records?
“When she moved away, we knew exactly where she went,” an FBI investigator who worked on the case tells The Messenger. “We had to be able to keep in touch with her, but she was somewhere that no one else could get to her.
“At that point, she was erased. They deleted her from a lot of the public records so that she couldn’t be tracked.”
In the years that followed, Russell has rarely been seen in public. But there is no trace of Russell in public databases.
According to a law enforcement officer in the Garden State, a search for Russell’s driver’s license in New Jersey comes up empty — whether it’s by name, birthdate or address.
It’s hard to believe that she would have known anything of significance and she showed little interest in aiding in the investigation.
Did she become an American again? That remains unclear at best. During the trial, she became infamous for wearing black Islamic garb. Did she rejoin the American way of life or has she decided to commit to the Jihadist cult that she joined?
Someone at the federal level apparently doesn’t want us to know.
But let’s consider her place of residence.
Katherine Russell’s parents are from Rhode Island. She didn’t move there to be with them. Instead, she moved to New Jersey which is a hub of the Jihadist settlements on American soil.
Who does she know who lives in Jersey?
After the bombing, Russell had nowhere to go. She and her then 2-year-old daughter, Zahara, moved in into her parents’ Rhode Island home. There, she lived with her father, Warren, and her mother, Judith. She began to spend time with her younger sisters, Anna and Rebecca. “They began to reconnect,” a relative tells PEOPLE. “For a while, everyone was happy.”
But there was one point of contention, and it was a major one. Katherine and her family had fundamentally different religious beliefs. (The Russell family is Christian.) “In the end, there were too many issues,” says the relative. “They just saw life differently. After a year, she decided to move out.”
Russell moved to New Jersey, where she moved in with Tamerlan’s sister Ailina.
When last we saw, she had remarried and was wearing even more dense Islamic headgear than before.
Alina Tsarnaeva confirmed that the baby Tsarnaev’s widow was photographed holding Saturday at Alina and Bella Tsarnaeva’s North Bergen, NJ, home was Russell’s.
“Yes, she got married [again] and had a baby,” Alina Tsarnaeva said.
The odds are good that she’s still in the enemy camp. So why are the Feds covering for her?
Consider it another legacy of the Obama administration. Justice still has not been done in one of the most vicious Islamic terrorist bombings on American soil.
