Boston Bombers Headed To New York To Party?
Dzhokar Tsarnaev has reportedly told investigators that he and his brother were planning to go to New York City when they got caught in that firefight early Friday morning:
The brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings may have been headed for New York to party after the attack, the New York police commissioner said Wednesday.
“There was some information that they may have been intent on coming to New York, but not to continue doing what they’re doing,” Kelly told reporters at police headquarters. “The information that we received said something about a party, or having a party.”
A man authorities say was carjacked by the brothers has told investigators he believes one of the brothers said “Manhattan” before he escaped, but investigators have cautioned that it may have been a language mixup because the brothers were speaking with Russian dialects.
It’s worth noting that the bombers did have at least one crock pot bomb device on them when they ended up in that firefight in Watertown.
