An uncle of the Boston Marathon bombings suspects gave a very grim prognosis for his nephew who was left alive after a Thursday shootout.
“They will kill him, that’s all we know. You don’t have to worry about this. What’s done is done. He is already dead.”
According to the Washington Post, Alvi Tsarni, whose brother called for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to surrender and “ask for forgiveness,” said he does not have much contact with that portion of the family after a fight caused a rift.
Tsarni claimed he had not talked to the suspects’ father since the bombings.
Alvi Tsarni was upset and angry over the bombings but also by the media inquiries. “This is America — I didn’t do this, okay?” he said. “It’s all over the news, everything. Please, leave me alone.”
A massive manhunt was underway Friday as police sought Tsarnaev. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed Thursday during a shootout with police.
