Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote a note declaring, “we Muslims are one body” as he emerged from the boat where he had hidden from investigators, according to a report based on court documents.
“I do not mourn because his soul is very much alive. God has a plan for each person. Mine was to hide in this boat and shed some light on our actions,” Tsarnaev wrote in the note, according to WHDH. The accused bomber wrote about his dead brother, Tamerlan.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev died on his way to the hospital after the bombings in April 2013. Dzhokar Tsarnaev was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in the deaths of a boy and three other people.
During interviews, court documents allege, Tsarnaev “readily admitted involvement” in the bombings and remained responsive, coherent, and clearheaded throughout the questioning.
They also reveal the bombers used powder from crushed fireworks, fuses made from Christmas lights and detonators assembled from model car parts to construct their bombs, prosecutors allege in new court documents.
