More than 20 months ago, two backpack bombs exploded at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others. Authorities quickly released photos of the suspects, later identified as brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to 30 counts including use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill.
In his first public appearance since being arrested April 19, he entered the plea Wednesday at his arraignment in federal court in Boston.
For first one, he leaned toward a microphone and said, "Not guilty," in a Russian accent. He then said not guilty repeatedly about a half-dozen more times.

Shortly before his April 19 capture, as he remained hidden and bleeding inside the hull of a boat, Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reportedly scrawled a note admitting to the April 15 attack and saying it was in retaliation for American action against Muslims.
A law enforcement source also told CNN on Thursday that the message said Dzhokhar, 19, would not miss his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, – who had already been killed by police on April 18 – because he would soon be joining him as a martyr in paradise.
"When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," read the note, scrawled with a marker on the interior wall of the boat's cabin, according to CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

The body of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has been buried in an undisclosed location outside the city of Worcester, where it had been held for a week at a funeral home, police said Thursday.
"As a result of our public appeal for help, a courageous and compassionate individual came forward to provide the assistance needed to properly bury the deceased," Worcester police said in a statement.
Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst said the body was no longer in Worcester and is now entombed.

They met under the most dire circumstances – one man desperately in need of the other. But Jeff Bauman and Carlos Arredondo have ended up helping each other in ways neither could have imagined.
The pair were immortalized in the most famous photo from the Boston Marathon bombings. Arredondo, 52, in a cowboy hat, is seen rushing Bauman, 27, to medical care after one of the bombs shattered both of Bauman's legs below the knee.
In the weeks since that awful afternoon, the men have bonded. And in some ways, it is Bauman who is helping Arredondo to heal – from years of mental health problems.

As bagpipes wailed, more than 4,000 mourners paid their respects Wednesday to an MIT police officer Sean Collier, who authorities say was ambushed in his cruiser by the Boston Marathon bombers.
MIT students, faculty and staff, law enforcement officials from across the nation and Vice President Joe Biden gathered on the campus in Cambridge to remember Collier, a MIT officer who authorities say was gunned down by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev three days after the bombing.
The line of mourners stretched for a half-mile. They had to make their way through tight security, including metal detectors and bomb-sniffing dogs.

Katherine Russell was a typical college student before she met Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The daughter of an emergency room doctor, Katie, as she was called, grew up in a Christian household in North Kingstown, R.I., graduated at the top of her class at her high school in 2007, and said in her yearbook she wanted to go into the Peace Corps.
"The reason why I remember her is she was very nice and very smart," her North Kingstown High art teacher, Amos Trout Paine, tells the Associated Press. "She was ready to learn."
She is now known as the Boston Marathon bomber's widow.

The surviving suspect in the bombings at the Boston Marathon says he and his late brother acted alone, and were not aided by any outside group, according to reports.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev admitted to investigators under questioning Monday that he was involved in laying the bombs that killed three people and wounded scores at the finish line, The New York Times reports.
Tsarnaev, 19, said he and his brother Tamerlan, 26, hatched the plot themselves and were not tied to a terrorist group.

With a name like Zooey Deschanel, chances are the actress has suffered her fair share of mix-ups and mispronunciations – but nothing like quite like this.
While the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was being pursued by investigators during a manhunt on Friday, Dallas-Fort Worth's Fox 4 had a closed caption fail for the record books.
As a news anchor read aloud the name of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, closed captioning on screen read, "He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel."
