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.

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.

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."
