Investigators find female DNA on Boston bomb evidence, search widow’s home

The examination of evidence from the Boston Marathon bombing continues to provide new developments to the case. Sources confirmed to Fox News on Monday that female DNA was found on bomb components used in the attacks.

While no conclusions have been drawn from the discovery, the FBI searched the Rhode Island home of Katherine Russell, widow of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, also on Monday. Russell has kept a low profile since the attack and has not been named as a suspect. She is said to have worked 70 to 80 hours a week as a home health aide and was “shocked” to hear of her husband’s involvement in the terror plot, according to Fox News.

In another development, the mysterious “Misha” – accused of radicalizing Tamerlan Tsarnaev – has been identified as Mikhail Allakhverdov and was interviewed by Christian Caryl of Allakhverdov, who is now living in Rhode Island, says he had nothing to do with the bombing, is cooperating fully with authorities and has not seen the Tsarnaev brothers in over three years.

“I wasn’t his teacher. If I had been his teacher, I would have made sure he never did anything like this,” Allakhverdov told NYBooks.
