Terrorists blew up my sons in the Boston bombing 10 years ago, but conspiracy theorists claim we fabricated the marathon attacks

On a bright spring afternoon, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev placed his backpack among children and families cheering runners on the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The then 19-year-old American city resident quietly walked away and remotely detonated a huge pressure cooker bomb filled with ball bearings and nails.

It exploded, killing 8-year-old Martin Richard and 23-year-old Lü Lingzi, and dismembering others.

just 14 seconds ago Johar‘s brother Tamerlane killed Kristol Campbell, 29, with the first bomb.

Two police officers have died in a four-day manhunt to track lone-wolf terrorists. Citizens locked themselves in their homes for fear that armed killers would strike again.

Today, on the 10th anniversary of the atomic bombing, the mother of the two brothers who stood “right above” Dzhokhar’s home-made killing machine has lost a leg and is unforgiving.

Dzhokhar admits to planting the bomb, 2015 death penalty His lawyers have kept him from receiving lethal injections.

However, Liz Norden told The Sun:

“He chose to do what he did.

“He was sentenced to death. I hope I’ll be there long enough for them to see through it.”

There is no question as to what Tamerlane’s fate should have been.

He was run over by his brother driving his getaway car to three police officers who knocked Tamerlane to the ground.

The heroic policeman survived, but the elderly terrorist was injured at age 26 before reaching the hospital.

Ten years later, there is still debate about what caused two Chechen refugees to mutilate and kill many innocent bystanders.

After hearing the explosion, Liz’s 6-foot-2-inch son Paul, 41, helped his girlfriend Jackie Webb climb over a barrier to safety on the street.

But before he or his younger brother JP, 43, could escape, a second bomb exploded.

Liz, 60, mother of five, said:

JP’s clothes were on fire, and the head spins of passers-by put out the fire.

Paul saw his right leg lying on the road, but he couldn’t move when he tried to reach out.

There’s a lot I can’t do, like I can’t chase my daughter

Both men required emergency medical surgery to save their lives, and both now have prosthetic legs where their right legs used to be.

Paul, who lost his leg above the knee, needs help the most.

Liz, who founded a prosthetic charity called A Leg Forever to help those affected, explains: “There are many things that an amputee cannot do. For example, he cannot follow his daughter.

“They did well together. I don’t think I could have done what they did without each other’s help.”


Chaos reigned after the explosion ten years ago.

There were threats of further explosions, but brave paramedics and civilians rushed to help the wounded and saved their lives.

Investigators had no idea who the bomber was, and after combing through thousands of hours of video footage, they were able to locate the suspect.

But they didn’t have the identity of a young bomber. They were simply called white hats and black hats because the colors of the baseball caps partially obscured their faces.

The FBI wanted to withhold the photos, but Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis believed the public would quickly find the killer if they saw the images.

When the photos were released three days after the bombing, the Tsarnaev brothers loaded the remaining bombs into their car and intended to head to New York to commit more atrocities.

In Cambridge, Massachusetts, Johal shot dead officer Sean Collier while trying to remove a gun from an officer sitting in his patrol car.

They then stole Danny Meng’s Mercedes and let the hostages drive the car.

Danny recalls Tamerlane telling him:

However, while they are refueling, Danny dashes for freedom and heads to a nearby gas station, imploring the attendant to call the police as he has been abducted by a Boston bomber.


The stolen Mercedes was found by two officers in a patrol car in the quiet Boston neighborhood of Watertown.

Due to a communication failure, the police had no idea it was being driven by armed and dangerous terrorists.

Officer Joseph Reynolds and Sergeant John McClellan came under heavy attack as they tried to approach the suspect.

Sergeant MacLellan states, “I thought the kids were throwing sticks at us,” but it was actually a pipe bomb that exploded under a police car.

off-duty officer Sergeant Jeffrey Priace Sneaking up to the side of the terrorists, he fired at Tamerlane and hit him nine times.

The bomber did not crash, instead shooting Sergeant but somehow missing him.

Pugliese said:

When both guns ran out of ammunition, the Rugby officer tackled Tamerlane to the ground.

Dzhokhar then drove at 40 mph towards his brother and a police sergeant.

Brave Pugliese told The Sun:

“I can see the front wheels running over my brother Tamerlane when I’m lying on my back.”

Later that night, Dzhokhar was found crouching in a small sailboat resting in a Watertown resident’s garden.

capital punishment

During the trial, he admitted to setting and detonating the bomb, but his lawyers claimed he was under the influence of his more violent brother.

A jury found him guilty of carrying out the attack and killing police officer Collier.

There is evidence that Tamerlane was the more violent half of the partnership.

Many believe he beheaded three drug dealers in Boston a year and a half before the bombing.

Some of the victims’ families believe Djohar should end his days in prison rather than be executed.

However, Liz says: he chose to show it off.

“I don’t think he was affected. He was 19. I went to that trial every day. He showed no remorse.”

conspiracy theory

There are many theories as to why the Tsarnaev brothers became radicalized.

One is they believed in 9/11 conspiracy theorist He claimed that the US Secret Service was behind the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York.

I’m in a conspiracy theory, they say I’m a liar and my sons lost their legs in Afghanistan

Liz Norden

Liz is well aware of how harmful such conspiracy theories can be.

She reveals: They were never in the military. None.

“They said they were gold diggers and lost their legs years ago.”

It should not be different from the truth.

Liz never asked for money for this interview.

Instead, she’s a mother who tried to turn tragedy into something positive.
