FBI goes to NH home of former Chechen rebel fighter
MANCHESTER, NH (WHDH) -- New developments emerged Thursday in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation - the FBI investigating a New Hampshire man and his ties to Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
A former Chechen rebel fighter who now lives in New Hampshire said federal investigators are asking him questions about his ties to deceased bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The man says he and Tamerlan went target shooting at a Manchester firing range.
On Tuesday, FBI agents searched his Manchester home with warrants, and took his fingerprints and DNA and examined his computer hard drive.
“Never. He never talked about religious, or politics, or anything like that to me. As I said past three years, I saw him three times. I believe they thinking, like, he coming here to New Hampshire, like I tried to help him or do something like that,” said Musa Khadjimuradov.
He said FBI agents first contacted him last month.
Investigators came to his Manchester home on Tuesday with search warrants.
They took his fingerprints and DNA.
The man said the FBI hasn't told him if they consider him a suspect.
