Naked Guy Taken Into Custody Night Of Watertown Shootout Sure Looks Like Tamerlan
After law enforcement took the second suspect into custody last Friday, I asked who the naked man was that media had initially identified as the suspect police had taken into custody following the police shootout with Tamerlan and Dzohkar Tsarnaez in the early morning hours last Friday. It couldn't be Tamerlan because police tell us he was shot multiple times during the shootout with police and then run over by his own brother during his escape and killed. I was watching the local new reports being broadcast live the morning of the shootout. The naked man in the video was clearly identified at that time as the suspect police had taken into custody with the other suspect remaining at large. That story quickly fell apart when no more than an hour later the live media reports said the suspect taken into custody had been transported to an area hospital where he died from injuries sustained in the shootout with police in Watertown. Later, the police said this man was not a suspect; rather, he was just someone who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and was forced to strip naked, taken into custody for questioning and later released when police determined he had no connection to the bombings. When Tamerlan's aunt, Maret Tsarnaeva, saw the video, she claimed it was her nephew. A lot of bloggers and alternative media have noticed the remarkable similarity between the naked man and Tamerlan. What do you think?
