There have been a number of developments in the various investigations surrounding the Boston Marathon bombings. The Los Angeles Times reports that the gun used by Tamerlan Tsarnaev on the night of the Watertown shootout was traced by police to a gang that sold crack cocaine in Portland, Maine. The L.A. Times also reports that authorities believe Tsarnaev's ties to Maine drug dealers helped finance his trips to Russia, where he was allegedly radicalized.
Meanwhile, a front page story in The Boston Globe today reveals more about the shooting of Ibragim Todashev last year in Florida. Todashev was an alleged friend of Tsarnaev's, and under investigation for a grisly triple murder in Waltham that may have involved Tsarnaev as well. Todashev was under questioning in his Orlando home when he was shot by an agent from the FBI field office here in Boston. The Globe today revealed that agent's name.
