This morning, WBUR featured the first part of a special investigation into the death of Ibragim Todashev . He was killed in his Florida home last May by an FBI agent while under questioning about his link to alleged Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Todashev doesn't appear directly connected to the bombing, but rather to a gruesome 2011 triple murder in Waltham, which may have involved Tsarnaev.

But many questions remain about how and why law enforcement officers ended up shooting Todashev during that May interrogation.
