Bombing suspect’s cell: Steel door with food slot, no TV

Bombing suspect’s cell: Steel door with food slot, no TV, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being held in a small prison cell with a steel door, an observation window and a slot for passing through food and medication, Fox News reported April 28.

The bombing suspect is at Federal Medical Center Devens, about 40 miles west of Boston, for treatment of injuries he received during a shootout with police.

Medical center spokesman John Collauti discussed the conditions that are typical for prisoners like bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Typically prisoners like Tsarnaev do not have access to televisions or radios, he said. But the prisoners can read books and other materials.

Medical workers normally make rounds each shift to check on the inmates. Guards can monitor some cells with video cameras.

Tsarnaev’s cell has a solid steel door with an observation window and a slot for passing through food and medication, Collauti said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries. Tsarnaev was injured when he and his brother had a shootout with police after the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured hundreds.

The other Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center April 19 after the shootout. It’s likely that he had also been run over and dragged by an SUV driven by his younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Authorities recently confirmed that the bombing suspects were on welfare. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter, had received state welfare benefits in Massachusetts.
