Boston Marathon: Suspect's friends charged with coverup

Boston Marathon: Suspect's friends charged with coverup, A May 1 report from NBC News, claims that three men who are allegedly friends of Boston bombing suspect, 19-year-old, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are accused of various crimes related to hiding evidence from authorities.

NBC News reports that Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev have both been charged with conspiring to obstruct justice. A third man, Robel Phillipos was also charged with making false statements to law enforcement officers.

The three friends reportedly removed evidence from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's dorm room after the April 15 bomb attacks during the Boston Marathon. The evidence removed was reportedly a backpack full of empty fireworks tubes.

Officials already suspected that gunpowder from mortar kits purchased by 26-year-old, Tamerlan Tsarnaev from a well-known fireworks manufacture in February 2013, was used in the bombs that went off during the attacks near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. This new evidence seems to support that theory.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev were allegedly responsible for giving investigators a tip that had FBI agents searching a Massachusetts landfill for two days. Initial reports were that the agents were looking for a laptop, but now it seems that may not have been the case.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in an April 18 shootout with police. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is recovering from his injuries in a federal medical center.
