Katherine Russell pulled off a seeming vanishing act shortly after her husband, notorious Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police days after the bloody 2013 terror attack.
But she didn’t do it alone. The Messenger has spoken to multiple sources from various U.S. government agencies who say that the FBI helped Russell go off the grid.
The widow, now 34, fled the Boston area to New Jersey with her young daughter. She remarried, though she kept in close contact with her late husband’s family while cutting off almost everyone from her old life.
