Father of Boston Bombing Suspect's Friend Writes Obama

MOSCOW,– The father of Ibragim Todashev, who was shot dead by law enforcement officials in the United States while being questioned by investigators over the Boston Marathon bombing, has written to US President Barack Obama to seek help finding out what happened to his son, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

Abdulbaki Todashev says in his letter from Russia that his son knew dead marathon suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev through boxing, but had no connection to the bombing or any other crime, according to the report.
Todashev, 27, was shot dead while being questioned by the FBI and Massachusetts State Police at his home in Florida on May 22.

His father says in the letter to the president that his son voluntarily went to an FBI office in Orlando to speak with agents four times before they showed up at his apartment.

Attorney Barry Cohen said Monday the elder Todashev fears a cover-up and wrote to Obama as one father to another to make sure that does not happen.

An Orlando prosecutor is investigating the Todashev's death.
The White House is reviewing the letter, AP said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, and his elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, both ethnic Chechens, are accused of killing three people and injuring more than 260 others by detonating a pair of pressure-cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon in April.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in custody awaiting trial, while Tamerlan Tsarnayev was shot dead during a shootout with police shortly after the bombing.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
