Boston suspects' mother - WNCN: News, Weather

Boston suspect's mother regrets moving family to U.S.

BOSTON -

Investigators are continuing to gather evidence in the Boston Marathon bombings case. Today, the parents of the suspects spoke out in an emotional press conference where the mother made several surprising claims.

The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects broke down in tears at a press conference in Russia today, saying she now regrets moving her family to the United States.

Law enforcement sources told CBS NEWS that 19 year old suspect  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev confessed to the bombings but his mother denies it, claiming investigators have not questioned him since he was taken into custody.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is under police guard in this hospital, recovering from gunshot wounds. Meanwhile, another stunning allegation from his mother; that her older son Tamerlan was captured alive and died in police custody. Police say he was killed in a gun battle.

The father of the suspects is trying to return to the U.S. hoping to bring Tamerlan's body back to Russia for burial.

The parents denied that a family friend named Misha, steered Tamerlan towards radical Islam.

FBI agents in hazmat suits continue to search a landfill near UMASS Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar was spotted after the bombings. They're looking for bomb parts, and sales receipts for ammunition.

Sources tell CBS News, the brothers only had one gun when they got into a shootout with police, and that the younger suspect was unarmed when he was captured in a boat.
