Boston Marathon Bombings Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Tells Mother He’s Innocent

The one living suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has recovered enough from his injuries to begin proclaiming his innocence.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, spoke to his mother last week on the phone and assured her that he was innocent. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva said that it was the first time she had spoken to her son since the bombings last month. Her other son, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed by police during a shootout.

According to Zubeidat, Dzhokhar told her he was getting better but that he was having a tough time figuring out what had happened to him.

"He didn't hold back his emotions either, as if he were screaming to the whole world: What is this? What's happening?," she said. "I could just feel that he was being driven crazy by the unfairness that happened to us, that they killed our innocent Tamerlan.”

Anzor Tsarnaev also believes that his sons are innocent of the horrific crimes they have been accused of and is still holding out hope that Dzhokhar will eventually be exonerated, My Fox8 reported.

"All I can do is pray to God and hope that one day fairness will win out, our children will be cleared, and we will at least get Dzhokhar back, crippled, but at least alive," he said.

It has reported that the Tsarnaevs were planning to turn their old home into a dentist's office, so that Dzhokhar would have somewhere to work when he returned from the U.S. He was a dental hygiene student.
