Official perpetrator of the Boston Bombings, possibly an FBI double agent. Died after an encounter with US police custody.
Peter Dale Scott suggests that "There is a strong possibility that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of the two brothers, was a double agent, perhaps recruited by the FBI. If Tsarnaev was a double agent, he would be just one of thousands of young people coerced by the FBI, as the price for settling a minor legal problem, into a dangerous career as an informant." A similar view is held by the legal defense team of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the journalist Michele R. McPhee.
He died after a (still unclear) encounter with the US Police.
