BOSTON BOMB SUSPECT-INTRO - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

BOSTON BOMB SUSPECT-VO-TAG

THE SURVIVING SUSPECT IN THE MARATHON BOMBINGS IS NOW AT A FEDERAL MEDICAL DETENTION FACILITY OUTSIDE OF BOSTON.

MEANWHILE, GOVERNMENT SOURCES SAY THE SUSPECTS' MOTHER WAS ADDED TO A FEDERAL TERRORISM DATABASE 18-MONTHS *BEFORE THE ATTACK.

OFFICIALS SAY IT WAS DONE AFTER RUSSIA CONTACTED THE C-I-A LATE IN 2011 WITH CONCERNS THAT THE NOW DEAD SUSPECT, TAMERLAN SAR-NI-EV AND HIS MOTHER WERE RELIGIOUS MILITANTS ABOUT TO TRAVEL TO RUSSIA.

THE INVESTIGATION INTO HOW AND WHY THE BROTHERS CARRIED OUT THE ATTACK CONTINUES.

ALONG WITH QUESTIONS AND FEARS THAT THE TWO HAD HELP IN MAKING THE HOME-MADE BOMBS.

JAY GRAY HAS THE LATEST FROM BOSTON.
