This American Life investigated the mysterious death of Ibragim Todashev, someone “loosely linked to the Boston Marathon bombing.” Todashev was shot seven times by the FBI in his Florida apartment. Allegedly, confessed to a triple, execution-style homicide and then went ballistic, requiring the FBI shoot and kill him. Even more odd than this, the FBI has remained silent about what occurred.
Here is a description of the fascinating podcast from the This American Life podcast:
Last May, a weird story made the news: the FBI killed a guy in Florida who was loosely linked to the Boston Marathon bombings. He was shot seven times in his living room by a federal agent. What really happened? Why was the FBI even in that room with him? A reporter spent six months looking into it, and she found that the FBI was doing a bunch of things that never made the news.
