In the two weeks since the Boston Marathon bombing and the ensuing manhunt that shut down the city, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friends and associates still cannot make sense of what happened to the 19-year-old, according to a profile in Sunday’s New York Times. “Nothing seemed out of the ordinary,” said Jason Rowe, Tsarnaev’s freshman roommate at UMass Dartmouth. A wrestler in high school, his teammates said they looked up to Tsarnaev as a motivator, although few people saw what home life was like for him. By the time Tsarnaev was at UMass, his parents had left for Russia, although he never gave any indication he embraced Islam—until April of this year. Meanwhile, an independent autopsy has been scheduled for Tsarnaev’s brother, Tamerlan, who was killed during a shootout with police—and reportedly run over by a fleeing Dzhokhar.
