Strange twist re: Boston Marathon story

An Orlando man being investigated for alleged ties to Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot and killed during an encounter with an FBI agent late Tuesday, WESH Orlando reports. WESH has more: A friend of the suspect, Khusn Taramiv, said his friend, 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were MMA fighters. Taramiv claims he and Todashev were interviewed by the FBI for nearly three hours on Tuesday. “(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they’re going to bring him back. They never brought him back,” Taramiv said. The FBI confirmed a person was shot and killed, but wouldn't give details on the investigation, according to WCVB. "We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent," FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier told WCVB. "The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased." John Miller, a former FBI assistant director now with CBS News, said Todashev was “someone (the agency was) looking at in connection with Tamerlan (Tsarnaev), based on contacts [he] had.” From CBS Local: On CBS This Morning, Miller said the man was being questioned by FBI agents because he had been in contact with Tamerlan Tsarnaev prior to the bombing, had been to Boston to visit Tsarnaev and had a trip planned to Chechnya.
