US Attorney: Former UMass Dartmouth Students Indicted For Hiding Evidence
According to the Boston Globe, two more former UMASS Dartmouth students have been indicted in connection to the Boston Marathon bombings.
Kazakhstan nationals Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, are accused of helping to get rid of evidence that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left behind in his UMass Dartmouth dorm room days after the marathon bombing.
US Attorney Carmen Ortiz's office says Tsarnaev sent his friends a text asking them to go to his dorm “room and take what’s there.’’ The two students are accused of grabbing Tsarnaev’s laptop, fireworks, and a backpack and hiding them in their Rockdale West apartment in New Bedford.
Later that night Kadyrbayev, allegedly put the items in a garbage bag and put them in a dumpster at the apartment. They were later found by the FBI after several days of searching the Crapo Hill dump in New Bedford.
