According to court documents, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote a note declaring “we Muslims are one body” as he emerged from the boat where he had hidden from investigators.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, wrote about his dead brother, Tamerlan: “I do not mourn because his soul is very much alive. God has a plan for each person. Mine was to hide in this boat and shed some light on our actions.”
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died on his way to the hospital after the bombings in April 2013. Dzhokar Tsarnaev is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in the deaths of a boy and three other people.
In his note, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev added: “…we Muslims are one body, you hurt one you hurt us all… know you are fighting men who look into the barrel of your gun and see heaven, now how can you compete with that.”
The court documents cited by WHDH were filed Wednesday by prosecutors opposing a motion from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers to suppress statements he made at the time of his arrest, claiming he had made them under duress.
During those interviews, court documents allege, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “readily admitted involvement” in the bombings and remained “responsive, coherent, and clearheaded” throughout the questioning.
