The Providence Journal reports Katherine Russell has managed to cobble together a quiet life in North Kingstown, four and a half months after the Boston Marathon bombings for which her deceased husband is a suspect.
Katherine Russell, the widow of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is living a much more private life four months after she returned to North Kingstown to live with her family on Coriander Lane in Quidnessett following Tsarnaev's death in a firefight with police April 19, according to an article in the Providence Journal.
Russell, a 2007 graduate of North Kingstown High School, is caring for her young daughter and working for a family friend, her attorney, Amato A. DeLuca, told the Projo. He also said Russell had not reverted to Christianity, as some tabloids had reported.
“She remains a Muslim and still wears a hijab,” DeLuca said.
The intense media coverage that followed Russell after the death of Tsarnaev and the capture of his brother, Dzhokhar, has disappeared. Russell was investigated by officials but that too has quieted down. She has not been charged in connection to the two bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon April 15 that killed three and wounded hundreds.
