Duly Quoted: Maret Tsarnaev

“My brother’s two boys, they are growing up so fast. My first reaction is, ‘Why the hell would they do this?’ “

—The Sun somehow figured out that the aunt of the two brothers accused of orchestrating Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings lives in Etobicoke. A reporter for the paper interviewed her today and found her understandably distraught by the news, as evidenced by the quote above, taken from the article. One of the two brothers, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is already dead. The other, 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, is currently leading police on a manhunt that has virtually shut down Boston. UPDATE: April 19, 2013, 1:50 PM Maret is now saying that she doesn’t think her nephews are guilty.
