Suspect in Boston Marathon Bombings Communicates

Posted: Updated:
Boston, MA -

In a little less than an hour many Americas will pause for a moment of silence to remember the victims of the marathon bombing attack.

A week ago today, bombs blew up in Boston, Massachusetts, killing three people and injuring many more.

One of the suspects in the deadly terror attack is in the hospital and communicating with authorities.

Abc’s Marci Gonzalez reports.

One week since the bombings - the streets surrounding the scene where three people were killed and more than 170 were injured - are still closed.

The first funeral is being held - and the one surviving suspect remains in the hospital.

19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a neck wound - but we're told – is answering some questions - in writing.

Investigators - still - trying to learn why - he - and his now deceased 26- year-old brother, tamerlan - allegedly carried out the deadly attack – and what - they planned to do next-

The Watertown Police Chief says – when they confronted the two Thursday night - they had an arsenal of weapons - and explosives -

"They still had bombs. I believe my officers heroically defended that turf.  if they ever got away from there, they had a plan to kill more people."

Part of the investigation is now focused on Tamerlan's  6-month trip home to  Russia last year - and any connections possibly made there.

Prior to the trip - Russian authorities feared he could connect with Islamic radicals and asked American authorities to investigate.

The FBI did, and cleared him

With still so many questions unanswered - throughout Boston today - the focus - remains on the victims-

those now being laid to rest - and those badly injured - just starting the long road to recovery.
