BOSTON – Massachusetts’ chief medical examiner is still working to figure out what killed the Boston Marathon bombing suspect who unleashed gunfire and explosives on police before dying during a gateway attempt.

Terrel Harris of the state Executive Office of Public Safety and Security said the medical examiner hasn’t determined the cause of death of 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev and his brother, 19-year-old Dzhokhar, are accused of planting two explosives near the marathon finish line Monday, killing three and injuring more than 180. A motive remains unclear.

Police said Tamerlan was run over by a car driven by his brother as he fled gunfire Friday. The younger brother was captured Friday night after a gun battle with police and remains hospitalized in serious condition.

    He was waterboarded to death. That’s why US authorities could not tell the people how he eventually died. The US authorities need to clean up all the other evidence before coming out with a bogus reason how the suspect died.

    there where news and articles coming out that says the boston bombing is “staged” to again fire up the emotions of the American People (just like 9/11) for the US Government to have “reasons” to do “something” (like invasion of Iraq).. that something has yet to be revealed tho..

      theres always been stories since the day lincoln got shot. everyone is always trying to find something sinister in every thing and if that happened who is going to reveal it these are the same people who are abducted by aliens and were raped by bigfoot that dream up these things

    My answer is simple,”They are the modern day suicide bombers”,not a terrorist! So,there is no need to question the cause of death.We have to think much bigger and more possibilities to study every angle of crime.
