Father of Missing Hannah and Ethan Anderson Pleads for James DiMaggio to Release His Daughter … Um, Why Didn’t the Father Reference his Son?

The father of two Southern California missing children, 16 year old Hannah Anderson and 8 year old Ethan Anderson,  pleaded for their suspected abductor, James DiMaggio, to release his daughter. An AMBER ALERT was issued for Hannah and Ethan after their mother, 44 year old Christina Anderson was found dead in a burned out home owned by suspected kidnapper James DiMaggio. It was later determined by authorities that Christina Anderson had been murdered.

The manhunt continues for James DiMaggio, who is believed to be driving a 2013 blue Nissan Versa with the California license plate 6WCU986. Authorities believe that DiMaggio could be headed to either Texas or Canada. The FBI has joined the search for the missing children and suspected abductor  James DiMaggio.

DiMaggio, who is 5-foot-9 and weighs about 150 pounds, is thought to be driving a blue 2013 Nissan Versa with California plates 6WCU986. He has a goatee and brown hair.

Hannah Anderson has blonde hair and is 5-foot-7 and weighs about 115 pounds.

Ethan Anderson stands just under 5-feet tall and weighs 65 pounds. He has sandy blonde hair.

From CNN:

The father of two Southern California children who went missing after their mother was killed pleaded Tuesday for their suspected abductor to release his daughter.

A massive manhunt is under way for James DiMaggio, whom law enforcement authorities describe as a friend of the mother, Christina Anderson.

The whereabouts of Anderson’s children, Hannah, 16, and Ethan, 8, are unknown. Investigators believe they may be with DiMaggio, 40, the owner and sole resident of the burned home where Anderson’s body was found, along with the unidentified remains of a child.

“Jim, I can’t fathom what you were thinking. The damage is done. I’m begging you to let my daughter go. You’ve taken everything else,” Brett Anderson, the children’s father, told reporters.

“Hannah, we all love you very much. If you have a chance, you take it, you run. You’ll be found,” he said.

Um, I hate to speculate it and say it but it would appear that 8 year old Ethan Anderson is already dead and it was his body that authorities had not yet identified as the child also found in the burned rubble of the home owned by James DiMaggio. Who else could the child be found in the burned out home be? Also, why else would the missing children’s father only reference to let his daughter Hannah go and “you’ve already taken everything else?” Sadly, the dad is obviously referring the 44 year old mom Christina Anderson and Ethan.

FBI Director Robert Mueller Admits Domestic Use of Drones for Surveillance (VIDEO)

FBI director Robert Mueller now admits that drones are used domestically in the United States for surveillance. However, he stated that their use was “very seldom”. I guess it is all how one defines very seldom. So much for privacy. I am sure this is Constitutional as well. So is the answer that the FBI, NSA, CIA, DEA, ATF, etc. can do anything that they damn well please when it comes to snooping on all Americans under the guise that it protects us from terrorism? Food for thought America, if it takes us becoming a police state to protect us from terrorists, the terrorist have won.

The FBI uses drones for domestic surveillance purposes, the head of the agency told Congress early Wednesday.

Robert Mueller, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, confirmed to lawmakers that the FBI owns several unmanned aerial vehicles, but has not adopted any strict policies or guidelines yet to govern the use of the controversial aircraft.

“Does the FBI use drones for surveillance on US soil?” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) asked Mr. Mueller during an oversight hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Yes,” Mueller responded bluntly, adding that the FBI’s operation of drones is “very seldom.”

Man Shot Dead (Ibragim Todashev) by FBI agent Reportedly Knew Boston Bombing Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Man shot and killed over night may have had connection to Boston bombing suspects …

FOX News is reporting that a man was shot dead by an FBI agent early Wednesday morning in Orlando, Florida who supposedly was connected with the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  The Orlando Sentinel reports, FBI officials have confirmed that a man died while one of its agents was “conducting official duties.” WESH is reporting special agent was interviewing the suspect regarding his connections to bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and other extremists. The shooting happened overnight in the Windhover apartment complex off Peregrine Avenue near Kirkman and Vineland roads.


Orange County Jail – Ibragim Todashev

A man who was shot dead by an FBI agent late Tuesday night in Orlando knew one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, a man identified as friend of the victim said Wednesday.

The agent encountered the man while conducting official duties, agent Dave Couvertier said in a statement.

A man at the scene on Peregrine Avenue near Kirkman and Vineland roads who identified himself as a friend of the victim said the man knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother suspected in the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured more than 260.

Khusen Taramov said he and his friend had no connection with the Boston bombings, but the FBI had been questioning them since then.

“He used to talk on the phone with him [Tsarnaev],” Taramov said of his friend. “They talked last time a month ago. After the bombing, I couldn’t believe it,” he said.

NICOLE PESECKY : I’m Nicole Pesecky live in Orlando following breaking news in an FBI related shooting that happened here at this apartment complex early this morning. We do just have new information from the FBI. Confirming that the suspect killed here was someone they were looking at in connection with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, based on contact that they, that he had. They say it is possible that when he tried to leave to go back home from Chechnya, which is where his friends say he is from. He possibly found himself on the no-fly list and had to return home, and he may have been angry because of that. His friends tell me that flight was booked for yesterday and he did cancel that flight and wasn’t able to return home to Chechnya to visit yesterday. (more)

Orlando Sentinel: Friend: Orlando man killed by FBI agent was questioned in Boston Marathon bombings.

That man, Khusn Taramiv, thinks it was his friend — Ibragim Todashev — who was shot this morning in the 6000 block of Peregrine Avenue in Orlando.

Todashev, 27, was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office on May 4 and charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm

Taramiv told several television outlets his friend was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were mixed martial-arts fighters.

WESH: Orlando man killed by FBI had ties to Boston Marathon bombing suspect, NBC News confirms: Man knew Boston bombing suspect, friend says.

A friend of the suspect, Khusn Taramiv, said his friend, 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, was being investigated as part of the Boston bombings and knew Tsarnaev because both were MMA fighters.

Taramiv claims he and Todashev were interviewed by the FBI for nearly three hours on Tuesday.

“(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they’re going to bring him back. They never brought him back,” Taramiv said.

CBS News:

Miller reported that FBI agents went to Todashev’s apartment complex after midnight Wednesday morning to question him. Todashev had been on the bureau’s radar since Tsarnaev was identified as a suspect in the bombing.

“He had been interviewed along with a number of other people in the apartment complex, but the interest in him was higher because of a couple of factors: He was in contact with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He had been to Boston to visit him, and he was planning a trip to Chechnya,” Miller said.

FBI agents went to question him overnight after there were indications that he canceled that trip, Miller said.

“In the encounter in the apartment, something went wrong,” Miller said.


Trenton, NJ Hostage Standoff Over: 38 Year Old Suspect Gerald Tyrone Murphy Shot to Death by Officers

Hostage standoff in Trenton, NJ is over with some disturbing preliminary findings …

The hostage stand off in Trenton, NJ came to an end early Sunday morning when officers shot and killed 38 year old suspect Gerald Tyrone Murphy. In the end after this 36 hour standoff, three are dead, including the hostage taker, 44 year old Carmelita Stevens, the mother of the children, and a young boy about 13 years old. According to police, a preliminary investigation found that Carmelita Stevens and her son were killed approximately two weeks ago.  Also killed was the suspect, identified as Gerald “Skip” Murphy.  Three children were rescued from the home, a 4-year old boy, and 16  and 18 year-old girls, who are being treated at a local hospital.

Police say the bodies of a woman and a 13-year-old boy have been found after a days-long standoff in New Jersey, and a suspect was killed in the rescue of three children inside the home.

Authorities said at a news conference Sunday that officers stormed the house and shot 38-year-old Gerald Tyrone Murphy because he was threatening one of the children. Murphy later died of his injuries.

The standoff ended at 3:45 a.m. Sunday, about 37 hours after it began. Murphy had been holed-up in a two-story red brick house in South Trenton since Friday afternoon.

Boston Marathon Bomb DNA Does Not Match Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Wife, Al-Qaeda Magazine & Other Jihadist Material Found on Her Computer … But FBI Still Wants to Chat, but Katherine Russell Has Stopped Talking

CBS News reports that the female DNA and finger prints found on the bomb fragments from the Boston Marathon bombing does not match that of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife, Katherine Russell. The source of the genetic material on the pressure cooker bomb remains unknown. However, authorities still want to chat with the wife of the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect. Katherine Russell is not considered a suspect and has not been charged with anything, but investigators still want to question her to find out what, if anything, of her husband, of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s, plans. But now Russell has stopped talking and is no longer cooperation with police. All the signs of an innocent person with nothing to hide.

That could end up being anybody – a store clerk, one of the victims of the bombings – and they may never know,” said CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

Russell is not a suspect and has not been charged with anything, but investigators still want to question her to find out what, if anything, she knew of her husband’s plans.

Miller said since the FBI’s visit Monday, she’s basically stopped talking.

Authorities are continuing to focus on the widow of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev after finding al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine and other radical Islamist material on her computer. Because every law abiding, America loving Muslim hangs out reading  al-Qaeda’s mags and reads radicals Islamist material and she just never knew what he was doing.

Federal law enforcement officials are sharpening their focus on the widow of the dead suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing after finding al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine and other radical Islamist material on her computer, according to law enforcement officials.

The probe of the computer belonging to Katherine Russell, 24, widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is part of the effort by investigators to determine whether Russell knew anything about the April 15 bombing plot or helped her husband and his brother, Dzhokhar, hide from authorities, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.

Russians Wiretap Recorded Tamerlan Tsarnaev Talking Jihad with His Mother Zubeidat Tsarnaeva

The Russians secretly recorded in a wiretap Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussing Jihad with his mother Zubeidat Tsarnaeva. Russian authorities had previously turned over information to the United States that it had on Tamerlan and his mother. The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens who emigrated from southern Russia to the Boston area over the past 11 years. However, they did not turn over this wiretap. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva were on US terror watch lists and questioned by the FBI, yet on May 1, 2013 Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhohkar, detonated two homemade bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. The question remains, why did  Vladmir Putin and the Russians not provide this piece of information when warning the US about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s extremists actions? We will never know if the FBI would have acted on such intel or whether it would have prevented the bombing. Then again, we do not know if it would have either.

Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.

In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.

The conversations are significant because, had they been revealed earlier, they might have been enough evidence for the FBI to initiate a more thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev family.

As it was, Russian authorities told the FBI only that they had concerns that Tamerlan and his mother were religious extremists. With no additional information, the FBI conducted a limited inquiry and closed the case in June 2011.

In early 2011, the Russian FSB internal security service intercepted a conversation between Tamerlan and his mother vaguely discussing jihad, according to U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation with reporters.

The two discussed the possibility of Tamerlan going to Palestine, but he told his mother he didn’t speak the language there, according to the officials, who reviewed the information Russia shared with the U.S.

As reported at CBS News, in another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case.

Why Attorney General Eric Holder Initiate the Legal Process of Miranda for Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to Stop Talking to FBI and Lawyer-Up? … District Court Judge Marianne Bowler Arrived at the Hospital & Reads Terrorist Miranda Rights (VIDEO)

There is still a war on terror, isn’t there?

FOX news Megyn Kelly was shocked and astonished at the revelation as are many Americans as to how and why the only remaining suspect,  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, of the Boston Marathon bomber was read his Miranda Rights … FBI Was ‘Shocked’ to See Judge ‘Waltz’ in and Give Suspect Miranda Rights. How is it possible that just 16 hours into a FBI interrogation that District Court Judge Marianne Bowler shows up unannounced to the hospital room and reads the terrorist suspect his Miranda rights? What intel did we lose because of this legal screw up? According to reports, the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was singing like a bird. That was until he was read his rights. Who gave this judge the go ahead?  Watch the VIDEO below and your blood will boil. What does AG Eric Holder and this administration want to hide, the fact that there may have been foreign state sponsored terrorism and the two bombers did not act alone? The interrogation of this suspect had to do with US National Security, not whether he was innocent or guilty of the bombings. What are they hiding?

Two officials with knowledge of the FBI briefing on Capitol Hill said the FBI was against stopping the investigators’ questioning and was stunned that the judge, Justice Department prosecutors and public defenders showed up, feeling valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result.

The FBI had been questioning Tsarnaev for 16 hours before the judge called a start to the court proceeding, officials familiar with the Capitol Hill briefing told Fox News.

More From FOX News:

The FBI filed a federal criminal complaint against the 19-year-old on Sunday, and federal District Court Judge Marianne Bowler arrived at the hospital where he is being treated to preside over his initial hearing Monday, when she read him his Miranda rights.

[FBI officials told The Associated Press Wednesday that Tsarnaev acknowledged to investigators his role in the attacks before he was advised of his constitutional rights. He reportedly said he was only recently recruited by his brother to be part of the attack.]

But Fox News’ sources say there was confusion about Bowler’s timing, with some voicing concerns that investigators were not given enough time to question Dzhokhar under the “public safety exception” invoked by the Justice Department.

Two officials with knowledge of the FBI briefing on Capitol Hill said the FBI was against stopping the investigators’ questioning and was stunned that the judge, Justice Department prosecutors and public defenders showed up, feeling valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result.

The FBI had been questioning Tsarnaev for 16 hours before the judge called a start to the court proceeding, officials familiar with the Capitol Hill briefing told Fox News. Moreover, the FBI informed lawmakers that the suspect had been providing valuable intelligence, but stopped talking once the magistrate judge read him his rights.

More from the Politico:  House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers slammed a judicial process that prematurely halted FBI questioning of the Boston bombing suspect and said it provided the suspect with Miranda rights too quickly.

“We need to make sure that the court doesn’t believe that they are now in the position to intercede in that public safety administration of an interrogation,” Rogers (R-Mich.) said on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” “That’s really dangerous and concerning, especially when the FBI will tell you, ‘we weren’t quite finished with him. We didn’t really believe that we had all that we could get out of him.’”

IT IS OVER … Suspect Alive and in Custody, Authorities Arrest Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect #2 Dzhokar Tsarnaev … Residents Cheer Police over Arrest of Suspect


Boston Marathon bombing suspect #2, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, is in police custody. After a long stand off following a flurry of gun fire, authorities have got their man and the hunt is over. The residents of Watertown, Boston and all the surrounding towns can now breath of sigh of relief as the federal, state and local authorities have arrested 19 year old Dzhokar Tsarnaev. Kudos to law enforcement. It is quite remarkable if one thinks about it. Just 4 days ago, Monday, on Patriots Day two bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed, 8 year old Martin Richard`, 29 year old Krystle Campbell and Boston University Chinese graduate student Lu Lingzi  and over 176 injured, some severely. Tonight, we have one suspect in custody and another won’t be down for breakfast. KUDOS to the hard work of law enforcement … a job well done.

From NBC News: “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won,” the Boston Police Department said on its Twitter account. The public cheers the police

The Boston Marathon bombing suspect was captured wounded but alive Friday night after police found him in a boat in a suburban backyard following a bloody rampage and a daylong manhunt, law enforcement sources said.

The arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ended five days of terror from the double bombing at the marathon finish line, which killed three people, wounded 176 and left the city of Boston on edge.

“We got him,” Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted.

“CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won,” the Boston Police Department said on its Twitter account.

Cops cheered as the suspect was taken into custody in Watertown, Mass. just before 9 p.m., and residents flooded the streets, some chanting, “USA!”


Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Boston Marathon Suspect #2 Reported Down at 67 Franklin Street in Watertown, MA … Now Reported Still Alive, Hiding in a Boat in Back Yard (Update: Suspect in Custody)

BREAKING NEWS: Twenty minutes after tonight’s Boston bombing press conference, a flurry of shots fired were fired in Watertown, Massachusetts.  There are conflicting resorts from sources. Some are saying that the suspect is down. Other are saying that the suspect is cornered and hiding in a boat in the back yard of 67 Franklin Street in Watertown. It is being confirmed that the suspect is alive, but wounded in the boat in the back yard of this property.  It was reported that 20 to 30 shots were fired by police; however, now there is quiet. How ironic, at tonight’s news conference, the authorities told the public that they were sorry they could not find and arrest the suspect #2 following last nights shoot out.  Then, just 20 minutes later, all that changed. Kudos to a vigilant public.  According to reports, the shed and the boat at this location had been searched earlier, but a woman noticed a door to it had been opened, saw blood and called police. She may have just ended the search for suspect #2 by her actions.

Do you know what that sound is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?  Its the sound of inevitability.

WITNESS VIDEO – Boston Suspect #2 Shot in Boat in Watertown Backyard

A barrage of gunshots erupted in Watertown, Mass., shortly after 7 p.m. Friday, with preliminary reports indicating that police had finally cornered Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.

The flurry of activity came less than an hour after Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ended a Boston-area lockdown early Friday evening after a massive, day-long search of suburban Watertown, which seemingly failed to flush out the teenager.

Shortly after the gunshots, media reports indicated a body had been found in a boat or canoe in a residential backyard. but that had yet to be confirmed by police.

It’s only a matter of time for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev … we will refer to suspect #2 as NEXT

UPDATE I: Suspect #2 is in a standoff with police following the gunfire at 67 Franklin Ave.

UPDATE II: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect # 2 is surrounded by police. SWAT is about to send a robot in to check whether the suspect is still alive and whether there are any explosive devices.

The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is believed to be “surrounded” after gunfire broke out from a boat or shed behind a house in the Watertown section of Boston.

Sources told Fox News a suspect was “down,” but later said he was alive and surrounded. A neighbor described the sound of as many as 30 shots as akin to “a roll of firecrackers shooting off,” and said blood was found on the door of a shed, or on a trailered boat near it behind a home on Franklin Street.

“All hell broke loose,” the neighbor told a MyFox Boston reporter.

Boston Marathon Bombing Person of Interest’s Apartment Searched on Ocean Avenue in Revere, MA

As reported at CBS News, Massachusetts State Police confirm that a search warrant related to the probe in the Boston Marathon bombing was served Monday night in Revere, Massachusetts. Law enforcement officers investigating the Boston marathon bombings searched the suburban Revere apartment of the Saudi national who is being questioned in connection with the double bombing attack yesterday on Patriot’s Day at the end of the Boston Marathon that has killed three people and injured over 150, many severely. Obviously, there must have been some connection as to why investigators were allowed to gain a search warrant. However, CNN is reporting that according to a federal law official, the search took place with consent, so no search warrant was needed. The fog of news.  Authorities are not saying if they gathered anything of any importance in their search; however, they better not have if they did.

 Boston News, Weather, Sports | FOX 25 | MyFoxBoston


Some investigators were seen leaving the apartment building early Tuesday carrying brown paper bags, plastic trash bags and a duffel bag.

WBZ says the search lasted nine hours. The Revere Fire Department wrote on its Facebook page it pertained to “a person of interest.”

Two men were questioned by federal agents in the lobby overnight and handed over their passports before they were allowed to go upstairs, WBZ reports.

Miller says the man was being treated for burns on his hands, and authorities suggest he may be in the U.S. on a student visa.

UPDATE I: The search warrant was executed at 5th floor of the Ocean Shores Tower apartment complex located at 364 Ocean Ave in Revere, MA. 

The Gateway Pundit has the list of those who reside at the apartment complex that was searched by police.

UPDATE II: As reported at the Daily News, a law student who lives at the Ocean Shores Tower complex,  home to many college students,  said authorities raided a fifth floor apartment beginning around 7:30 p.m.
