TORONTO (AP) — An aunt of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says the older brother recently became a devout Muslim who prayed five times a day.
Maret Tsarnaeva told reporters at her Toronto home on Friday that her brother Anzor Tsarnaev had high expecations for his sons, especially 26-year-old Tamerlan.
She says her brother was desperate when he found out Tamerlan dropped out of his university.
She says Tamerlan married and had a daughter in the U.S.
She called the boys smart and athletic, and she wants proof they are involved in the bombing.
"Within the family, everything was perfect," the aunt says.
