Dzhokhar texted ‘LOL’ when his friend warned him about hunt: FBI

DZHOKHAR Tsarnaev,the lone surviving Chechen-origin Boston bombings suspect,texted “LOL” in a chilling response to a message from his friend who warned him that police was on the lookout for him.

DZHOKHAR Tsarnaev,the lone surviving Chechen-origin Boston bombings suspect,texted “LOL” in a chilling response to a message from his friend who warned him that police was on the lookout for him.

When the alleged Boston Marathon bomber was told by one of his friends that he resembled one of the suspects in the widely-released surveillance video,he sent a chilling response,“Lol,you better not text me”,an affidavit unsealed Wednesday said.

The brief interaction between bombing suspect Dzhokhar,19,and his friend Dias Kadyrbayev occurred three days after the April 15 bombing,the affidavit was quoted by Fox News as saying.

Kadyrbayev was among the three college friends of Dzhokhar who tried to save him although they knew that he was involved in the terrorist attack,with two of them destroying his key belongings and the third lying to the police.

But little did they know that their effort would land them in jail for helping someone suspected of two bomb blasts in Boston that killed three and injured over 250 on April 15,in one of the worst terrorist attacks in the US post 9/11.

The FBI Wednesday arrested and charged Kadyrbayev,and Azamat Tazhayakov,both of New Bedford,of trying to destroy key evidences,a laptop and a backpack containing fireworks. A third,Robel Phillipos,is charged with making false statements to officials.

Dzhokhar also texted Kadyrbayev to say,“Come to my room and take whatever you want,” according to the affidavit.

The exchange came just a few hours before Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan would carjack a Chinese immigrant,murder an MIT police officer and engage in a wild shootout with police.

Documents based on interviews with the young men also revealed that Dzhokhar allegedly dropped sinister hints before the attack,telling his friends a month before that he had learned how to make a bomb.
