Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Lawyers representing Katherine Russell, the wife of deceased Boston bombings suspect Tamerlin Tsarnaev and former North Kingstown resident, issued the following statement this morning.

The Providence-based firm of Deluca and Weizenbaum, Attorneys at Law, released the statment this morning.   

Public Statement on behalf of Katherine Russell

Our firm is representing Katherine Russell and she has asked us to make a short statement.
As you know from news reports, Katie married her husband in June of 2010. Since then, she has
been living in Cambridge, raising her child and working long hours, caring for people in their homes
who are unable to care for themselves. Katie grew up in Rhode Island and has always remained
close to her parents and sisters here, as well as her extended family. She is fortunate to have the
support of her loving family now, as they, too, struggle to come to terms with these events and the
deep sorrow we all feel following the events of last week. Meanwhile, she is doing everything she
can to assist with the investigation.

The injuries and loss of life - to people who came to celebrate a race and a holiday - has
caused profound distress and sorrow to Katie and her family. The reports of involvement by her
husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all. As a mother, a sister, a daughter,
a wife, Katie deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims - students, law enforcement,
families and our community. In the aftermath of this tragedy, she, her daughter and her family are
trying to come to terms with these events.

Thank you.
