The first suspect (seen right) in the Boston marathon bombing who was killed earlier Friday has been identified as 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the brother of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who still remains at large, according to NBC’s Pete Williams. They have been living in the United States since 2002 or 2003.

“I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them,” he says in one of the photos.
According to the captions, Tamarlan studied at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston. After his family fled Chechnya because of the “conflict in the early 90s, they lived for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee.”
Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol.” A muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”
