Dead Boston jihadist bomber left behind a wife and child.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was married when he decided to blow up the Boston Marathon this week.
What a loser.

The Blaze reported:
In a story that continues to have some bizarre twists and turns (many of them are documented here), the Daily Mail is claiming to have pertinent information about a bombshell allegation that’s been floating around in media: The notion that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased Boston terror suspect, is married and has a three-year-old daughter.
Tsarnaev was, according to the report, regularly seen at 24-year-old Katherine Russell’s family home in Rhode Island — that is, until about one year ago when neighbors claim that they no longer observed him visiting.
The central claim is that Russell married Tsarnaev and that the two have a three-year-old daughter together named Zahara.
Initially, family members, including a woman who the Daily Mail claims matches Katherine’s description, said “no comment” when media questioned them at the Rhode Island home. But, later in the day, that changed.
The family issued a statement tonight responding to — and seemingly substantiating — the allegations. Without speaking, Katherine’s mother handed a statement to reporters. It read:
“Our daughter has lost her husband today, the father of her child. We cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred. In the aftermath of the Patriot’s Day horror, we know that we never really knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Our hearts are sickened by the knowledge by the horror he has inflicted. Please respect our family’s privacy in this difficult time.”
Neighbors have not been so quiet, though, with at least one claiming that the FBI and police were at the Russell family home early this morning. The source gave additional information about the family.
“I knew Katherine was married and she had converted to Islam,” one of the neighbors told the Daily Mail. “She went away to college about three or four years ago and I saw her a year later and she was dressed in the Islamic style. Her hair was covered and she was wearing very baggy, flowy clothing.”
