    Thanks Bessie. :eek:hdear: I apologize. I really didn't mean any disrespect whatsoever to the victims' family or friends. The tributes dedicated to these guys are all heartbreaking. They appear to be innocent victims of a senseless crime, and I'm not sure this case got the attention it should have based on early media reports. I hope they find justice.

    I agree that this seems like the most plausible explanation. If it were a drug crime, the killer wouldn't leave the pot and the money behind. This tastes of vengeance to me. Plus the date of the murder seems to be too coincidencidental.

    Though I will say this crime seems fraught with coincidences. BM's girlfriend had been upset and throwing knives at him then she left for the weekend (and she was cozy with TT)... and then the neighbor got arrested for trying to steal pot at knife point. That was ruled unrelated, but... weird.

    The other thing that bothers me is that these were three strapping young men. Yes TT was strong, but could he really take out 3 gym rats without serious injury? (OTOH, injuries might help to explain his absence from the funeral and memorial service, which he should have attended for cover even if he didn't want to go). Maybe if the three were stoned at the time it could explain how he managed it. Yikes, don't really want to think that scene through.

    ^ The police thought two men were involved. Which makes more sense than one guy against three.

    Yet he found another dealer. Guess that did't work.
    9/11 - no coincidence there huh?
    And not take 5000$ he probably brought the pot and the $ to the murder to
    throw off an investigation.
    looks like it worked.
    Want to know why he had no American friends?

    He killed all of them!

    I totally agree. The marijuana strewn across the three brutally murdered bodies as well as leaving the money at the crime scene suggest that the murderer(s) were making an in-your-face, sanctimonious statement, like "Here's your effin drugs and money, you losers."

    The fact that the murders were done around the date of 9/11 suggest it may have been related to Jihad. Also, I read that a lot of Islamic terrorists decapitate their victims, which also suggest the murderers might have been radical extremists.

    I live in Waltham and remember this well. Someone asked a question about the murder rate here and any murder we hear of is a shock!

    So who besides TT do we suspect as being involved in these 3 murders? DT? Hmm...

    But I read that DT did NOT go to Russia at any time in 2012.

    I've seen people on pot before and they are physically weakened and in a slow-moving haze so TT could definitely have taken all 3 guys on if they were smoking pot at the time of the murders.

    Also they said the three bodies were found in different rooms which suggests to me that either they were dragged into separate rooms or that each victim had already been in different rooms. If the latter is true, then TT could have ambushed each one separately. Taking on one-against-one is much easier than taking all three against one.

    Yes, victims could have been incapacitated by smoking pot/drinking?
    In which case one man could have done it. But maybe there were more than one-original articles claimed authorities were looking for two suspects.

    Right. DT didn't go to Russia, only TT went.

    Thanks for the welcome! That was my first post, I actually registered in the CA trial then have been following the JA trial until everything happened here in Boston. Just wanted to assure people that murders are very rare in this city. I have been here for thirty years!

    :seeya: Social media news/networking, i.e., "buzzfeed" is not MSM.

    The same "social media" rules apply. (see link in previous post)

    If you refer to a comment, include a link. But honestly, if you're seeking truth/facts, it's mostly a waste of time.

    Touche'
    Maybe his friends will force the issue

    Too much has been missed/ ignored...
    Unless there is a DNA match somehow.

    New MSM

    Boston bomb suspect eyed in connection to 2011 triple murder
    (Last night I found an address for BM at 67 Inman St, just under a mile from TT's house at 410 Norfolk.)
    Authorities will investigate if links come up between bombing suspect and unsolved 2011 slaying
    (The owner of the house wasn't available to speak to the media at the time of the murders. I got the impression he wasn't around that much. The ones who would know if TT was ever at the house are the neighbors.)

    **Here it is, discrepancy over the date explained**

    Police probe possible link between marathon bomber and unsolved triple homicide in Waltham
