Did FBI dupe Boston bombing witness?

Marathon bombing witnessA five-day hearing that wrapped up Tuesday will determine whether potentially self-incriminating statements made by Dias Kadyrbayev, a friend of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect, will be admitted at Kadyrbayev's Sept. 8 trial.

No ruling was issued Tuesday, but the hearing did provide insights into the lives of the Russian-speaking, pot-smoking college students who comprised bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's close circle of friends.

Kadyrbayev, the 20-year-old Kazakh national facing up to 25 years in prison on obstruction of justice charges, testified Tuesday that he had suspected his friend was behind the April 15, 2013, bombings that left three dead and more than 260 injured.

That's why he allegedly disposed of Tsarnaev's backpack, which contained fireworks emptied of their explosive powder.
