What does Katherine Russell know about the Boston Marathon bombing? A year later, and the wife of Tamerlan is still silent and pretending not to know. Bombing widow. Russell has never spoken publicly or even apologized to the families killed or injured on April 15,2013. She has hidden behind a veil and never explained what she knew or did not know of the plans of the brothers. Russell is raising her daughter in North Kingstown at her parents house with no visible means of a job or income. It is unknown if she had spoken with her mother-in-law or brother-in-law. Her attorney has maintained she knew nothing of the bombing plot yet there were reports she called her husband after seeing his picture flashed on the news in connection with the bombing.
