Todashev Killer: No Wonder His Identity Was Secret

•, By Christian Stork

As WhoWhatWhy previously reported, the case is full of anomalies and part of a larger pattern of harassment against Chechen-Americans who knew accused bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Like everything related to the bombing, Todashevs killing is swaddled in official secrecy and the U.S. governments latest report about the Boston tragedy shows there was plenty to be secretive about.

Emerging details about the FBI shooters past cry out for further inquiries about the FBI itself. How could they hire an officer with such a history?

Officials refused to identify anyone present during the May 22, 2013, shooting of Todashev, a 27-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, in his Orlando apartment. But Florida State Attorney Jeffrey L. Ashtons report on the shooting did so—inadvertently—despite the FBIs request to remove any identifying information.
