The US Marshals Service has moved Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the Federal Medical Center Devens, a federal prison facility on a former military base west of Boston, the agency said this morning.
“The US Marshals Service confirms that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is now confined at the Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens at Ft. Devens, Mass,” the agency said in a statement this morning.
A spokeswoman for the marshals service in Washington said she had no information to release other than the statement.
Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, who was captured by police last Friday evening, had been treated since then at Beth Israel Deaconess.
