Todashev’s girlfriend talks about her weeks in custody

The live-in girlfriend of Ibragim Todashev says that while her boyfriend was being interviewed about the Boston Marathon bombings, she was grilled by FBI agents, turned over to immigration officials, and then held in solitary confinement, where, days later, she learned that he had been killed.

Todashev, a friend of accused Boston marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was questioned by FBI agents and Massachusetts State Police in his apartment for more than five hours on May 22 before being shot and killed.
