12/15/2013 | A BOSTON GLOBE INVESTIGATION
Josie Jammet for The Boston Globe
The Tsarnaev family came to the United States seeking a fresh start, but their dream soured long before the Marathon bombings.
Tamerlan, the eldest, started hearing the voice as a young man. It disturbed him. It frightened him, as the voice inside grew more insistent. It may in the end have directed him.
