Boston Bombing Suspect’s Family Lists Home, Quickly Removes It

The parents of a woman who was married to Boston marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev put their North Kingstown, R.I., home up for sale the day after the suspect was killed in gunfire with police in Massachusetts. 

The family had been preparing the home to sell for several weeks, and the listing went live last Friday. The listing was taken down Monday. The couple’s real estate agent declined to comment to media about why the home was shortly removed from the market. 

The family’s Colonial home was listed for $467,000.

The couple are the parents to Katherine Russell, who they confirmed to reporters Friday evening was married to Tsarnaev and the father to their 3-year-old child. The parents issued the following statement Friday evening:  "Our daughter has lost her husband today, the father of her child. We cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred. In the aftermath of the Patriots Day horror we know that we never really knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he has inflicted."
