The parents of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s wife have put their Rhode Island home on the market on the same day the Boston bomber was shot dead by police.
Katherine Russell’s mother and father on Friday put their large detached family home in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, up for sale for $467,000.
The family have lived there for 14 years but the pain of recent events appears to have forced them to move to make a clean break with the past.
Within hours of being gunned down by police as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, tried to flee arrest, the Russell family home had been posted onto a string of online real estate websites.
Public records show that Katherine Russell’s father Warren, 55, an emergency room physician, bought the Colonial style property on tree lined street a quiet middle class suburb in 1999.
It has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and sits on 0.74 acres of land.
The living area coves 3,090 sq ft, it has Cathedral ceilings inside and a fireplace.
There is a large garden in the front, a basement, central air conditioning and a paved driveway leading to two garages under the house.
Today onlookers could be seen driving past the home with the real estate listings on their laps.
Asked why the property had been put on the market, Katherine Russell’s mother Judith said: “No comment.”
Tamerlan Tsarnaev has a 3-year-old daughter called Zahara with Katherine Russell, 24, who converted to Islam for her husband.
Katherine’s parents, Judith and Warren Russell, issued an emotional statement following the terror attack that left three dead and 176 injured, saying: “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 Patriot’s Day horror, we know that we never really knew Tamerlane Tsarnaev.
“Our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he has inflicted.”
