Mass. To Hold Moment Of Silence One Week After Bombings

Posted: Updated:

Massachusetts will pause for one minute today at the same time the first bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon one week ago.

Investigators are still waiting to talk to the surviving suspect, who is still in intensive care Monday morning.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, remains in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the throat, unable to speak.

He is in serious but stable condition and investigators are hopeful he will be able to provide some details into the deadly bombings.

Tsarnaev was found Friday bloody and wounded, hiding in a boat behind a home in Watertown, about 10 miles outside of Boston.

Some pictures of him in the boat were taken using thermal imaging.

The 19-year old was captured after police shut down Boston and the suburbs, going house to house searching for the younger of the two Chechen brothers who had lived in Boston for about a decade

Tsarnaev managed to escape after a shootout late Thursday with police in Watertown in which his

26-year-old brother Tamerlan was killed.

Authorities are now looking to question the 24-year-old wife of Tamerlan. She is reportedly at her parent's home in Rhode Island.

Investigators are hoping she may be able to provide some insight into what drove the two suspects to plant the bombs one week ago today.

Investigators say they are leaving no stone unturned.

This as Boston tries to return to some sense of normalcy. The city has a plan to gradually reopen Copley Square.

Right now, a six-block area of Boylston Street remains a crime scene.

Family and friends lined up around the block from a Massachusetts funeral home Sunday to pay their respects to 29-year-old Krystle Campbell.

The wake was held in Medford, the same town where she was raised and graduated high school.

Campbell's private funeral will be held later on Monday.

Two of the police officers who helped stopped the bombing suspects share a special connection.

Transit officer Richard Donohue Jr. and MIT campus officer Sean Collier were in the same academy class.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority released a picture showing them both at graduation.

Collier was fatally shot in his patrol car by the bombing suspects.

Donohue was seriously wounded in a chase and shootout.
