Report: Tsarnaev possibly linked to triple murder in Mass.

MYFOXNY.COM -

A report says the U.S. was not informed by Russia about potentially crucial information found in text messages regarding Boston Bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. 

Officials say the messages referenced his interest in joining an extremist militant group. 

The Wall Street Journal says officials told them the texts are the most important in a series of missed signals between the U.S. and Russia. But they repot the FBI, when it comes to dealing with Russia, often withholds information that could reveal sources or methods. 

Russia did warn the U.S. about Tamerlan back in 2011. The FBI did as well, but found no terrorist ties. 

Tamerlan and his younger brother Dzjokar, are accused of bombing the Boston Marathon last month. Three people were killed and more than 200 were injured in the bombings. 

Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police while his brother was captured. Their mother has said her sons are innocent. 

This comes after authorities in Massachusetts are taking a hard look at Tamerlan to see if he was involved in an unsolved triple homicide on September 11, 2011. One of the victims in the murder was his good friend Brendan Mess. 

According to one broadcast report, evidence is mounting that both Tamerlan and Dzjokar were possibly involved. But sources tell FOX 25 in Boston that investigators cannot rule Tamerlan in or out. 

The FOX 25 source says Tamerlan's cell phone was used near the murder scene and his fingerprints were found at the apartment where the bodies were found. But the report says it's not unusual since Tamerland and Brendan Mess were close. 

FOX 25 also learned that high-grade marijuana was found sprinkled on the bodies of two of the victims and $5,000 cash was found in the apartment.
