Boston Bombings Suspect Moved From Hospital to Prison - U.S. News
Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was transferred to a Massachusetts prison medical center on Friday from the hospital where he had been held since his arrest a week ago.
“The U.S. Marshals Service confirms that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transported from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is now confined at the Bureau of Prisons facility FMC Devens,” U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Drew Wade said in a statement.
The 19-year-old’s condition improved from serious to fair on Tuesday. But his injuries — including a gunshot wound to the head and neck that may be self-inflicted — were so severe he initially communicated with investigators in writing.
FMC Devens is an administrative facility housing male offenders requiring specialized or long-term medical or mental health care, according to its website. It is about 39 miles west of Boston, on the decommissioned military base of Fort Devens in Devens, Mass.
