Todashev's body flown back to Russia


( – He was once friends with Boston bombing suspect No. 1. Now, the body of the man shot and killed by a Boston FBI agent is being flown back to Russia with his family.
The Boston Globe is reporting the body of Ibragim Todashev left the United States Tuesday. His family says they had difficulties booking a flight as the FBI confiscated his green card and passport during their investigation.
It was on May 22 that state and federal agents were interviewing the 22-year-old in Orlando, Fla. Agents say Todashev was about to confess to his involvement in a 2011 triple murder in Waltham when he allegedly leapt at them with a large knife of some sort. The agents say they shot him in self-defense.
Todashev's family, however, disagrees and wants an independent investigation into his death.
