BOSTON (WHDH) — Accused Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev called his mother from prison Monday, according to reports.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the neck, but is apparently able to speak again. He spoke to his mother for the first time since his arrest. The conversation between Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, lasted six minutes. Tsarnaeva was promised one phone call per month as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev continues to recover.
“I am absolutely fine, my wounds are healing. Everything is in God’s hands. Be patient. Everything will be fine,” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reportedly told his mother, according to Bloomberg News. [...]
“Mentally he is normal, but the child is shocked,” Tsarnaeva told Bloomberg News. “It was really hard to hear him and for him to hear me. The conversation was very quiet. It was my child. I know he is locked up like a dog, like an animal.”
