Fla. Officials to Release Findings in Death of Marathon Bombing Suspect's Friend

(NECN) – Tuesday morning Florida authorities will release their findings in the shooting death of Ibragim Todashev, friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The report will be released at 10:00 a.m.

The 27-year-old was killed last May while FBI agents and police questioned him.

Officials originally said Todashev lunged at an agent with a knife, but they later said it was no longer clear what happened.

Todashev's father has told the media his son had been tortured and was shot several times.

The medical examiner's report on his death has never been made public.

Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said State Attorney Jeff Ashton won't bring charges against the agent who shot Todashev.
