IdBeCrazyIf: This feels like a story Rockstar couldn't even make up

I was thinking just yesterday that if someone had pitched everything that happened in Boston this week as a movie script, they'd get thrown out of the building.

I understand speculation but let's not just assume it was him because of what we know he did. Maybe he did it but if they just assign the blame to him now, the real killer will go free.

xanadian: I see a lot of the "he was quiet, didn't socialize" stuff in TFA.

It's always the quiet ones.

And the violent ones.

And it's sounding more and more like he had a hand in pushing the younger one... gah. This shiat's just too sad. Feel inadequate? Go blow some people up! WTF world?

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: ZeroCorpse: I feel bad for his in-laws. His wife was brainwashed and converted, probably knows more than she's letting on, and has dragged a child and her whitebread family into a terrorist plot.

And I still say his violence and sudden slip into religious extremism could be the result of brain damage incurred as a boxer.

Because this has happened to so many ex-boxers in the past?

Some sell grilling machines and give all their sons the same first name, some convert to the peaceful version of Islam and change their name to Mohammed, some bite off ears and rape their girlfriends, and others shout at imams and blow shiat up.

But yes, taking repeated blows to the head can cause you to act erratically.

Could have been a Christian friend, too.  Or a Scientoligist friend...

They both hate drug use, too.

If it was a single person, slip some rohypnol in the drinks while partying with them, no struggle.

The coincidence is staggering and the words are printed on the Daily Mail so I wouldn't know what to think at this point.

And if you noticed, I ain't said shiat for a while now....

corronchilejano: Tatsuma: RevCarter: "Covered in marijuana"?

That's not weird or anything....

To me that screams 'You are a filthy drug dealer and deserve to die'

That makes no sense considering his brother.

But wouldn't roping him into his terroristic plot (and likely execution) "purify" his brother? I get the "I'm going down and you're coming with me" vibe from the older brother.

If his best friend, or the people his best friend was living with were into drugs and were dealing and he suddenly came down with a case of ultra-Conservativeness? That might set him off. Covering them in the pot and not taking the money generated by the illegal sales of the drugs could make sense for him.

brandent: Notice the bodies were discovered the day after the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Oh shiat, didn't even see that

olddinosaur: He left the money and the dope as a message. The murder was more important to him than the $5000 or the weed, he wanted to make sure the cops knew that.

Or there was more than $5000 and they just left some to leave a message as well. That would explain how they got the funds to start their project too

Who covers a body in marijuana and just leave $5000 laying about after slitting a throat?
The throat slit means it is a very personal thing. Not like you kill an enemy with, an enemy you can shoot. But slit a throat? That is for a very close friend, whom you think betrayed you. And as for the weed and money left behind, that leaves the only motive as murder.

Well, if a bunch of guys at a gym think so, then I'm completely convinced! Thanks, Daily Mail!

CapeFearCadaver: And it's sounding more and more like he had a hand in pushing the younger one... gah.

Pure speculation, obviously, but I wish I could shake off the thought that the younger one may not have known what was going to happen until it was happening.

Daily Fail's Actual premise:-Brendan Mess had throat slit alongside two other men in unsolved murder- Boston bomb suspect didn't attend funeral despite them being best friends- Former associates at the gym where he trained now believe it is a clue
Wat? This sounds like Glenn Beck's actually writing their articles now.

Seriously THIS premise for tying this guy to the crime is specious at best.

(Mind you, If any of my pals goes missing or toes up, I do expect to get a hard look.)

Dear Fail: we know you whore for pageviews, but this is just ridiculous.
