Potential Witness in Chechen Man’s Death Ordered to Leave Country

A 19-year-old roommate of the Chechen man killed by an FBI agent in Florida last month was ordered by an immigration judge to leave the country by July 1, raising fears that she is being swept out of the country before she can provide details to law enforcement, the Boston Globe reports.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida wants to talk with Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, an aspiring foreign language teacher, about what she learned about the death of Ibragim Todashev, who was investigated for his knowledge of one of the Boston bombing suspects.

“We’re extremely interested in speaking to her and seeing what she has to say,” said Hassan Shibly, executive director of the council in Florida. “We’re very curious as to why the government’s put so many impediments, in trying to get her out of the country as soon as possible. There’s a very good likelihood that she has important information.”

The FBI has declined to discuss the death of Todashev.
