There is a new member of the legal team representing Katherine Russell the widow of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers. Russell has added Joshua Dratel, an attorney with special expertise in terrorism cases. She continues to be represented by the Providence Firm DeLuca and Weizenbaum, though the firm specializes in medical malpractice.
The announcement of a new attorney comes as the search for a final resting place for her husband's body drags on, and federal investigators continue to question her claim that she knew nothing of his plans to carry out the attack. Russell's attorneys say she will continue to help investigators as much as possible.
