MEDFORD, MA - APRIL 22: Patty Cambell (C) mother of Krystle Campbell, a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing, and brother Billy Campbell (2nd R) talk with Cardinal Sean O'Malley at St. Joseph Catholic Church after the funeral service on April 22, 2013 in Medford, Massachusetts. A manhunt ended for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing after he was apprehended on a boat parked on a residential property in Watertown, Massachusetts. His brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, the other suspect, was shot and killed after a car chase and shootout with police. The bombing, on April 15 at the finish line of the marathon, killed three people and wounded at least 170.
