Katherine Russell grew up in Rhode Island and went to college at Suffolk University in Boston. She was from a Christian household and graduated top in her class from her high school. Her plan was to join the Peace Corps, but all of that changed when she met Tamerlan Tsarnaev, according to People. Now, she is known as the Boston Marathon Bomber’s widow. It all started when she went to a nightclub and one of her girlfriends introduced her to Tsarnaev. She dropped out of school, converted to Islam, and married Tsarnaev in June 2010. She moved in with his parents and his brother. The couple gave birth to a daughter, but the birth date remains unknown. After giving birth, Katherine worked long hours as a home health care aide while Tsarnaev stayed home and took care of their daughter. “She really loved the work,” says a family source. “I think it was the one thing she could do separately from him.” Katherine’s attorney states that she was unaware of the plans of the bombing.
