NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) — FBI agents investigating the Boston Marathon bombings have visited the Rhode Island home of dead suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s (TAM’-ehr-luhn tsahr-NEYE’-ehvz) in-laws and carried away several bags.

CNN says at least one bag was labeled DNA samples.

FBI spokesman Jason Pack confirms agents went to the North Kingstown home of Katherine Russell’s parents Monday. Russell is Tsarnaev’s widow and has been staying there.

Russell didn’t speak as she left her attorneys’ office in Providence. Attorney Amato DeLuca says she’s doing everything she can to assist with the investigation.

Attorneys have said Russell and her family were in shock when they learned of the allegations against her husband and brother-in-law, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv).

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gunbattle with police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. Their mother calls the allegations lies.
