Notices about my senior high school which is two -- not a graduate from -- as well and on.
I signed I became acquainted with him just hang around the neighborhood is a flight deck and I mean just regular college kids you know and high school kids up to hang around Lisa talk about sports is up like that.
He was really passive really a normal kid like -- -- to make a lot of jokes when we hang around we're like let's have the guys -- Cracked jokes and he wouldn't -- -- make a joke about people because it it seemed like -- didn't have Melissa's bone in his body and enemy so.
When I heard the -- I saw the pictures I thought it was -- my even joked around my friends.
-- -- -- -- saying that it looks like him and we've kind of made a couple of jokes about it but -- and -- the -- released an -- became very -- and it's actually pretty shocking to us because -- didn't think.
That -- -- be anywhere near cables of.
Like this how long did it take you to figure out then when you saw those images come out yesterday for the first time of him.
And also his brother as well on the black cat mean digits to the trigger right waiter take -- time to just talked to some people maybe think back if you didn't see him in about a year right.
Yeah I haven't seen about a year so on the -- of the -- a little bit more facial -- now.
Alma so when -- look to the picture looks like him a lot but like honest to be honest with you he's such a good kid from my perspective that.
I even joked about it because I didn't think that it would be possible that it was actually him you know I mean if I had -- inkling that maybe it would have been him.
I'll make you an animated show that means I saw the images I joked around about it last night and then this morning I woke up and -- release -- naming -- so that it actually was him.
That's that's when I realized -- -- him what name did you know him by because it seems that some people had a nickname form a different name what did you call it.
All I believe I think that his first name I don't know we called -- to hard you know I mean so I mean I don't know if that's just the way that is first and as for announced.
But -- that's that's a -- columnists are.
And we're just a couple of blocks from where he list correct.
-- yeah I believe I believe he lived around the -- you out on Norfolk street where -- -- a block away from that strategy ever -- to his home before when his -- room did you ever have the opportunity to meet his parents whenever you -- -- and -- -- -- -- -- wasn't I wasn't that close with -- like -- that I never had hung -- with him one online harassment and telling them on -- never that's a conversation about -- His personal believes anything anything really close to that so no I didn't really.
Did and I know how Stanley life or anything like that was and he and his -- -- at all.
Talk -- about his personality in high school because obviously is a ton of activities that people can get involved and there was he involved in those activities if so what they were -- Maybe just understanding about who this person was I mean to be honest and do the best description I can give them who this person was is a good normal kid who didn't want to harm anybody played you the wrestler he wrestled for Cambridge I think -- plays some soccer too.
He went to the gym who worked out a -- island did a lot of boxing and stuff like that so.
He he was there -- was a really nice guy you know I mean so it that image I wanna.
Put out of what I thought of -- like any signs that.
The -- let's say like any signs of him doing something like this I definitely -- -- them on -- Did you ever met his brother before I never -- -- -- enough that he ever talked about his brother ever make mention of a brother that he have a -- other family members that he had.
I'm no he never really talked about on his brother or is as I knew they had a brother but I never heard him mention his brother and stuff now.
It was you friendly with other people in the neighborhood here or did -- just have friends from high -- as anyone else within the Cambridge area that you knew that.
He hung out with yes yes the funny thing like I'm definitely not the only person -- be able to give you this incident you know I mean -- a lot of kids who he was.
Friends with the Israeli -- guy got me wasn't like there wasn't alone or anything like that he had a lot of people.
That he was friends with so there's a lot of people just like me who have really surprise it is -- a lot of came Christians that know him.
Because you've sat next to them before you had conversations with them before you hung out with -- before just grown up together and all of a sudden there's images the -- of him yesterday.
Being named a suspect in the marathon bombing.
What's -- reaction did you -- what was your initial reaction knowing that.
Completely mind blowing like I said I was I completely until it is so shocking that I didn't actually think that it was him I saw that image.
It looks like him yeah I mean obviously it's a little pixelated and stuff like that but in my mind it really was not a possibility that it was actually -- so when I actually found out.
It's still hasn't really sunk -- to me it's still kind of crazy to see all this on.
Cambridge street here in Cambridge an enemy it's -- Insane -- do for for -- -- that we would see around the neighborhood all the time you know me.
Give me a sense of the last year you you said he'd seen here around here all the time you got Sonoma grown up and all the sudden in the last year.
You didn't hear from him do you remember the last time you saw him what you guys might have been doing.
Conversations that you might have had I mean the last I saw him what definitely be like.
