Now has box reports tonight we're tracking major developments in the investigation in the Boston Marathon attack.
First there is no word that investigators have found an al-Qaeda bomb making magazine on a computer at the home of an accused bomber.
The al-Qaeda magazine inspire contains instructions for would be terrorists past articles have explained how to assemble explosives.
Now here's the other major development sources are now telling Fox News that Katy Russell the wife of the now did bomber.
Communicated with her husband after the attacks and while investigators were trying to find him.
As far as we know she did not attempt to contact investigators.
Katy Russell as you may know is just 24 years old her father an Ivy League educated doctor her mother a nurse.
Katie high school teachers say she was a talented artist a nice girl a good student.
Our high school yearbook entry let's just let's lists her plans as college and the peace corps.
She was attending college when she met temperaments are and I have -- nightclub we're told she apparently converted from christianity to Islam for him.
And the couple married several years ago -- now she's in the middle of a terrorism investigation although prosecutors have not yet charged her with anything.
Katherine Harris on fox top storyline tonight and -- what more do we know about the communications.
Between Katy Russell the wife and the suspect.
Let's have two sources familiar with the investigation tell Fox News catcher Russell communicated with her husband -- after the bombing.
One source said it included at least one phone call with the second source describing an email.
Possibly containing an attachment which included a surveillance photo released by the FBI.
She had conversations -- -- beforehand she lived with -- she saw his change in attitude.
She's got some mud explaining to do or at least some very difficult questions answer.
The lawyer for captain Russell did not respond to email or phone calls by Fox News requesting a response to our reporting.
Our claims that Russell has stopped cooperating with authorities -- Catherine what.
More -- we know about what investigators have found on the computers.
We -- Monday FBI agents searched the home of -- Russell's parents in Kingston Rhode Island.
Leaving with plastic bags would appear to be toothbrushes for DNA testing.
Into computer that's like there's no indication that -- DNA matches the female DNA found on the bomb components.
But on the computers and investigative source says the al-Qaeda web magazine inspire best known for is jihadist propaganda and instructions for homemade bombs.
Was down by the FBI but the source did not explain.
Whether the al-Qaeda magazine was found on -- Brussels electronics.
Are those of her husband or her brother in law the review or what federal law enforcement calls the exploitation of the computers.
Is ongoing so with confirmation.
The defense believe the bombs were made in terror lists -- night's home clearly the investigative focus is very much in testifying intensifying rather on the widow Kathryn Russell -- Catherine Herridge in Washington thank you let's get insight into the investigation the criminal -- -- attorney Rebecca rose woodland.
And former FBI investigator Bill -- -- hear bill's also the senior vice president of control risks which is an international risk management firm this investigation is expand.
-- -- shepherd is expanding both here as well as overseas we're not hearing a lot about what's happening overseas that the FBI is over there working with the Russian authorities to find out.
Who and where temelin may have visited during his trip over there but this is certainly a stunning.
Development here we hear more about the the the wife the former wife and perhaps what was on the computer which -- We further learned that it appears multiple bombs were built right -- -- in their apartment it's crazy -- we're finding out possibly 800 square foot apartment they lived in.
Those bombs apparently built in the apartment she lived there.
What did she seeing what did she know prior to this what is she part of a conspiracy did she know anything was she involved did -- know -- not -- anything there's so many questions here and that's what -- they'll be a lot of focus on this.
What are you know what did you say what did you say.
Were you involved directly or -- too scared I mean there a different look we can't say that she was involved in the conspiracy maybe she was too scared to speak up.
But what happened before this attack and what was planned after.
After the bombing the pictures came out of the two suspects.
We now have information that suggests.
-- what is troubling things here with shepherd is both that statement as well as what we've heard about maybe other friends who who texted.
The youngest suspect -- now in custody.
-- saying you know we think they have your picture well are they calling the authorities -- first people who should be calling the authorities if they start sending information out.
To the suspects alerting them I would suggest that in some way they were providing some type of support or.
Maybe you -- and in some way.
Right now legally you're absolutely right that can be aiding and abetting.
That can be part of a conspiracy charge and that is where where -- what is the delineation did you send this to your husband.
Asking him is this to you or did you send it to alert him oh my god they know it's you.
There's a very big difference here and she's gonna have a lot of explaining to do with our attorney present I'm sure she was Moran -- but you know these -- -- big issues.
What do you think about.
How it is they're approaching her.
I think he's actually done it being done their very you know thought out manner I think it's both guidance from the US attorney as well as the FBI joint terrorism task force -- thinking this through carefully pursuant to make sure that whatever they find.
Is done in the appropriate way that -- later if it is.
Subject to prosecution can do it in -- in a way that those charges might stick again we don't know if that's the case.
That that was chip and judge -- being -- made but we do know that they're doing -- -- very thoughtful.
And and very thorough way I mean we have now have a computer.
Very helpful in the investigation and finding out what the two Brothers may have been thinking about beforehand who they communicated with and we're just learning now that's probably how they learned had to build a bomb.
You wonder how many people Laurence in and out of that apartment during this period when they were making these bombs because the evidence according to investigators are sources are telling us.
It appears there's evidence traces of bomb making materials in the bathroom in the kitchen all over.
Place and that's what's troubling and I think that's why.
This woman now is being used the center and focus of an ongoing investigation to find out.
What the plans -- Then and what the future plans where and who else was involved here and abroad we need to stop the terrorists so we need to get it the information from her as to what what was going not.
What was a group.
Rebecca rose woodland -- Daly thank you both thank you.
