WOODBURY - Relatives of the two brothers believed to be behind the bombings at the Boston Marathon are openly torn over their alleged involvement.
The suspects' sister refused to show her face today at her home in West New York, a town in northern New Jersey. But through a cracked door, she told reporters that she was shocked to hear of the manhunt. She added that she hasn't seen her brothers in a long time.
Meanwhile, an uncle of the two brothers spoke to reporters outside his Maryland home. He delivered condolences to the victims of the attack and said he was shocked and ashamed by his family's connection to the tragedy.
