Bombing suspect responding to questions by writing

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has begun responding to investigators’ questions.

According to NBC News, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody after an intense manhunt and gun battle in Watertown, Massachusetts. NBC reports Tsarnaev responded to questions primarily in writing because of a throat wound.

Tsarnaev remains in serious condition in the hospital, investigators say his throat wound may be the result of a failed suicide attempt.

Authorities told NBC News that a special high value detainee interrogation team will question Tsarnaev without informing him of his Miranda Rights. Investigators can question suspects without informing them of their rights to remain silent and to an attorney present when officials believe they may have information pertinent to public safety threat.
