A Possible Motive

As he hid inside a boat in the Watertown neighborhood, Tsarnaev allegedly scrawled the words "F*** America" and "Praise Allah," and other Anti-American statements on the side panels before his capture, according to an ABC News report on May 16. He previously told authorities the attacks were motivated by U.S. involvement in the Muslim nations of Afghanistan and Iraq, CNN reported. (Photo: Darren McCollester/Getty Images)
