BOSTON, MA – It now looks like the Fourth was supposed to be the first.

The surviving Brother Tsarnaev, Dzhokhar, apparently told investigators that he and his dead brother Tamerlan intended to kill themselves during a bombing attack during Boston’s Fourth of July celebrations attended by tens of thousands of people.

Dzhokhar says the changed their plans to the April 15th Boston Marathon because their bombs were ready sooner than they expected. Bombs little brother says they built in the home Tamerlan shared with his wife and child.

As investigators continue to put together the pieces of this puzzle, the bombing victims, like Marc Fucarile are trying to piece together their lives. He lost one leg, has the other leg shattered, and his arms riddled with shrapnel.

He says he gets his strength from a photo of his 5-year-old son:

‘Every time they stuck me with another needle or they cut me or cut something or did something, when they were ripping, changing bandages, I was looking at that picture, that’s what got me through it.’

Three people who never met, but whose lives will be linked together, forever.
