Boston bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev has tweeted since the Boston Marathon bombings on what two friends of his tell CNN is his Twitter account.
His tweets included one at 1:43 a.m. Wednesday that said, "I'm a stress free kind of guy."
On Monday at 8:04 p.m. -- hours after the bombings -- he tweeted a quote from rapper Jay-Z, "Ain't no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people."
On Tuesday shortly after midnight he tweeted, "There are people that know the truth but stay silent & there are people that speak the truth but we don't hear them cuz they're the minority."
Tsarnaev does not describe himself in his Twitter profile, which reads only, "Salam aleikum."
The most recent tweet is one he retweeted on Wednesday from Mufti Ismail Menk, who identifies himself as a Muslim scholar. "Attitude can take away your beauty no matter how good looking you are or it could enhance your beauty, making you adorable," the tweet reads.
Another tweet from Tsarnaev on Tuesday was a quote from rapper Eminem: "Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say but nothin comes out when they move their lips; just a bunch of gibberish."
After another Twitter account posted a photo Tuesday saying it showed a man who was going to propose to his girlfriend at the marathon in Boston and found her dead, Tsarnaev tweeted a two-word response: "fake story."
Another of Tsarnaev's tweets from Tuesday reads, "So then I says to him, I says, relax bro my beard is not loaded." On Friday, another Twitter user retweeted that message, and added the words, "But my backpack is."
One suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is dead. The other -- his brother- - was on the run Friday, pursued by an army of police whose manhunt virtually shut down the city.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after an overnight shootout with police. He's the man described Thursday by the FBI as black-capped Suspect No. 1 in the attacks that killed three. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, apparently escaped -- leading police to throw a huge dragnet around the region.
Developments moved quickly:
-- Connecticut authorities said a gray Honda CR-V with Massachusetts license plates had been recovered in the Boston area. An earlier alert said the vehicle "could possibly be occupied" by the surviving suspect. Meanwhile, heavily armed police swarmed over a Watertown, Massachusetts, neighborhood looking for the man, identified by Boston police as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.
-- The slain suspect, identified by several sources as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, the fugitive suspect's older brother, was wearing explosives and a triggering device when he died, a source briefed on the investigation told CNN's Deborah Feyerick.
-- A Maryland man who said he was the suspects' uncle told CNN affiliate WBZ that Tamerlan Tsarnaev "got what he deserved." "What can I say for people who have been murdered? Sympathy," Ruslan Tsarni said. But a neighbor and former teacher at the high school Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended described the younger brother as "a wonderful kid" who seemed incapable of such violence.
-- According to a source briefed on the investigation, the brothers came from the Russian Caucasus and had moved to Kazakhstan at a young age before coming to the United States several years ago.
-- Police ordered businesses in the suburb of Watertown and nearby communities to stay closed and told residents to stay inside and answer the door for no one but authorities. Boston authorities advised the same. The city's subway, bus, Amtrak train systems and Greyhound and Bolt Bus -- a regional carrier -- have been shut down. Taxi service across the city also was suspended for time during the manhunt. Every Boston area school is closed.
--The search followed a violent night in which authorities say the men allegedly hurled explosives at pursuers after killing Massachusetts Institute of Technology police Officer Sean Collier, robbing a convenience store and hijacking a car.
Police warned Watertown residents to lock their homes and stay away from their windows and doors.
"It's jarring," said CNN Belief blog writer Danielle Tumminio, who lives in Watertown.
Oluwaseun Odewale, who lives in Arlington, described his neighborhood as "deathly quiet."
"All my doors are double-locked. It's silent all around, there are no usual sounds of cars, nothing," he said.
Boston's public transit authority sent city buses to Watertown to evacuate residents while bomb experts combed the surroundings for possible explosives.
Police officers in full body armor, carrying automatic weapons, flooded the area, traveling the streets in convoys and going door-to-door to track the suspect down.
Massachusetts State Police spokesman Col. Timothy Alben asked residents for patience.
"We need more time," he said. "We're making significant progress up there. But it may take hours to do this."
"This situation is grave." Alben said earlier. "This is a very serious situation that we are dealing with."
The violence began late
