CANADA (PIX11) — The aunt of the Boston bombing suspects is sounding off about the FBI’s investigation of her two nephews 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, claiming the evidence they have appears to be “staged.”

Maret Tsarnaev spoke to reporters outside her home in Canada where she described everything as being “perfect” within the family, calling the boys’ father a “very loving, soft-hearted” man, among other things.

In her very colorful press conference — one that rivals the suspects’ uncle who spoke earlier Friday — she claims there was something “unnatural” about the surveillance footage.

“I am suspicious that this was staged. The picture was staged,” she said, claiming the FBI needs to provide more information about the evidence against the Tsarnaev brothers.

Watch as she lashes out during a very bizarre Q&A with reporters.
