(PIX11)- The dossier of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev is being laid out, and it’s beginning to show two young men who came to the states in search of the American dream, only to inflict one of the darkest acts of violence the country has experienced.

Charges have not been filed against the lone surviving alleged bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as he recovers in the same hospital that is treating victims from the two pressure cooker bombs.

Tamerlan was an accomplished boxer who admitted to not understanding Americans.

One of his boxing coaches described him as a “phenomenal” athlete and “extremely bright.”

Family members have told the media that he became increasingly religious and more radical in recent years.

His YouTube page was filled with a playlist called terrorists.

It’s also being reported that he traveled to Russia last year for several months.

The FBI confirms he was investigated at the request of another nation last year.

It is this transformation in recent years that may have influenced his younger brother Dzhokhar to commit an act of terror against the country that embraced the 19-year-old as a citizen last 9/11.

A former stand-out high school wrestler in high school, Dzhokhar tweeted after the attacks that he was a stress free kind of guy.

According to law enforcement he killed his older brother when ran him over in the midst of a wild shootout that included bombs being tossed.

Dzhokhar somehow escaped but ultimately was tracked down last night hiding in a boat in Watertown.
