While Boston frantically searched for him, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apparently wasn’t very worried. The 19-year-old was on the campus of University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, where the suspect was a sophomore, and went to class every day after the attack until officials released his photograph late Thursday, reports CNN. On Wednesday, two days after the Boston Marathon bombing, Tsarnaev went to the gym and, according to a witness, even attended a party at night with his soccer buddies, according to the Boston Globe.
“He was just relaxed,” the unnamed witness said. Tsarnaev led such a typical student life after the bombing that even after his photo was released as a suspect, some who knew him didn’t make the connection. “We made a joke like—that could be Dzhokhar,” said a 22-year-old resident assistant at the dorms where Tsarnaev lived. “But then we thought it just couldn’t be him. Dzhokhar? Never.”
