Ibragim Todashev's father Abdulbaki Todashev is requesting a full investigation be conducted into the murder of his son. Abdulbaki was present at a news conference Thursday in Moscow, Russia holding a photo of his son who FBI agents questioned in regards to the Boston Marathon bombing. 

According to Ibragim's father his son was questioned three separate times by the FBI. The Washington Post identifies those occassions as; first questions in regards to the bombing, second a triple murder in Waltham, Massachusets and lastly an interview at Todashev's home which included state troopers. It was the last interview on May 22, 2013 when Ibragim was shot and killed by an FBI agent after being questioned about his relationship with Tamerlan Tsarnaev one of the alleged Boston bombers

 His father is convinced that his son was murdered by the FBI to prevent him from talking. He said at the news conference Thursday,“I want justice, I want an investigation,” he said at a Moscow news conference. “They come to your house like bandits, and they shoot you.”

According to Tamerlan his son was executed and justice needs to be served.

On Wednesday the Washington Post was informed that Ibragim was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
