Tsarnaev attorney: Video of accused placing bomb down "does not exist"

Defense attorney David Bruck today told a federal court that what authorities have described as a central piece of the prosecution's evidence against his client "does not exist."

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, public officials including the former Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI office Richard DesLauriers and the former governor of the state of Massachusetts told the public about a "chilling" video that all but proved the young Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's guilt. Speaking on NBC's Face the Nation, Governor Deval Patrick said the video shows Tsarnaev placing a backpack down and walking away, just before it explodes.

"It does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion," the two-term Massachusetts governor said. "It’s pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly."

Later Governor Patrick disclosed that he had not seen the video.
