"I say Dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness!"

Barking angry words in front of dozens of media cameras, Ruslan Tsarni, the uncle of the two bombing suspects enraged by what police say his nephews have done, and setting the record straight about their motives.

"Being losers, hatred toward those who were able to settle themselves, these are the only reasons I can imagine myself. Anything else to do with religion, with Islam, is a fraud is a fake," said Tsarni.

While the uncle has no sympathy, the suspects' aunt, Maret Tsarnaev, is angered for a different reason, calling the FBI directly when police named her nephews as suspects.

"My first call to FBI, they could not have done this. Where is the evidence? All you are showing is just the footage, two guys are walking, and I thought it strange ... Tamerlan is in the front, Dzhokhar is in the back .... why wouldn't they come together?" said Tsarnaev.

The aunt goes on to say she knew the older brother had recently become very religious, praying 5 times a day, but she makes no apologies.

"I would rather him praying then him smoking, doing drugs, or doing some other awful stuff," she said.

The suspects' father, Anzor Tsarnaev, taking it a step further, calling it a set up and threatening if his youngest boy is killed quote "all hell will break loose."

"Someone framed them. I don't know exactly who did it, but someone did. Damn cowards, they shot the boy dead," said Tsarnaev.

And the media also able to reach the suspects' mother outside the Chechyn Republic, she too doesnt believe her boys are guilty.

"It's impossible, impossible for both of them to do such things. So I'm saying this is really,really, really, really a set up because my son would tell me. He would never keep it in secret," said the suspects' mother.
