Federal investigators search a North Kingstown connected to the Boston marathon bombing. They left with items of unknown importance to the investigation

Ever since this part of the investigation broke, attorneys for the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev say their client is cooperating, and did not know of the bombing plot. But today it was clear the FBI is looking for something in the Russell family house, where Katherine is living with her parents.

Just after 2 O'clock, FBI Agents carrying bags of potential evidence left the home Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, widow of the Boston bomber.

"Katherine do you have any comment? Any comment Mr. Deluca?," shouted ABC6 Reporter Mark Curtis.

No one said a word and Katherine drove away with her lawyers. The FBI left with the items removed from the home.

ABC6 News Mark Curtis said, "This is the 11th consecutive day that federal agents and the local and national media have been camped out in front of Katherine Russell Tsarnaev home. But this is the first time any significant action has occurred."

No one is saying what was in the bags investigators took from the home or their potential significance to the Boston Marathon bombings. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that DNA from a female was found on some the of the bomb fragments. Neighbors who know the Russell's reacted to the latest developments.

Dave Mather, a neighbor of the Russell family said, "We still don't know what to say. You know you'd like to think the best of people, but we just don't know. It makes you a little bit nervous." 

After the FBI left the Russell home in North Kingstown, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev went to her lawyer's office but declined to speak with an ABC6 crew at the scene.
