The DNA and fingerprints on a bomb fragment recovered from the scene of Boston Marathon attacks do not match the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, according CBS News.

FBI agents visited the widow of suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev at her family’s home in North Kingstown, R.I., on April 29. CBS News reports that FBI went to the Rhode Island home with a court order to collect a DNA sample from Katherine Russell.

"That could end up being anybody – a store clerk, one of the victims of the bombings – and they may never know,” said CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.

Russell lived with Tsarnaev and their 3-year-old child in Cambridge. Her parents still live in Rhode Island.
