FBI spokesman Jason Pack confirms agents went to the North Kingstown home of Katherine Russell's parents Monday. Russell, Tsarnaev's widow, has been staying there.

Russell did not speak to reporters as she left her attorneys' office in Providence later in the day. Attorney Amato DeLuca says she's doing everything she can to assist with the investigation.

Attorneys have previously said Russell and her family were in shock when they learned of the allegations against her husband and brother-in-law, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv).

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gun battle with police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction.
