The shaggy hair and haunting stare of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers, has angered many who say it's a disservice to the victims, but the magazine says it hoped to look at how a seemingly normal teen became a "monster."
1. "To think that a kid we mentored and loved like a son could have been responsible for all this death."
2. One of the agents with the FBI's Crisis Negotiating Unit invoked Payack's name when Tsarnaev was bleeding and being asked to surrender while hiding in a boat. The negotiator told Payack he thought it helped end the standoff.
3. He "liked soccer, hip-hop, girls; obsessed over The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones; and smoked a copious amount of weed."
4. The mother of the two brothers adored them. "Jahar was the baby," his mother's "dwog," or "heart."
5. Tsarnaev is said to have assimilated best among his family.
6. Only one friend recalls even one red flag about terrorism from the suspect.
7. He kept his family life separate from school, sports, and friends.
8. His brother Tamerlan gave signs that he had a darker side, though. He once told his mother that he felt like he had two people living inside him.
9. Tamerlan began to read more Islamic websites, as well as U.S. conspiracy sites, like Alex Jones' InfoWars.
10. Tamerlan told his brother and visiting Muslim friend to focus on their faith if they were going to be on the internet. He gave them a book called Islam 101.
11. Tsarnaev's sisters were Americanized but then they vanished. Both girls were reportedly set up in arranged marriages. "Underneath it all, they were a screwed-up family," Nikeava, the Tsarnaevs' neighbor, says.
12. During two years in college, Tsarnaev was homesick, suffered from insomnia, had repeated zombie dreams, and missed his dad.
13. "Never underestimate the rebel with a cause," he declared on Twitter, following more Islamic accounts.
14. He was failing his classes and his family lost its welfare benefits in November 2012.
15. "Friends of Jahar's would later tell the FBI that he'd once mentioned he knew how to build bombs. But no one seemed to really take it all that seriously."
