The aunt of the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects is requesting that additional proof be given that show her nephews behind the heinous acts.

According to The Star, Maret Tsarnaev spoke to the media from her Toronto residence.

"I am a lawyer and there are four of us in the family. I can't lightly accept this kind of accusations without supporting evidence. Forgive me, but I cannot. Could it be staged? I have to question everything. That's my nature," she said.

Police are currently on a manhunt for 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who survived an overnight shootout and police chase while his older brother Tamerlan, 26, was killed.

The aunt stated that she hasn't spoken to her nephews in roughly five years. To the best of her knowledge, Tamerlan was married to a Christian woman who he had a three-year-old child with.

Maret acknowledged that both of the suspects were Muslim, but admitted that she wasn't too sure how devoted they were.

Nonetheless, she went on to explain her initial reaction upon hearing they were suspects.

"I called FBI line first - that's the number i called. Knowing these two boys, believing strongly that they woudln't do this - thats why i called. But I called not right away. First reaction was anger. How could this happen, how could they do this? for the sake of what? what beliefs? what prompted them to this? this reaction. But I went through the material. My first call to FBI - I said they could not have done this where is evidence? I'm suspicious that this was staged. The picture was staged. Whoever is looking for those who need to be blamed. "

Meanwhile, Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva has been named as the mother of Boston Marathon Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev.

According to DailyMail, 45-year-old Zubeidat was arrested last year for allegedly stealing clothes worth $1600 from Lord and Taylor department store.

The mother was charged with two counts of malicious/wanton damage and defacement to property after trying to steal the clothes from the upscale shop in Massachusetts.

Ironically, video surveillance footage of the two bombers were taken near the Lord and Taylor department store near the site of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Alina Tsarnaeva, the sister of the bombers, has spoken to media about her disbelief that her brothers had carried out the crime.

The woman spoke from her West New York, New Jersey apartment, behind a man who is her husband.

"They were great people. I never would have expected it," said Alina, according to nj.com "They are smart - I don't know what's gotten into them."

Police surrounded her apartment just before 11 a.m. and she is registered as living there with the same last name as the bombers.

When asked if she was OK, she said: "No I'm not okay - no one is okay right now. I'm hurt for everyone who has been hurt. I'm sorry for all the people who are hurt and for all the people who lost their lives."

Alina has not seen her brothers for several years. Meanwhile, the father of the bombers, who lives in Russia, couldn't believe that his sons were involved in the bombings.

"I feel terrible! Why they kill my son? Something wrong! My sons never do bombing. They hated guns - how they do bombs?," father Anzor Tsamaev told PEOPLE.

"I talked to my sons yesterday, both of them. We talked about the bombing. I was worried about them, they said they were okay."

He spoke kindly of his sons, saying they were great kids with big dreams. "I am very depressed. How am I going to live? Never I think in my mind this happen. My sons hate people who do bombs, they hate terrorists. Why they kill my son? And where is my other son? They have time to catch my other son, not kill."
