WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- Congressman Mike Rogers says the FBI investigated one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects in 2011 over concerns of extremism.

The Howell Republican told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the FBI found nothing conclusive at the time on Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  He was killed early Friday morning, while his younger brother survived and is in a Boston hospital.

Rogers says the dead suspect spent over six months in Russia last year and he believes his radicalization intensified during that time.
