(NBC News) The federal prison holding Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a haunted history and a colorful cast of alumni — including a mobster nearing age 100, a disgraced hedge fund whiz and a man described by prosecutors as a jihadi who trained with a paintball gun.

According to NBC News:

Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the attack on the Boston Marathon, was moved Friday from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston to the Federal Medical Center Devens, nestled in pleasant woods about 40 miles outside the city.

The facility is specially designed for inmates who need medical care. Tsarnaev has gunshot wounds to the neck, leg and hand, and during his first hospital interrogation he was still so badly injured he could only communicate by writing and shaking his head.
