Ibragim Todashev

ORLANDO, Fla. - The body of a man shot and killed by an FBI agent in Orlando a month ago is on its way to Russia Tuesday night.

Ibragim Todashev's body was put on a Russian commercial plane and sent overseas just after 5 p.m.

Todashev was being questioned in an Orlando apartment last month about a triple murder in the Boston area involving one of the Boston bombing suspects.

The FBI claimed he became combative and was shot.

His family said it's a case of excessive force and wants the Department of Justice to investigate.
