The AC360 Weekly Buzz: Boston bombing victims one month later, Cleveland kidnapping case, Angelina Jolie's announcement, Texas tornadoes, hero tattoo

What everyone’s talking about:
This week marks the one month anniversary of the deadly Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured hundreds more. Among the wounded was Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a dance teacher who lost part of her left leg. She has agreed to let AC360° follow her journey back to the dance floor. Adrianne spoke candidly with Anderson about her hardest struggles in the recovery process, including a recent fall that made the amputation seem more real to her. Adrianne jokes that she was “not behaving” when she hopped from her bed to grab something from her closet, but lost her balance. “It definitely woke me up and made me realize that I need to take a little bit better care of myself and slow down.” She is determined to dance again and reminded Anderson of his promise to be her student when she’s ready.

Today we learned a fascinating new detail about the Boston bombings investigation. In a note left on the boat in Watertown, Mass. where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured by police, he wrote that the bombings were payback for U.S. wars in Muslim lands. Details have also emerged about the manhunt for the suspect and his brother. CNN’s Drew Griffin returned to Watertown to investigate what really happened during the shootout between the Boston police and the Tsarnaev brothers.
