NEWS UPDATE – Boston Marathon Bombing Gets BIG Break!

Shortly ago the FBI held a news conference about the Boston Marathon bombing. They have identified two suspects and have provided photographs for the public to use to assist in finding these suspects. I watched the news conference real time and would like to share the salient points with you, My Dear Readers.

First here is the situation;

“This morning the FBI, along with Boston PD, Massachusetts State Police, and ATF officially began its forensic evidence recovery effort at the site. Their goal was to recover physical items related to the blast. Those items have been recovered and sent to the FBI’s Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia. “


“Among items partially recovered are pieces of black nylon—which could be from a backpack—and what appear to be fragments of BBs and nails possibly contained in a pressure cooker device. We are expediting this blast evidence to our Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia for a complete and thorough analysis.”


Therefore, these two suspects used two “pressure cooker” type bomb devices to execute this terrorist act. This is good solid information that should be used by local law enforcement and citizens. We now know what the suspects look like, and where they might have frequented prior to the bombing. Let’s move on;


“In addition, this morning, it was determined that both of the explosives were placed in a dark-colored nylon bag or backpack. The bag would have been heavy because of the components believed to be in it.”


Ok, this is good information too. “Dark-colored nylon back pack” If you look at the captioned pictures you will see the back packs clearly. This is quite helpful and all Americans should be informing themselves. What else?


“All across the nation, and around the world, the force of the United States is working hard to locate those responsible.

Already, the FBI has received more than 2,000 tips as of noon today, many of which have already been reviewed, analyzed, and vetted.

We will continue to work around the clock, tirelessly, side by side with our partners to continue to investigate and act on these leads.”

And finally;

“At this time, there are no claims of responsibility. The range of suspects and motives remains wide-open.

Importantly, the person who did this is someone’s friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative. We are asking anyone who may have heard someone speak about the marathon or the date of April 15 in any way that indicated he or she may target the event to call us. Someone knows who did this.

Cooperation from the community will play a crucial role is this investigation. We ask that businesses review and preserve surveillance video and other business records in their original form. And we are asking the public remain alert and to alert us to the following activity:

 An individual who expressed a desire to target the marathon;

 Suspicious interest in researching how to create explosive device;

 The noise of explosions in remote areas prior to yesterday which may have been used as tests by those responsible;

 Someone who appeared to be carrying an unusually heavy, dark-colored bag yesterday around the time of the blasts and in the vicinity of the blasts.

As further substantive details become available that are appropriate for release, then together we will either issue a release or hold a press conference.

Tomorrow, we plan to hold another press conference in the early afternoon.

Thank you very much, and I also want to thank the public for their tremendous support in this investigation.”

Let me share something that Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said in questioning after the statement.

WE are the BEST resource for finding these suspects. The American people are the best resource the F.B.I. has in it’s pursuit of these suspects and improving the likelihood of their capture. However, please consider these suspects armed and dangerous and should NOT be approached by anyone but law enforcement officers.

IF you see either of these suspects call (800) CALL FBI (or 1-800-255-5324) and report your information. If you are unable to do that, just dial 911 and they will get the information to the F.B.I.


I just cannot stress the importance of assisting our nation’s law enforcement in this matter. We all need to be observant; we all need to be diligent. If we all do that and report what we see we can capture and convict these suspects.
