FBI Releases Video of Possible Suspects in Boston Bombing

Seeking the public’s help, the FBI on Thursday released images of two men they say are suspects in Monday’s Boston Marathon bomb blasts and believed "armed and dangerous."

“Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members of the suspects,” said FBI Special Investigator Charge Rick DesLauriers during a news conference in Boston. “Though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us.”

“If you see these men, contact law enforcement,” he said.http://www.c-span.org/Events/Update-on-Investigation-into-Boston-Marathon-Bombing/10737439274-4/ Anyone with information on the two men are being asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI or visit the FBI’s website at www.FBI.gov.

 

An array of photo images of the two men--described as taken from video of the area near the two bomb sites shortly before the blasts--were to be posted on FBI.gov.

No other details of the investigation were released. As of Thursday, no group still had yet claimed responsibility for the bombings.

The photos released by the FBI do not depict either man--one wearing a black cap and carrying a backpack, and the other a white cap--as actually seeming to be planting an explosive device near the finish line of the marathon on Monday.  

Asked during the news conference if FBI has such an image, DesLauriers said, “The only one who was observed planting what we believed to be an explosive device was suspect No. 2, with a white cap.” He said that the same man proceeded west--“and that’s all we know right now.”

“There is no additional imminent danger that we are aware of right now,” he said, alhough he added of the two suspects, “We consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous. …”

DesLauriers said a focus on the two men began when one of them was determined to be a “single person of interest.” It was then determined the other man--whom he called suspect No. 2, with the white hat--“seemed to be associated,” he said.

“No bit of information--no matter how small or inconsequential--is too small for us to see,” he said, in urging the public’s help.
