Suspects Identified In Boston Marathon Bombing: One Dead, Another On The Run
After days of speculation and reactionary media coverage from CNN and the New York Post, it is now being reported that the FBI has identified two suspects in the Bombing of the Boston Marathon.
According to Fox, the FBI has taken interest in specific images of individuals wearing large backpacks that may have contained the bombs. The two suspects are brothers, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaey, who resides in Cambridge, Mass, and 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed last night in a shootout. The suspects are originally from Russia but have spent most of their life growing up in the U.S.
Yahoo News reports on how the older brother, Tamerlan, was died, stating:
The suspect who died of wounds in Beth Israel hospital was injured by gunshots and what appeared to be a bomb blast. An explosive device similar to the one used in the marathon bombing was found and defused in Watertown. It is thought the dead suspect may have been body-wired with explosives.
Investigators recovered a distorted pressure cooker lid near the scene and believe it was part of one of the two bombs that went off. Reports also suggest that the incident is a single act of terrorism and is not connected to a larger scheme.
