FBI Releases Images of Suspects in Boston Marathon Bombing

Thursday, April 18, 2013

After a wave of wrong pictures circulated online and made to the front page of the New York Post, the FBI has released photos of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings. The agency is asking for the public's help in identifying them.


FBI Agent Richard DesLauriers says one the suspects is believed to have planted the devices near the finish line of the race. He says both suspects are considered armed and extremely dangerous. The explosions Monday killed three people and injured more than 180. The FBI asks that people use the number 1-800-CALL-FBI to share any information they might have.

The FBI is calling this person, "Suspect 2."

FBI: "Suspect 1"


FBI: "Suspects 1 and 2"

The FBI also released surveillance video.

Sorry to call it as I see it but...this looks like a witch-hunt.

I agree with Jack. I kept asking myself what skin color they have because it's a huge factor in the population group. Also, we all know that if they were not white it would have been mentioned. I momentarily felt like I was watching Fox News.

I was right! They are young men, just as I predicted. I don't think anyone else made this prediction, because they didn't even realize it was worth nothing that probabilities for committing individual or group violence would exclude over half the population.
