BOSTON – The Federal Bureau of Investigation released images of two individuals allegedly involved in the Boston Marathon bombing that took place Monday, leaving three dead and over 180 injured. Now the FBI is looking to the public for help in identifying these two suspects.
FBI agent Richard DesLauriers said the suspects – referred to as Suspect 1, a person wearing a dark-colored ball cap; and Suspect 2, an individual with a white cap worn backwards – were captured on surveillance footage shortly before the explosions occurred. One of the suspects is believed to be wearing a backpack that matches the shredded remnant of one that carried a pressure cooker-bomb the FBI believes was used in the incident.
DesLauriers also said the suspects should be considered armed and extremely dangerous, and that the public should not attempt to approach either individual. Anyone who thinks they may have seen the suspects is strongly encouraged to contact the authorities.
